A 3-day ski touring ascent to Aneto (3404 m), the highest peak in the Pyrenees, and to Pico de Alba (3107 m), along with IFMGA certified mountain guide Roger.
I invite you to join me on a guided ski touring ascent to Aneto (3404 m), the highest peak in the Pyrenees. During this 3-day trip I will also take you to the Pico de Alba (3107 m) summit. Join me and get ready to ski down these fantastic mountains in the Spanish Pyrenees!
Aneto lies in the Posets-Maladeta Natural Park, in the Aragon Province. This beautiful mountain is part of La Maladeta Massif and it holds the largest glacier in the Pyrenees.
We will meet in the city of Benasque and from there we will skin up for 2 to 3 hours to the Renclusa Hut, where we will sleep that night.
On the second day, we will climb up Aneto. It will take us from 5 to 7 hours. From the summit, we will enjoy a breathtaking view of the Pyrenees mountains. Then we ski down to Aigualluts and Renclusa Hut, where we spend the night.
Finally, on the third day, we climb up Pico d’Alba and enjoy an amazing descent of 1350 meters.
So are you in for this great trip in the Spanish Pyrenees? Send me a request and we will start planning this ski touring trip to the roof of the Pyrenees together. I also offer a 2-day ski touring ascent to Aneto.

I love what I do and love to transmit my passion while guiding.
After touring the world fulfilling my dreams, I have put together all the knowledge gained and a strong background as a mountain guide to become one of the most versatile, dedicated and professional guides in the Pyrenees.
My resume has technical training in mountain medicine, snow studies, search and rescue complete training, meteorology and botany.
I spend the winters enjoying the unique snow conditions in the Aran Valley, as a ski touring and freeride Guide, and summers climbing the countless areas of excellent rock, either granite, limestone or conglomerate in the Pyrenees. I also spend a lot of time in Iceland during the summer guiding my friends and clients across these incredible landscapes.
While traveling the world, I make every effort to show the beauty of the landscapes, the quality of the rock and the best snow in the Pyrenees to everyone who wants to check them out.
Please get in touch with me if you want to discover the Pyrenees!

Absolutely brilliant trip - would high recommend Roger and Chur they are fantastic, responsive and extremely helpful people!
It\'s a long slog of a climb, but doable as long as you\'re reasonably fit (but you don\'t need to be an Olympic athlete). The views are stunning. The Puente (bridge) de Mahoma is mentally tough with steep drops either side and some uncomfortable climbs. I\'d strongly recommend using a local guide as they help you with the planning, kit and techniques, they share knowledge of the surrounding area that you wouldn\'t get otherwise and they help you over the more challenging stretches

If I had to describe the trip in 4 words : \'It was epic-ally awesome
The helicopter was a surprise and it was awesome, it was a great first time experience in the backcountry. Our guide, Roger, was really helpful and patient with us and we found really good snow. The hiking up was especially tiring when it was really hot but the skiing was epic.
Roger, our guide, really made the trip memorable for us. He had a challenge every day to plan the route according to the snow conditions, temperatures (it was quite warm), the skills and endurance of our kids and keeping it fun for all of us. It really showed that he put thought into planning each day and wanted to find the best route for us to enjoy the backcountry and get some good skiing! He knows the area so well and every day he planned was awesome. The helicopter trip. It was planned by Roger and something we never would have thought of doing for our children\'s first backcountry experience but it was absolutely the best. \"Double thumbs up\" according to Willy, our son. The location that Roger picked out for the skiing and the hotel, Bahns de Tredos, was perfect for being in the backcountry all day and then returning to the hotel for a delicious late lunch, thermal hot tub soak and then a gourmet dinner all in a hut/backcountry setting. We felt very spoiled!
