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!

The slopeside location means it’s the perfect place if you’re wanting to make the most of your time on the slopes, and is set to become a favourite with families. (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…)

If you’re looking for a family ski holiday then Arinsal is somewhere you should consider, especially with these two new promotions which have just been launched on our website.
First up, if you book two adults into group ski or snowboard school then we’ll book your children into creche or snow garden free of charge! That’s 19 hours of free childcare!! To find out more please visit this page >>
The second new initiative is to lower the age for children going into group lessons, so now if you want your children to have group ski lessons they can do so from just four years upwards! To book lessons visit our online shop >>
Apart from these two new promotions, Arinsal ski school is renowned for have great instructors, many of whom are British, which means it’s much easy to learn because you’ve got somebody who can help you in your own language. The ski school has also just been approved by BASI (British Association of Ski Instructors) which reaffirms the quality of instruction available.
Recent heavy snowfall means Andorra has been able to get ready to open over the past few days, and today the slopes are now open!! It’s the moment we’ve been eagerly anticipating since April, but today slopes have opened in the Arcalis sector of Vallnord, then over in Grandvalira the sectors of Pas de la Casa, Grau Roig and Soldeu have slopes open (although not yet linked together).
More snow is on the forecast in the coming days so the technical teams will work hard to open as many slopes as possible as soon as they can.
