If you’re a beginner or intermediate, then you’ll find these staggering, sweeping runs ideal for building your confidence. The many cable cars, magic carpet lifts and gondolas will take you up to the tip of the pistes in Arinsal to get going. The experts say it’s best to work your way over to Pal, especially if you want a steady start.
Cruise down the blue and red snowboard tracks or check out the off-piste options. The tree-covered resort wins gold for steep Andorran black runs, too. So, if you’re looking to unleash your daring side, Pal has some awesome jumps – plus there’s space for slalom racing.
Down the mountain
The peaceful mountain village has a bit of an after-dark buzz. Among the grey Catalan architecture, you’ll find discos, bars and pubs giving Pal-Arinsal its particularly rated reputation for après-ski. It’s mostly a slow-paced affair, but there are a clutch of cool bars, including the ironic Surf Bar.
