Andorra

BASI is delighted to be heading back to this beautiful part of Europe. There has been heavy investment in both tourism infrastructure and snowsports facilities in Andorra. With direct flights to both Toulouse and Barcelona and a range of affordable accommodation options in both Soldeu and Arinsal, we hope that Members will enjoy returning to the Principality.

The Skiing in Andorra is the best in the Pyrenees. Toulouse in the south of France lies 140kms to the north while Barcelona, on Spain's east coast, is 180kms to the east. This tiny mountain state boasts over 60 peaks of 2500m or more and has 5 main snowsport areas, of which Pas de la Casa, on its eastern border with France, is the largest; the neighbouring resort of Soldeu-El Tarter is where our course will be based.

Arinsal

The Vallnord area consists of 2 resorts in the tax free principality of Andorra. These are Pal, and Arinsal. Arcalis is another resort in this side of the valley but since 2019 is on a separate pass from Vallnord. However please note that no training for the instructor courses will take place in Arcalis, you will be training in Arinsal and Pal.  The main village where everyone will be based is Arinsal.  The low tax and duty free status of Andorra has always made it an affordable destination where you can still have a pint after a day on the hill without breaking the bank. Arinsal is no exception and is the most cost effective resort in Andorra.

COVID UPDATE: Please note that when walking around on the streets in Andorra, masks are compulsory and not just in shops, bars or restaurants.
