Powder skiing in Arinsal

After a fantastic start to December the snow seemed to have a holiday for a couple of weeks but came back with a vengeance for January, delivery epic snow conditions which are the best for several years!  Over one three day period the Arcalis sector of Vallnord received 2.5 metres, with all resorts getting well over a metre!

The snow hasn’t let up yet either, with almost daily snowfall adding to the perfect conditions with the occasional break of bright blue skies and sunshine offering some of the best powder skiing available.  The coming week’s forecast also offers plenty of new snow but also some clear days which should mean awesome powder fun and great weather for apres ski on the sun terraces.

If you haven’t booked your ski holiday yet this year then you should think about visiting Andorra to experience the conditions for yourself!  To find out more visit the ski holidays section of our website.
