A perfect ski touring trip in the Prynees. For intrepid and fit skiers who'd like to discover Europe off the beaten-path, Spain has the perfect surprises in store! Steep runs, cold, deep snow, stunning peaks and views, and huts you won't want to leave.
3 March - 9 March
Join BBE in Spain for an itinerary handmade by our staff to enjoy a beautiful and historic area tucked away in the Pyrenees. Just two and a half hours from Toulouse lies the picturesque Aran Valley, home of Spain's largest ski resort. Val D'Aran is unique in that it faces north, turning its back to Spain and gazing towards France. This means snow, and lots of it, all season long.
After a quick warm up in the Baqueira-Beret ski station and its sidecountry, we enjoy four days of hut-to-hut ski touring with varying options for summits, couloirs, and mountain passes. With two guides on the trip, ambitious skiers can head for harder lines, conditions allowing. Adding cozy accomodations to a mouthwatering local cuisine, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience the hospitality of the Aranese people, the valley's centuries-old alpine villages and Romanesque churches dating from the XIII Century, as well as its system of mountain huts just waiting to be discovered. For those with the legs, add our Monte Aneto Extension to summit and ski the highest peak of all the Pyrenees!
