The Aparthotel La Neu has apartments of 50 to 70 square metres each with daily cleaning, free Wi-fi, sheets and towels included, fully-equipped bathroom, microwave oven, and safety deposit box. The Aparthotel has its own gymnasium, bar, ski deposit, and children's play room.
Ordino-Arcalis consists of two valleys, Arcalis and La Coma. Thanks to its mainly north facing slopes and geographic situation, Arcalis has one of the best records of resorts in the Pyrenees for being able to offer the highest number of skiable days. The Pic d'Arcalis rises to a height of 2776m just above the highest lift, La Pleta, which reaches 1,620m. Queues are usually a rarity here due to its modern lift system.
There are only two black runs but they are both extremely difficult. If you enjoy a challenge you could try some of the off-piste which is very good in the Cercle de la Coma and around the Creussans where there are wide open spaces which would be excellent on one of the many powder days Arcalis enjoys.
The Bar les Portelles, with its large sun terraces, is a good sandwich stop where you can enjoy some of the best scenery in Andorra before dropping down into La Coma bowl to enjoy some of the most wide open skiing in Andorra. Arcalis also lays claim to one of the longest chairlifts in the Pyrenees, la Basera, a quad chair which takes only 6 minutes to climb 548.6m (1800ft).
