Pal Arinsal will invest 3 million euros in improvements for the 2019-20 season
The Comú de la Massana will make a contribution of 1.4 million euros to EMAP (Pal-Arinsal). This amount, added to the 1.6 contributed by the same resort, will be used for snowmaking and the improvement of the pistes.
Of the 3 million that will be invested this summer, 1.6 are contributed by the EMAP company and 1.4 are contributed by Comú de La Massana.
The Andorran domain has been ending the ski season with profit for seven years, so it can carry out an investment plan, in conjunction with the contribution made by the parish of La Massana, the sole owner of the company.
The commune of La Massana gave the green light last Friday to an extraordinary loan of 1.4 million euros to be contributed to EMAP (Pal-Arinsal). According to Andorran media reports, the public company that manages the Pal Arinsal station plans to invest a total of 3 million euros this summer to make improvements for the winter season.
The investment will focus in widening some pistes, on the food and beverage offer and on snowmaking. There will also be investment on the resort’s IT services, information systems, signalling, and management systems at the financial level. Works are expected to start in July.
For 7 seasons Pal Arinsal has generated profits every year and has the capacity to invest thanks to its own resources. Of the 3 million that will be invested this summer, 1.6 are contributed by the EMAP company and 1.4 are by Comú de La Massana , also the owner of the ski resort.
