Description

Join me on this trip and enjoy the best snow in Pyrenees! Four days of backcountry ski touring, skiing down to Banhs de Tredós Thermal Hut.

Comfortable services, excellent traditional food and thermal pots make this thermal hut in Val d'Aran the best place to recover and relax.

I particularly like bringing my friends and clients on this trip because we have the chance to enjoy the best snow in the Pyrenees. Besides, we can go for the best descents based on each day's conditions. And finally, we can relax in the thermal pots of Banhs de Tredós after long days of skiing! The traditional food of Val d'Aran, the most authentic valley in Pyrenees, doesn't hurt either.

Depending on the conditions, on the first day we might climb one of the most classic peaks in Val d'Aran: Tuc de la Salama (2,485m). The descent from the top is amazing! On another day, we may go for the Tuc de Sendrosa (2,706m) in Valle de Varradós. On the way up, we'll enjoy wonderful views of Aneto, the highest peak in the Pyrenees.

Heli-skiing and heli-lift are also available in the area, so don't hesitate to ask if you'd like me to arrange it for you (not included in the price).

This program sounds like a good idea? Check out this family's experience!

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!

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!

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.
