Description

Discover the scenic and wild backcountry of Baqueira Beret, in the heart of the Spanish Pyrenees, with an off-piste skiing tour, for one or several days. Baqueira is the largest and most popular ski resort in Spain. It is located in the Aran Valley and Àneu Valley, in the extreme northwest of Catalonia.

I know this area like the back of my hand, so I will take you to explore the wilder side of this area and the most amazing off-piste runs. Baqueira offers from open bowls and steep faces to lush tree runs, with ideal snow conditions.

This trip will take us about 7,5 hours and it is aimed to skiers of intermediate level. Depending on your previous experience and wishes, we will find the best spots for you to enjoy a great off-piste skiing experience in the Pyrenees.  The highest peak in the resort reaches 2,510 meters.

Baqueira is a modern resort with a combination of Spanish and French influences. Once away from the crowds, we will enjoy long descents from about 1,400 meters from the highest point in the area, skiing on open slopes, exciting corridors, gullies and forested sections.

I will also take you to the great bowls of Ruda and Montgarri for epic descents. The unique mixture of pristine natural beauty and remoteness make Baqueira a favorite among celebrities looking for the thrill of skiing and the peace of the mountains.

After exciting runs and descents, we will take a break for a picnic in a stunning spot. We will recover our energy to hit the slopes again, skiing on remote hidden places in the mountains.

If you want to join me on this off-piste skiing tour in Baqueira, don’t hesitate to contact me. Just book your trip and get ready for an exciting skiing tour in the Spanish Pyrenees.

About the guide

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!

Trip of a lifetime. As with all things mountains, things didn’t go exactly according to plan, weather forced changes, us tired and slow clients forced changes and roger handled these in stride and adjusted the plans seamlessly. He knew when to push and when to back off. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the mountains, history and the local plants and wildlife. I had high expectations for the trip and it was even better than I had imagined, if you’re thinking of doing a trip with Roger, I highly recommend him as a guide in whichever discipline you prefer.

Awesome trip! Thanks to Roger for guiding me to the summit on a really extreme day of wind and rain. Unique and epic day out on the mountain. Also thanks to Maca at Explore Share for helping with the booking to ensure everything went smoothly, especially during these uncertain times. Great service!

It's a long slog of a climb, but doable as long as you're reasonably fit (but you don't need to be an Olympic athlete). The views are stunning. The Puente (bridge) de Mahoma is mentally tough with steep drops either side and some uncomfortable climbs. I'd strongly recommend using a local guide as they help you with the planning, kit and techniques, they share knowledge of the surrounding area that you wouldn't get otherwise and they help you over the more challenging stretches

We had a very good trip — thank you!   Roger was really a great guide and we were very pleased working with Nacho as well.  The itinerary went well and Roger did a good job adjusting the itinerary as needed. Thanks again!

The helicopter was a surprise and it was awesome, it was a great first time experience in the backcountry. Our guide, Roger, was really helpful and patient with us and we found really good snow.  The hiking up was especially tiring when it was really hot but the skiing was epic.

Roger, our guide, really made the trip memorable for us. He had a challenge every day to plan the route according to the snow conditions, temperatures (it was quite warm), the skills and endurance of our kids and keeping it fun for all of us. It really showed that he put thought into planning each day and wanted to find the best route for us to enjoy the backcountry and get some good skiing!  He knows the area so well and every day he planned was awesome. The helicopter trip. It was planned by Roger and something we never would have thought of doing for our children's first backcountry experience but it was absolutely the best. "Double thumbs up" according to Willy, our son. The location that Roger picked out for the skiing and the hotel, Bahns de Tredos, was perfect for being in the backcountry all day and then returning to the hotel for a delicious late lunch, thermal hot tub soak and then a gourmet dinner all in a hut/backcountry setting.  We felt very spoiled!

Roger has the 3Ps, Passionate, Professional and Prudent. I did tour skiing in the Pyrenees (Beciver 2660 m) and the tour was amazing. He adapted his rhythm to the rhythm of the group and he is prudent something that I really appreciate. Going up was hard but then once you get to the top you enjoy the view and you forgot your name. I would totally recommend him. Is not that easy to find trustful guides. He is your man!!!
