The Mountaineering and Ski Touring course is held both in the Pyrenees (French / Spanish border near Andorre). It lasts 5 days.
It is a little taster of everything.
We "climb" rather than hike some impressive mountains in the Pyrenees and also undertake some easier ski tours. It is a good idea if you have skied before. For those who are looking for more advanced ski tours, contact us and we can put you together on a special course.
The area is a perfect location over the winter for all activities and it is relatively safe having no permanent glaciers or crevasses.
Led by high altitude mountaineer, Sean James this course is 5 days long with the possibility of a night spent out in the mountains.
A week long course with 5 days practical teaching whilst climbing the high mountains of the Pyrenees such as Pedraforca, Canigou, Carlit, Aneto, Pedrocomosa and many more.
Sean imparts his experiences of guiding over 15 – 8000m expeditions, including 4 times on Everest.
