Ordino Arcalis Ski Resort Andorra

Ordino Arcalís ski resort is the smallest in Andorra for piste trails but has a huge amount of freeride terrain & routes for the adventurous - whether a beginner or expert. This is the place to come in Andorra to ski unsullied powder & experience the best the mountains can offer. Sounds perfect for Powderhounds.

While we wait to visit the resort, check out the Ordino Arcalís ski trail map here & the freeride zones map here.

Where is Ordino Arcalis Andorra?

The Ordino Arcalis ski resort is in the delightful mountain principality of Andorra, only 22km (30min) north by road from the capital, Andorra la Vella. The nearest towns to the ski resort are El Serrat (6km down the road) & the resort's namesake Ordino, 14km from the resort base area.

The best gateway airports are Barcelona (BCN) in Spain (230km & over 3hr drive to the south) or Toulouse (TLS) in France (212km & over 3hr drive to the north). Public transport to the small nation is not great, so rental car or private transfers are generally the way to go. See the Andorra overview page for the best ways to get there.

Ordino Arcalis Accommodation

The nearest town to the ski resort is El Serrat, less than 10 min drive from the ski resort base. El Serrat provides the bulk of the local accommodation.

Given the small proportions of Andorra, it lends itself to a single base ski safari. Staying in the capital of Andorra La Vella and driving to a new ski resort every day makes a lot of sense. The two other ski areas in Andorra, the huge Grandvalira & Pal Arinsal are closer to the capital than Ordino Arcalis.

The Powderhounds were hoping to review Ordino Arcalis in early 2019. Unfortunately, an up & down season in the Pyrenees, plus other powder priorities in the Alps, meant we didn't make it. We will definitely visit in season 2019/20.
