Arinsal School Ski Trips
Idyllic Village Setting

Arinsal is a great resort village located in a steep valley amongst the north western mountains of Andorra, in the parish of La Massana. The village is set at a height of 1,550 metres, with the top of the slopes reaching 2,560 metres.

Skiers and snowboarders head here during the winter months, which brings the town to life with lots of bars and restaurants open to cater for the influx of tourists. Arinsal has in recent years increased its’ ski areas to cater for beginners providing an all round experience no matter what ability level your students are at. Baby Gorraz, Baby Pila and Grimod are the easier runs with the natural progression to more challenging runs such as Leissé and Nouva.

Hand-picked for schools because of:

Fast and up-to-date ski lifts with snow cannons covering 62% of the ski area

70km of piste, so no day will be the same

The added bonus of excellent English speaking instructors
