Description

Sierra de Gredos is a unique place in the central area of Spain. Most of the year it offers some of the prettiest sceneries in the country. However, it is during winter that this wild and beautiful land turns into a true paradise for those who love winter sports.

Join me on this ski tour adventure in the Sierra de Gredos. Over a period of three days, I’ll take you to some of the most breathtaking spots in Spain. Also, this part of the country is not so famous, so most of it remains wild and almost pristine. Thus you’ll feel like this whole place is just for you to discover!

Here you’ll find exceptional ski touring routes that will simply take you breath away. Moreover, due to the unique location of Sierra de Gredos, it offers some of the best snow all throughout March and April. And, it has unbelievable summits, that will give you the most thrilling descents you could ask for.

The itinerary I suggest follows Hoyos del Espino. After exploring this amazing place, we’ll head towards the summit of La Mira. From there, nothing more than fresh snow and mesmerizing views await for you. Then, on our second day we’ll ski tour towards Morezón. Upon reaching the summit of Morezón, we’ll get exciting descents and more incredible views. Finally, we’ll spend that night in the Laguna Grande Hut, a charming mountain hut where, we’ll get to rest and share our stories. To end our journey we’ll have two options, we could reach the summit of Almanzor or climb La Galana. Whichever option we choose, we’ll get the most fun ski touring experience.

If you want to join this ski touring adventure, don’t hesitate and send me a request. I promise it will be an amazing experience.

Looking for a summer adventure? I also guide this 2-days scrambling trip in Sierra de Gredos too.

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Spain

I´ve climbed the most classical peaks in my country and in the Alps, and participated in trips and expeditions to iconic mountaineering destinations, such as Patagonia, the Himalayas, Yosemite, the Andes, Caucasus, Greenland, Africa and Alaska.

I’m happy cause I achieved what I always dreamed of as a child, and thought it was impossible: to live by and for the mountains.

I like to guide clients all around the world, but also to teach and work as an instructor, offering climbing and mountaineering courses.

I’m the former Director of Studies of Benasque’s Mountaineering School, and I’m now the Technical Director of Gredos Alpine School.

Starting as Guide assistant y ended up forming professional mountaineers. And in between, many years of routes, walls, summits, and thousands of kilometers to achieve the highest mountain guide certification, and make my dream come true.
