Camping out in the mountains is not always for those long summer days. Want to try out camping in the snow clad mountains of the Sierra Nevada. With careful planning and foresight great experiences are to be had during the winter months. We recently had a client who wanted to try out camping in the snow clad mountains of the Sierra Nevada.

After fresh snows the Snowshoeing in the Alpujarras region of Andalucia is a superb experience With the first major snows of the year falling over Christmas it gave Ian Tupman chance to get his snowshoes out of the cupboard and enjoy the delights of a section of the GR240 Sulayr long distance path above Capileira.
Easy access in four wheel drive vehicle to the Hoya del Portillo, above the Alpujarras village of Capileira.
In May we entertained best selling UK outdoor magazine, Trail. They had never visited the Sierra Nevada. Guess what? They loved it What could we show them in just 2.5 days in the Sierra Nevada though? We didn’t want to show them the usual busy slopes of Mulhacén or Veleta. Wild and remote, with plenty of variety seemed to fit the bill. We decided and completed the following itinerary.

A hard snowshoeing trek to and from the Poqueira hut in Spain’s Sierra Nevada mountains in difficult snow conditions Recollections of two days hard trekking to and from the Poqueira hut in Spain’s Sierra Nevada mountains. Difficult snow conditions and at times blizzard conditions made it an epic and, at times, very testing journey.
