THE MICROADVENTURE:

Our weekend micro-adventure proposal is located in the eastern Pyrenees, one of the most extensive, beautiful, and highest mountain ranges in Spain. The Pyrenees offer us a high mountain environment with very modest altitudes and difficulties around 3000m. Ancient glacial valleys, subalpine forests, and large alpine meadows will give us a great variety of landscapes on this snowshoeing route.

During our weekend adventure, you will not only learn how to navigate with snowshoes through the red pine forests and meadows but also how to use the DVA devices (avalanche beacon), shovel and probe, to read and understand the snow strata, and to better understand nature around us. All thanks to the workshops given by the AEGM certified mid-mountain guide. A unique and different experience awaits you; adventure, fun, and learning altogether.

The route has a pleasant character, for any hiker used to go out to the mountains, with the only difficulty of the positive slope (between 500 to 800m+). It is not necessary to have previous experience in snowshoeing or in the altitude at which the route will take place, just as it is not necessary to have the specific material for the route, we will provide it.

DAY 1:

Welcome to the group in the morning. We make the introductions and make sure that all members have the necessary material. Then we explain the operation and use of the snowshoes to get ready for the first excursion of the weekend. We will go into a forests area, to find different densities of snow, terrain, and landscapes. During the afternoon we will visit different corners of the mountains where we can not only enjoy the scenery but also perform different workshops on nivology and avalanches. You will learn how to use the avalanche search devices, very important devices to carry, and know how to use in the winter mountain. At the end of the afternoon, we will return to the refuge where we will have a briefing about the next day, play some board games, and have dinner.

DAY 2:

After an energetic breakfast at the shelter, we prepare to continue our route. If the weather allows us, our goal today will be a summit in the area. After taking the necessary photos we’ll head back to our vehicles.

The itinerary can be modified or be affected by meteorological factors, the state of the snow or the risk of avalanches, the physical condition of the members/group, or the decision of the guide.
