Description

Winter mountaineering is a thrilling activity. It can also be a difficult activity as well. As a result, it is important to learn the fundamentals that are necessary for ensuring your winter mountaineering is safe, as well as successful. That is why I am glad to offer this full day, introductory level, winter mountaineering course in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of Spain.

The course will take place in an area in the mountains near the municipality of Lugros, in the province of Granada.

Much will be covered during this course and the focus will be on the basics, the fundamentals. Some examples of what you will learn includes how to properly use winter mountaineering equipment, such as ice axes and crampons. You will also learn how to properly move in snowy terrain with rackets and rods.

Along with the instruction, this trip will also be a lot of fun. That is because your lessons will not be taught in a classroom. Instead, they will be taught in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains. Thus giving you a chance to put what you’ve learned immediately into practice. The views in the mountains are also quite spectacular.

Participants on this trip should also be in good physical condition.

To join me on this full day course in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

After you’ve completed this course, I also offer a 2-day, level 2 course, which you can take here.

Since I was a kid I travelled around the hills and peaks of Sierra Nevada range in south Spain, going up and down the valleys that made me in love with the mountains world.

Steadily, I discovered other ranges of the Iberic peninsula such as the Pyrenees and Picos de Europa, and then I travelled to the peruvian Andes, the Amazonas jungle, the Moroccan Atlas...

Thanks to these experiences and two years of studying to become a professional mountain guide, I started a new project called Nevalia mountain guides.

I hope I can help you to make true your mountain dreams!

The trip was great. Unfortunately, due to very bad weather conditions, we were not able to climb to the top of the Toubkal

Our guide was actually Ruben. Alejandro was sick. Ruben was just great. Definitely 5 stars.

Our guide was changed on us last minute. Before the hike, I had missed the messages from the guide because the notifications went to a weird place in my email inbox. Because we messaged him late, he cancelled on us. I was worried we wouldn't be able to go on the hike at all. Luckily, we ended up going with a different guide, Victoria, who was lovely.

I really enjoyed the trip! Alejandro was a great guide. The only few things to work on are: -Alcazaba was not possible because of snow. I definitely understand this but it was not communicated until we were on the trail -Explore share was difficult as a third party to communicate with- It worked better once I got email working directly -I think the cost for the trip is high but if it goes to the guide and not explore-share that's one thing.. if a lot goes to explore-share I would prefer to find guides on my own
