    Total freedom, is one of the ways one can describe freeride skiing. Unlike regular skiing, where you are limited to the confinements of a ski resort or a traced path, with freeride skiing, you can choose your own route. However, in order to practice this wonderful activity, you need the ideal conditions. And there isn’t a better place, than the peaks of Andorra, for this amazing sport!

    Andorra has a unique location as it lies in the Pyrenees between Spain and France. This is a small country yet, one of the most enchanting places in Europe. It is a true winter paradise! Here we’ll find virgin and steep snow, as well as incomparable powder snow. All of those features are essential for a great freeride trip.

    Due to the nature of freeride skiing, you need to be prepared to venture into wild and remote places. Hence, the objective of this course is to teach you all the basics for you to do so.

    During our course we will learn:

    • What essential gear you need to pack and how to use, maintain and repair it
    • How to interpret the weather and assess the stability of the snow and the environment
    • Risk assessment, protocols of security and what to do in case of an avalanche or an accident
    • The proper use of the avalanche transceivers and shovels
    • Elementary  snow science and the metamorphosis of the snow
    • Fundamental positions
    • Types of turns and perfecting descending techniques
    • Planification of snow descents
    • Descending techniques in steep and virgin snow
    • Security and strategy for group descents

    So don’t miss out the opportunity to join this winter adventure. Send me a request and let me guide you through the mountains of Andorra!

    What People are Saying about Jordi Sallés

     

    The tour hour was short for half day. We had expected longer one, though. So, maybe you should indicate 2.5 hours in your information. However, we really enjoyed the tour, and the tour guide Jordi was really nice person. He knows well about the mountain & the nature in Madriu valley. He taught us a lot of things. Thank you very much!!

    Jordi was just great, very helpful and supportive. He quickly analyzed our level and adapted the tour accordingly. He even offered to bring us to an other via ferrata nearby after the introduction tour. Great instructor and guide!
