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…)
There are many ways to enjoy the mountains – whether it be skiing, snowboarding, sledging, snowmobiling, or simply soaking up the sunshine on one of the many terraces… But have you ever considered cross-country skiing? (more…)
The mountain is beautiful during the day, but have you ever been on the mountain at night? It’s even better! The other day we received an unexpected invitation: a dinner at the Xalet Igloo, on the slopes of Arinsal and of course, we didn’t want to miss it. (more…)
Going on a skiing holiday with little ones is very exciting, and of course, it’s only natural that you would want your children to develop the same passion for the mountains and snow-sports that you have. However, skiing every day can be mentally and physically demanding, and can become tiring for even the fittest of adults – let alone young children. So it’s a great idea to mix your holiday up a little and spend some time away from the slopes to relax, recover and have some fun!

Below we have provided you with a run down of the fantastic facilities available, including details of prices, opening times and other useful information so that you don’t have to waste precious time researching the details yourself.
