Join Jesús, local AEGM-UIMLA Mountain Leader, on an amazing 3-day adventure in the spanish Sierra Nevada, where you’ll learn all the fundamental techques of ski touring and mountain safety.

The Sierra Nevada is a stunning mountain range in the southern spanish region of Andalusia which, aside from being uniquely located near the Mediterranean Sea, is also home to the highest peaks in Western Europe outside of the Alps, many of these well above 3,000m in height.

Although a lot of people choose to ski at the Sierra Nevada Ski Resort, this National Park offers enormous amounts of pristine skiable terrain. And the best way to discover and explore the wilder side of this amazing range, with its wide valleys, pristine snow covered flanks and stunning peaks, is by ski touring! From December to May the Sierrra Nevada National Park can be traversed on skis, the very best period being early spring due to the milder weather conditions and the perfect consistency and uniformity of the snow.

On this introductory course we will discover how ski touring gives us the opportunity to fully experience the beauty of a mountain environment, enjoying the silence and pristine untouched snow well away from the crowds of tourists. We will also be learning key safety procedures such as basic high mountain safety and avalanche rescue techniques to ensure we are prepared and know what to do in the event of an emergency in the mountains.

Request to book this trip now and I’ll ensure every details of this course is taken care of, so you can have a memorable introduction to ski touring in the beautiful Sierra Nevada National Park and take all of this knowledge back with you for your future mountain adventures!

About the Guide

 
 

AEGM-UIMLA Guide from Spain

I was born and always lived in the Alpujarra Region and Sierra Nevada. My passion for those mountains drove me towards mountain guiding, and I've been doing so since 1989.

I can guide you in summit ascents, ski touring and mountaineering, hiking around the villages in Alpujarra, or canyoning.
