A basic, but cosy, old mountain refuge; popular with station personnel/instructors and often packed at lunchtime. Overlooking the central beginners' zone
at the far side of the main lower slopes at Arinsal's Comallempla 1950 base area
The ground floor restaurant offers a snack menu and a selection of set-course menus, fresh meats grilled to order, plus some salads.
The rustic café-bar on the upper floor offers a full bar service and snacks, plus it has its own small roof terrace.
The busy L'Escola beginners' area snowfield
is directly in front of the main ground-floor piste-side terrace; experienced riders can exit the area by carefully gliding down this slope to reach the short El Cortal chairlift
which runs behind the Refugi building, this saves you from having to skate/walk across the beginners' zone
in order to reach the base lodge and/or the main ski lifts.
