Description

Choosing the Pyrenees for a ski touring trip is an interesting alternative for those skiers who prefer to avoid the crowds of the Alps. Its Panticosa-Vignemale is an amazing high route for hut-to-hut ski touring. In this 5-day tour you can explore this area under expert guidance.

The Pyrenees is a range of mountains forming a natural border between Spain and France. It reaches a height of 3,404 metres at the peak of Aneto and extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the Bay of Biscay.

We will start from Panticosa, located in the province of Huesca, Aragon, Spain. Every day we will climb to different summits. After a short rest and a light lunch, we’ll ski down on untracked powder slopes. By the end of the day, we will eat and rest in warm and charming huts of the area, surrounded by a wonderful natural scenery. .

The Pyrenees offer a huge terrain for the ski tourer, with hundreds of peaks and excellent snow conditions. In this trip we’ll trace magnificent mountain skiing tracks around Serrato (2,800m), Tebarray (2,900m), La Gran Facha (3,006m), and Col des Mulets (2,590m).

Away from the crowds, we will ski having views of wonderful lakes, valleys, forests, granitic rock spurs and steep peaks. Here it will be easy to find ourselves in complete loneliness enjoying some unique natural landscapes.

If you’re decided to live a once in a lifetime ski touring experience, please contact me! I’ll be glad to guide you along the powder slopes of the Pyrenees!

And if you want to ski in the Pyrenees but prefer being closer to a ski resort, you should try my Off-piste skiing course in Piau Engaly.

Excellent experience! Martin is a real expert guide and he managed to adapt the program even when the snow conditions were poor so that we still got to do everything we wanted. Very honest, reliable, and friendly guide. He's very education focussed so we came away from the holiday with a lot of new skills as well. Outstanding trip.
