Pal - Arinsal, Andorra

Pal has escaped much of the development that other resorts in Andorra have succumbed to. Pal is a quiet and picturesque mountain village over the ridge from Arinsal (about 5km by road), with a small, reasonably varied, wooded ski area a couple of kilometers further up the hill. It is remarkably different from its nearby neighbor, and the link between the ski areas is a great enhancement for both resorts.

Arinsal is a little village of Catalan slate and gray stone, near the head of a narrow valley north of Andorra La Vella. It has seen rapid development in recent years, giving the place a building-site appearance.

The gondola, from the village center to the mid-station, installed in 1999 put an end to the trek to the inconveniently situated chair-lift and the new link via a 50 person tram from Coll de la Botella in Pal's Seturia sector to Port Negre at the top of the Arinsal slopes finally linked the separate resorts of Pal and Arinsal in 2000. The new link has increased the area's appeal hugely. Snow making was also extended and now covers 17km/11miles of slopes.

News from european ski resorts

Excitement is mounting in the Alps as half a dozen glacier ski areas prepare to open for the winter 2008-9 in the first weeks of October in Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland. Cervinia, Engelberg and Tignes are all on the list of areas expected to join the resorts that have already opened, such as Pitztal in Austria, or have been open all summer like Sass Free and Zermatt in Switzerland, Passo Stelvio and Val Senales in Italy and Hintertux in Austria. Austria once again has the greatest choice of snow slopes, now back up to five for the first time since the spring with the Stubai glacier opening a month earlier than originally planned, Solden's glacier opening two weeks later than planned and the Kitzsteinhorn glacier above Kaprun, which had closed due to lack of snow on the glacier in August, reopening. They join Tux and the recently re-opened Pitztal glaciers. The Dachstein glacier is currently reported to be closed although it notes therte's 20cm (8 inches) of snow on the pistes.

Solden has only 3.1km (2miles) of piste open and three glacier lifts, with quite a thin covering of snow on the glacier pistes, but fresh snow has fallen giving a few centimetres of powder on top, so no one lucky enough to be there is complaining. The lifts are open from 9am to 1pm and reached by a bus service from the village. Elsewhere in Europe Tignes in France will re-open this Saturday, September 26th for its long season through to next May, 2010. Saas Fee and Zermatt are both still open with around 90cm (three feet) of snow each. In Italy the choice is between Passo Stelvio and Val Senales, due to be joined shortly by Cervinia, opening weekends, through most of October before full opening in November.
