The most remote area of slopes in Andorra, tucked away at the head of a long valley. The variety of the terrain at Arcalis is greater than in most of the main resorts, the slopes are usually deserted except at weekends (when locals pour in), and the snow is usually the best you will find. It provides excellent intermediate and beginner terrain, but of all Andorra's resorts it has the most to offer experts, including lots of off-piste between the marked runs. Thanks to this expert level terrain, the resort has played host to the Freeride World Tour on the Basser Nerge. It also has among the best snow record in Andorra, giving it the one of the longest season in the Pyrenees.
There is no accommodation at the mountain, just a day lodge and a lot of car parking, but buildings are now springing up along the Vall d'Ordino leading up to it. Buses are not frequent. Despite this, It makes a worthwhile day trip, particularly from Arinsal and Pal.
