Ski resort sheet
Next to Andorra la Vella, we find the alpine ski resort of Vallnord Pal Arinsal.
The Andorran ski resort wants to become a 100% real ski resort. The environment is one of the most important aspects to take into account because it considers the inhabitants, the reduction of plastic materials, the maintenance of the ski resort, and so on.
In fact, it is a ski resort that every year, winter or summer, make a garbage collection from the mountains of Pal in which all Vallnord-Pal Arinsal staff participates with the idea of enhancing the concept of maintenance and offering to the customers a clean and maintained ski resort.
Security is also multiplying. Since years ago, the ski resort is improving its signage so that everyone can orient themselves properly and enhance security at the same time.
Following this concept, 100% of the Vallnord-Pal Arinsal slopes are trodden daily. That means that during ski slopes maintenance hours, the workers step on all the slopes to offer a better service to the clients. Finally, slopes are opened every morning guaranteeing the safety.
It is one of the most complete skiable domains of the Pyrenees with a very complete offer in services, hotels, shops and most importantly, modern facilities and well-maintained slopes.
