Description

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.

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
