Are they quite reliable? If I get the 1530 bus back to Arinsal (due in at 1630), will I have time to go back up on the gondola to put my skis back in the lockers up there? What time does the gondola close?
Yes, usually they are always on time, however, we can't predict the traffic. If you are coming on a quiet week (January, March, April) it should be fine, however, during busier weeks such as half term or Christmas you can often find traffic jams in La Massana.
The gondola closes at 17:00 so you should have 30 minutes extra to get to the top.
Please, let me know if you have any other question,
