The resort

Arinsal is in the Vallnord ski area and has an altitude of 2560m ensuring snowy peaks throughout the season. From gentle, open pistes for complete rookies, to huge powder bowls and tree-lined runs for experts, the area offers skiing and boarding landscapes for all levels. It has 40,000 square metres of freestyle terrain, with a half-pipe, rails, kickers, boxes and a designated chill-out space.

For complete novices or for those wanting some top tips to improve their snow skills, Vallnord offers an excellent ski and snowboard school, with English speaking instructors.

Connected by cable car to the neighbouring resort of Pal, the area is collectively known as Vallnord and is famed for its slopes, nightlife, and cheap prices.


Tickets with various flight, accommodation and wristband options can be purchased. Big Snow Packages are also available, which include return flights from Manchester and London Gatwick, transfers, seven nights accommodation and access to all the events from £399.

The accommodation and events wristband can also be purchased separately with accommodation from £170ppp, transfers £59pp, and an all events wristband is priced at £129.

The Big Snow Festival coaches depart regularly from Barcelona Airport between 12.15pm and 10.15pm on Sunday 14th March. Due to the time it takes to collect luggage and clear immigration, please do not book a transfer if the flight arrives after 9.30pm.

Departure transfers depart Arinsal for Barcelona Airport between 5am and 3.30pm on Sunday 21st March only. The transfer takes 4 hours and you should allow 2 hours for check in, therefore you should not book a transfer if the flight departs before 11am on Sunday 21st March.

For transfers on any other date or for any other airport than Barcelona, festival goers will need to make their own transfer arrangements.
