PRIVATE SKI TOUR PYRENEES

PRIVATE SKI TOUR (WEEK / WEEKEND)

Two people, customised itineraries each day

READY TO SKI ?

Ski touring or ski mountaineering takes you off the groomed slopes and into the big white valleys where others don’t much go. If you enjoy walking in summer, can ski, and yearn to lose the ski lift queues, then this is the sport for you. Snow conditions range from perfect to challenging, and that is all part of the experience. This introductory week gives you the skills you need to enter the world of ski touring, an overview of the equipment and techniques required, teaches you about avalanche safety and how to use your transceiver, and, last but not least, provides some great off-piste skiing. The Pyrenees is an excellent place to learn and improve your skills, opening you up to a new world of possibilities.

Or looking for a warm up weekend before a longer tour? Or only a short break is possible? From just two people we can put together a ski touring weekend to suit your level. Ryan Air flies directly from Stansted to Lourdes airport every Saturday morning, returning every Tuesday. For an extra day or two on the slopes catch the overnight sleeper train and arrive at 9am Saturday in Lourdes. Your return will have you at London St Pancras at 10:40am Tuesday morning.
