In this 4-day program we will go ski touring in Mt. Perdido and Ordesa National Park, discovering a very different and unique landscape. Monte Perdido is the third highest peak in the Pyrenees, but the highest calcareous (limestone) mountain.
We will have a standard itinerary, but according to the level of the participants we can slightly change the activity every day. So this program is suitable both for those skiers who just have some experience in ski touring, but also for those looking for more challenging runs.
Day 1: Starting from Gavarnie, in France, during the first day we will go to Sarradets refuge. Sarradets is opened and fully serviced in spring, but if we go in winter we have to take our own food.
Day 2: We will do the crossing from France to Spain through the Brecha de Roland, a beautiful and iconic mountain pass. If we go for an easier option, we can go up and ski down from Taillon peak (3144m), and spend the night in Goriz refuge. If we want to do something more challenging we can go both for Taillon and the Casque peak (3006m), before going down to Goriz.
Day 3: From Goriz, we skin up and ski down Monte Perdido (3355m), and spend the night again in Góriz refuge. If we want a more challenging option, we can go up Monte Perdido and Torre de MArboré/Gavarnie (3009m).
Day 4: We return from Goriz to Gavarnie through Gabietos, closing a circular circuit.
I like this program because it offers different options for different levels. But you need some previous experience and an intermediate level of ski touring.
The itinerary is tentative, but I can adapt it according to the snow and weather conditions, and the client’s requirements.
The maximum amount per guide is 6 people.
So don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in discovering this beautiful region of the Pyrenees, ski touring in Mt. Perdido and Ordesa National Park. I’ll be glad to guide you there!
