Description

Sierra Nevada is a mountain range that stretches about 75km in the region of Andalucia, Spain. This 1-day course is your chance to discover a fabulous area and learn the basic skills of ski touring. Come join me!

The altitude of the Sierra Nevada mountains guarantees top quality powder snow practically throughout the year. That is the reason why the area is perfect for ski touring even in spring!

My objective on this course is to teach you the basic techniques of ski touring: alpine ascent, powder snow descent, and the correct use of equipment. You need to be an intermediate skier, although ski touring and untracked terrain experience is not necessary. Also, keep in mind that it is mandatory to manage wedge technique and to know how to ski in blue pistes.

So, if you are up for this stunning course in one of the southernmost skiing areas in Europe, please contact me! 

If you are not a beginner but you still want to improve your ski touring skills, you can take a look my other course in this same area!
