Sierra Nevada - snow activity holidays & tours
"We really enjoyed the week.It was pretty tough but very worthwhile.
We were both keen to try ski mountaineering and you provided us with a
great introduction." Allan Hughes & Jim Beattie, Glasgow
Ski Touring & Backcountry Skiing
The ultimate way to travel in the mountains! With good snowsure conditions from December to May, the Sierra Nevada is one of Europe's best areas to learn the basics of travelling through the high mountains on skis. It is backcountry skiing at its finest!
We run both beginners courses and also trips for the more experienced.
The course is suitable for those with some previous on piste experience who are also strong mountain walkers. We can provide skies, skins and poles as part of the holiday cost. We also run trips for those who have tried ski mountaineering before but who wish to expand their skills and experience.

During the winter months snow is in abundance; and with great trails offering
wonderful scenery, snowshoers will find this a wonderful destination.
Moreover, snowshoers of every level of skill and experience will find
plenty of trails to meet their desires and needs. If youve never tried it....you should! Its good fun and very easy to learn.
From high start points to the north of the Veleta (3394 m) peak we have
easy access to high snow bowls where the basics can be learnt. After the
brief learning curve we can then ascend some simple peaks. Longer tours
can be found to the south of the range, including the highest peak in
mainland Spain...Mulhacen (3483 m). There are some fantasic descents through
the forests above Capileira!
For Snowboarders, now there is a great way to enjoy backcountry touring in the winter mountains! In the Sierra Nevada we have an ideal area to split-board. With no glaciers to worry about, good snowsure conditions, and great weather from December to May, the Sierra Nevada is one of Europe's best areas to learn the basics of travelling through the high mountains on a splitboard.
