Ski Lifts in Arinsal

The ski lift infrastructure is good and Vallnord is putting a lot of money into making it work with 28 lifts carrying up to 34,100 skiers per hour in Pal-Arinsal and over in the Ordino-Arcalis sector the 13 lifts have the capacity for 16,510 skiers per hour.

Arinsal Ski Lifts 

From the main car park in Arinsal, the 4-person cable car known as Telecabine Els Orriols rises nearly 500m up into the Arinsal Valley to Comallempla where the resort’s main mountain restaurants, bars, ski schools, cash point and medical centre are to be found.

From here there are chairlifts to the very top of the valley which connect by cable car to Coll de la Botella from which it’s possible to take the Chairlift La Botella, and drag lifts, to the very top of Pic del Cubil (2,358m).

The lift system is simply numbered 1-30 and the piste map makes it clear at each incline what you can expect. Terminology is given in French (as we are near the French border) and translates as follows: Telesiege (Chair Lift). Teleski (Drag Lift) and Telecabine (Cable Car)

There are also tapis roulantes (conveyor belts) one telecorde (tow rope behind a piste basher) and a large cable car connecting two sides of the Coll de la Botella.
