Except for local sector day-passes, all other standard lift pass options are full Vallnord area passes: covering all sectors at Pal-Arinsal (including the gondola
to/from Pal from/to La Massana), plus Arcalís
All passes are available for children (6–11 years old), youths (12–17 years old) and adults (18–64 years old):
09:00–13:00hrs or 13:00hrs–close;
and multiples thereof,
(the longer the duration, the cheaper the equivalent daily rate); and
covering the entire season for the whole Vallnord domain.
Inexpensive local-sector day-passes, solely for the conveyor-belt surface lifts in the beginners' zones
at both Pal and Arinsal base lodge levels, are also available.
Passes are free-of-charge for children under 6; prices for 6–11 year olds are approx. 25 per cent cheaper than those for adults; those for 12–17 year olds are approx. 12.5 per cent cheaper than those for adults.
To encourage the wearing of safety helmets, a small discount is also given on children's one-day passes if the child wears a helmet.
Passes for guests aged 65–70 years old are available at a much reduced daily rate; passes are free for the over 70s.
A photo is required only for individual passes with more than four day's duration. Proof of age is required at the time of purchase for age-related discounted passes.
If you are a non-skier, but wish to travel up to the base lodges
at Pal or Arinsal, you can purchase a ‘pedestrian pass’ for each journey on the gondolas from La Massana and Arinsal. There are no other ski lifts accessible to pedestrians; to join on-piste companions, the only real option is to meet up at Pal or Arinsal base lodge.
There is an infrequent bus service
from La Massana to Pal base lodge and, if you have your own vehicle, it is also possible to drive up to the base lodges at both Pal and Arinsal; you can also reach the on-piste ‘Far West’ restaurant
by driving up to the Coll de la Botella in Pal's Setúria sector.
