Sitting in the Western end of the La Massana Valley in Andorra the small picturesque ski resort of Pal opens onto a charming wooded ski area and has links to the huge Vallnord domain. With access to 93km of downhill slopes and fantastic off-piste terrain Pal makes a great winter sports destination, but it's not just a ski resort. The village is one of the best preserved in Andorra and is home to the 9th century Church of Sant Climent, a unique example of Romanesque architecture with some interesting features that aren't seen anywhere else in the country. Having escaped most of the development which other resorts in the area have undergone Pal has maintained its traditional character and peaceful ambiance, so if you're looking for a relax authentic village where you can enjoy traditional charms as well as some excellent snow sports facilities Pal is the choice for you. The contrast between Pal and its nearest neighbour Arinsal are the crowds, Pal's slopes are normally incredibly quiet mid-week, with weekends slightly busier when the locals visit. And the ski area is unique in another way, it's the most densely wooded area in Andorra which provides lots of shelter when conditions are poor and great opportunities for glade skiing. Another great reason to spend your winter holiday in Pal is that the slopes and facilities of Arinsal are easily accessible so you can take advantage of the slopes which reach up to 2,560m, the great freestyle facilities, and the multitude of activities which are available across the Vallnord area like ski biking, snowmobiling, sledging, snowshoeing, hiking, and the helicopter tours which leave from Arinsal. Also available to you from Pal are the après ski activities found throughout the Vallnord area. Via the shuttle bus you can enjoy the fitness and leisure centres of Arinsal as well as its many bars and restaurants if you're looking for a lively night out. Or you can choose to relax in the quiet mountain inns of Pal, the choice is yours in this charming well-connected mountain village.
