Ski touring in the Aran Valley
The Aran Valley is a great place for ski touring. We have designed three itineraries to ascend to three summits. Ideal for people who are already initiated in this activity. The itineraries are suitable for people with an average level in this activity. The itineraries will be made at a leisurely pace.We will carry light luggage as this is not a high route from refuge to refuge. We will sleep in the village of Salardú and every day we will make an ascent.The Aran Valley offers spectacular conditions for the practice of mountain skiing. The great snowfall and its orography, from smooth hillside to abrupt slopes, makes this region a perfect place for the practice of the ski touring. Even at the beginning of the season and when the conditions are bad in other areas, the valley offers good routes favoured by its snowfall, its forests and its gentle prairie mountains.PROGRAMME:Day 1.
