FAQs: Splitboarding in Spain

What should I know about Splitboarding Spain?

The fourth largest country in Europe is also home to some of its most incredible mountain scenery. Sprawling over 505,990 square kilometers (195,360 square miles), Spain is home to some of the best splitboarding in Europe.

Among the top spots are the Pyrenees Mountains. Running along the northern border with France, many of the country’s tallest mountains are found in the range.

Heading to Val d’Aran and Carros de Foc are two of the most popular spots. The former boasts more than 150 kilometers (90 miles) of trails, leading down steep mountain slopes and into forested valleys. The latter sits within the stunning Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici National Park and boasts even more incredible splitboarding terrain.

Farther west, Picos de Europa National Park, in the Cantabrian Mout nains, is a great place to head out splitboarding as well. Enjoy stunning views over the wilderness of the Basque Country before skinning up rugged ridge lines and plunging down into steep powder bowls

Boasting thick forests, rugged mountain peaks and pristine valleys, Spain is a stunningly beautiful place to head for a splitboarding adventure. Head out into Spain’s rugged mountain wilderness in the winter and get a new perspective on the Iberian Peninsula’s incredible natural beauty.

Climb Pico Aneto

Rising to 3,404 meters (11,168 feet) in elevation, Pico Aneto is the third tallest mountain in Spain and the highest in the Spanish Pyrenees. It is also a prime target for splitboarding enthusiasts looking for a challenging climb, incredible panoramic views and exhilarating ride back down.

Miguel was a wonderful guide, we could not have found anyone better

The helicopter was a surprise and it was awesome, it was a great first time experience in the backcountry. Our guide, Roger, was really helpful and patient with us and we found really good snow.  The hiking up was especially tiring when it was really hot but the skiing was epic.
