"Arinsal-No experience necessary" Arinsal by Buckz

Arinsal Travel Guide: 52 reviews and 47 photos

Beginners all

When it comes to Ski-ing, those who can, do. The rest go to Arinsal. Long may it continue. Great village great ski school and good facilities for first timers. Also it is one place that no matter how bad you are, you don't stand out.

In the land of the Blind

The one eyed Myopic man is king.
In Andorra having any basic ski-ing knowledge makes a BIG difference. At the start of each week there are hundreds of people on the Nursery, but barely 30-40 in intermediate classes. Better than this, there was a group for
"had lessons on Dry slope",
and like the experienced skiers we were taken up the mountain to the higher (empty!) slopes. 4 lessons on a dry slope made a huge difference to the trip.

Stunning Scenery

Even the trip up to the piste is a pleasure to see.

    How to fell from a chair lift: Wake late, decide to catch with friends having gone skiing,board chair lift in a hurry, forget to pull the security rail down. When the lift's guy yells at you,turn to listen,drop your poles.Try to catch them. Booom! OOOch !

    This reminds me of my 1st time skiing. I was 9. I skipped the bunny slope and headed for the steepest slope. Coming down was awesome but I realized I didn't know how to stop. I went past the lodge and into the parking lot and BANG!!! Getting mail?
