Hidden between majestic mountains and enchanting valleys in Europe, there’s a small but fascinating country, that offers some of the best spots for winter sports: Andorra.

Located right at the heart of the Pyrenees, Andorra’s peaks will simply hypnotize you. And what a better way to unveil all its beauty, than ski touring across it!

Ski touring is one of the most enjoyable ways to explore a place. The nature of this activity allows us to combine the best skiing descents with hiking through magical places. Just skiing might be too restrictive, as you remain in the confinements of a ski resort. And hiking, may just be too hard during certain months of the year, when the snow has covered most of the land. Also, when we embark in a ski touring adventure, we get to discover wild and remote places that otherwise would be almost impossible to reach.

So ski touring, gives us the opportunity to truly enjoy both, exploration and descents. However, it requires certain knowledge beyond skiing. Therefore, I’ve designed this trip as an introductory course for those initiating in this marvellous activity.

During our ski course we’ll go over all the basics, such as:

  • Use, maintenance and repair of essential equipment
  • Elementary  snow science and the metamorphosis of the snow
  • Fundamental positions
  • Types of turns and perfecting descending techniques
  • Planification of snow descents
  • Descending techniques in steep and virgin snow
  • Risk prevention and what to do in case of an avalanche
  • Progression techniques and how to stop with skis

Please note that in order to join this course you need to be able to control your skis with basic turning techniques. And you need to be in a good physical condition, as well as have some experience trekking.

If you fit the requirements, don’t hesitate and send me a request. Let’s explore this wonderful winter paradise!
