Highlights

  • Enjoy a 2-day, level 2 winter mountaineering course in the Sierra Nevada.

  • Learn many important techniques, from self arresting to building a bivouac.

  • Practice what you've learned in the mountains themselves.

Description

For 2 days I would like to teach you a number of important winter mountaineering skills. Furthermore, I would like to teach you those skills in the amazing Sierra Nevada Mountains, near Lugros, in the Spanish province of Granada.

This level 2 course is perfect for people who love mountaineering. The course will help you improve upon the skills you already have, while also giving you the chance to learn some new ones. Ultimately, this 2-day course will provide a lot of useful instruction that you can use in future climbing expeditions.

This course will cover several important aspects of winter mountaineering. You will learn about equipment use, including crampons and ice axes. You will learn about identifying different types of snow, which is important for avalanche safety. And, you will learn about descending techniques, self-arresting techniques, as well as how to make a bivouac in the snow.

It is important that participants on this trip are in good physical condition.

The more you learn about winter mountaineering, the better at it you will become. And I believe at the conclusion of this 2 day, level 2 course, you will learn a great deal of important skills and techniques. To participate in this course, just send me a request.  I look forward to guiding you.

You can take the introductory, level 1 version of this course in the Sierra Nevada Mountains here.

Accommodation

There are comfortable accommodation options in Lugros that I would be happy to recommend to you.

About the guide

UIMLA Mountain Leader | AEGM Tour guide Mountain / Mountain Leader Sports Technician

Since I was a kid I travelled around the hills and peaks of Sierra Nevada range in south Spain, going up and down the valleys that made me in love with the mountains world.

Steadily, I discovered other ranges of the Iberic peninsula such as the Pyrenees and Picos de Europa, and then I travelled to the peruvian Andes, the Amazonas jungle, the Moroccan Atlas...

Thanks to these experiences and two years of studying to become a professional mountain guide, I started a new project called Nevalia mountain guides.

I hope I can help you to make true your mountain dreams!
