It is true that the main purpose for a ski holiday is, of course, to ski, but you will agree with me that après ski is almost as important as skiing, and a good dinner to recover after a long day on the mountain or a few beers with your friends to discuss the best fall of the day is essential in any ski holiday.(more…)
Is it your first time in Pal Arinsal? For those who are new in this Vallnord ski resort it is important to know that it is formed by two different areas, Pal and Arinsal, both included under the same ski pass and connected by the mountain via cable car but also by road thanks to the Vallnord Free Bus service.
Are you coming to ski in Arinsal? Is it your first ski holiday? Well, the first thing we want to clarify is that you must know that skiing is not all about skiing. There are many other things that will make your holiday a top experience. And of course, one of the most important is the “après-ski”, which means, take a beer after skiing or recover strength eating a good fondue, or a pizza, to return to the slopes the next day with more energy. That’s why we’ve made a list of the restaurants and bars you can find in Arinsal, depending on what you like, so you know where to go once you arrive in resort. (more…)

Nowadays we are fully connected and there is hardly a second that we are separated from our phones, not even when sleeping. Therefore, when we head to the mountain, apart from taking our goggles, gloves and helmet, there is a must, the mobile phone! It could be uncomfortable, but everyone is skiing with their phone in their pocket, either for security reasons, to contact friends or just to take a snowy selfie. Technology is a major part of our lives, but without a doubt, the mobile is the winner, that’s why apps have been gaining importance day by day (supposedly) making life easier.
If you are going on a ski holiday this season, these are the apps you should have on your phone to help you enjoy the snow to the fullest!
We know that you are already counting down the days to get to the slopes. However, we must be aware that skiing is a very active sport, and that means it requires physical fitness. That’s why we recommend you starting NOW your pre-season training if you want to get the most out of your ski holiday, avoiding unnecessary injuries and pains.
As in any sport, the physical condition is extremely important for skiing, because even if you have a perfect technique it won’t do you any good if your body is not prepared to execute it. Definitely, the legs are the part of the body that works the hardest, but we must not forget the importance of arms, abdomen and back, which makes skiing one of the most complete sports. Here you have a weekly workout schedule to help you get ready to hit the slopes this winter! (more…)
