There have been 2 major developments in recent years, firstly the linking of Arinsal resort to pal in 2004 via a 50-person cable car with 63kms of slopes. Arinsal, pal, and Arcalis resorts combined forms the Vallnord ski area that has a respectable 93km of pistes, however, the 30km of runs in Arcalis has to be reached by bus. The Vallnord ski area is the perfect ski holiday for beginners and intermediate skiers. Secondly, there has been a major development of modern hotels in the resort, where we have many Arinsal ski holiday packages on offer where it is possible to fly from your local airport.
In Arinsal the first lifts were installed in 1973 by Josep Sera, and since then it has developed into a great holiday resort.
