Description

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!

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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
