The Andorran ski resort of Vallnord has closed the 2012-13 winter season with 702,000 ski days sold, 3 percent more than in 2011-12, with 680,000 days, despite heavy snowfall forced him to close it for 8 days, and another 20 partially, in Arcalís sector, according to what its leaders said Tuesday.

The sectors of Massana, Arinsal and Pal registered an increase of 22 percent, while Arcalís suffered a decline of 30 percent due to the days which was closed because of heavy snow, on a course that started on December 1 and concluded on Sunday April 7.

Bittersweet and asymmetric are words that Martí Rafel uses, Vallnord CEO, in order to describe this ski season. Sweet because Arinsal, Pal Massana and recorded an increase in days open, but bitter thinking of Arcalis, which had to be closed for eight days.
