Not specified


1 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec




This Val d'Aran avalanche course will give you the essential knowledge to enjoy snowed mountains safely.

Although many people think that going hiking or skiing on powder is just having fun, it can be dangerous too. This Avalanche course will teach you different techniques to analyze better the snow conditions. Please note that this course can only be taught in Spanish.

Because avalanches can happen under lots of conditions, this course will be oriented according to your interests. That's why I'll work with small groups and I'll shape the program for you.

This is fundamental course if you want to start going out into the wild. And this information should be the first you know, even before learning how to ski, climb or hike in the mountain.

The course will teach first how to analyze properly the snow conditions to understand the risk of avalanches. Then I'll show you how to search and find buried victims, use the transceiver, shovel and probe correctly and other protocols to follow if an avalanche occurs.

So please contact me to make this Val d'Aran avalanche course happen. And please specify any requests that you may have, so I can make the proper arrangements in advance.

And if you’d like to check out some of my other courses, please take a look at my Val d’Aran introductory alpine course or my 2-day Val d’Aran introductory off piste skiing course.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
