Description

Join me on this trip in the Pyrenees. Explore  Val d’aran or the Benasque Valley on this one or multiple days splitboarding adventure.

This is a trip with an open itinerary.  This means you can choose the amount of time you wish to spend here, and the spots you want to explore.

I generally recommend to begin in Val d’Aran, the north face of the Pyrenees. Due to the large amount of snow it offers, it is a perfect place to start our adventure. But we can also start in Benasque, another ideal place for splitboarding.

Also, the north and the south face of Aneto, the highest mountain in the Pyrenees, are an amazing option. They combine an incredible ascent of a ridge, and a thrilling descent, where we can snowboard down different couloirs. And, depending on your schedule, we could explore the Natural Park of Posets-Maladeta, splitboarding from refuge to refuge.

So, since there are many options to choose from, what I like to do is taking into careful consideration your previous experience and skill level before departing. I also consider the amount of time you wish to spend in this magical place. Therefore, everything will be carefully planned, to maximize your time here!

If you are an advanced snowboarder, we can choose from some of my favorite spots, where you’ll test your skills. But, if you are new to this great sport, I can take you to some places with more moderate descents so you can practice. Either way, the views you’ll get, the great ascents and fun descents, will leave you wanting more.

Are you curious about this trip? Send me a request. I promise you will have an amazing time splitboarding in the Pyrenees. But, if you want something totally different, I also guide this week of rock climbing in Catalonia.

About the guide

The story begins when your parents put you the skis when you are still wearing diapers, when you discover every summer the lakes of the Pyrenees, and after that you start going for the summits. When climbing and the feeling of freedom that comes with it gets you hooked, and there's nothing you can do about it.

It continues when you choose your career following the name: Technical Mountain Engineering, in Lleida, close to the Pyrenees, and you start working as a ski instructor during weekends. And year after year, trip after trip, run after run, you start getting together with young mountaineers, and closer to the formation as a mountain guide.

Expeditions, trips, some award and the constant formation and evolution are what built this long journey, which allows me to share the world that I love with others. And thanks to the works as a guide I can enjoy everything: the great moments that the mountain gave me, in the snow, rock or ice, and above all the moving feeling of realizing how small we are in the immensity of the summits.

Had a wonderful week with Miriam in the beautiful Catalonia! Miriam was a fantastic guide and was very good at keeping everything safe, fun and sufficiently challenging. I only had minor experience with rock climbing prior to this trip and by the end of it I felt comfortable being lead on multi-pitch routes. I was very impressed by the beauty and diversity of Catalonia. In just a few hours of driving could the whole landscape can change completely. A perfect place for trying different rock types and to just enjoy the spectacular views!

Climbing in Catalonia was filled with a lot of sends and copious amounts of laughter. Mirium is a bad ass woman guide!! She is simply amazing! I had a wonderful time checking out diff crags in Catalonia and would def recommend this trip. If you want to explore diff crags in Catalonia this is for you!! Mirium worked around my climbing ability and recommended climbs that was fun but challenging at the same time. I had an amazing time and I loved Mirium as my guide!!

Miriam was a fantastic guide for me, and I felt completely safe with her. We had an amazing time climbing over two days, and she was patient, kind, and energetic. Go Miriam, keep climbing always! Also, Miriam is one of the few women guides in Spain, and I felt great about supporting her. Ladies - let's help each other continue to build our networks and businesses by investing in each other.

Miriam was the best guide I could have asked for. I did the 1 week Rock Climbing in Catalonia and had a fantastic time! Miriam is friendly, fun and supportive. She catered the trip to my abilities and I am so glad I went off the beaten track and decided to do this trip as I saw a beautiful side of Spain that I had never seen before. Thanks Miriam!
