Port Ainé at a glance

Port Ainé, part of Ski Pallars in the region of Pallars Sobirá is a lesser known option of Catalan’s skiing areas. The resort is in a privileged position, facing north and just below the peak of Orri (2,440m) which means it enjoys brilliant snow – some even claim the snow quality is the best in the whole of the Pyrenees. The pistes are all within the High Pyrenees Natural Park, and the resort is known for the spectacular views over the mountains.
