Ordino Arcalis ski resort is one of the most well-known ski resorts in Andorra and southern Europe. There are fewer kilometres of slopes compared to the other ski resorts, but there are many particularly unique aspects that make it the favourite place to ski and snowboard.

Furthermore, there are chairlifts, ski lifts, and a gondola lift to better access every part of the sector. 

The Ordino Arcalis resort guarantees a good quality ski. This is mainly because of its location, being located in the northern part of the country with a high altitude, that outpaces 2,500 metres multiple times in the season. Also, because of the high location, the temperature is ideal for preserving the snow throughout the whole season. It is, among other things, the main reason why the ski resort gained its popularity.
