Ski Touring Routes

If you like mountains and skiing but you want new experiences, we suggest that you try ski touring or skimountain, one of the most complete sports. Also you´ll know Sierra Nevada from another perspective away slopes and crowds, it is an activity linked to nature that unites skiing and mountaineering and allows graceful progress on snow all mountain lovers.

To test this discipline do not need a high level of skiing but you need to go down different types of snow.

When skiers have an advanced level of Alpine ski can make ascents and descents backcountry by land unprepared.

Some recommendations:

  • If you wear a lot of time skiing we recommend you to try one day ski touring. You´ll have to rent the equipment but you won´t pay ski pass (forfait).
  • It is advisable to practice with a teacher, if you decide to join us we will explain the basic technique and some tips on weather, snow science and safety. With it you´ll may know the mountain best.
  • Clothing:  It is recommended to bring thermal shirt, coat or primaloft pen and waterproof jacket with double or triple membrane (innerplus, goretex, etc.).  Also take a pair of mountain or a thermal mesh and waterproof trousers. These garments allow us to take shelter or take off clothes to better adapt to environmental conditions.
