“The peaks of the Pyrenees are spectacular and the terrain here is wild,  endless and mostly untouched, this exciting new 4 day course will take us in search of the best snow and the most fun terrain”

4 days of exciting Freeride shred and exploration in the High peaks of the Pyrenees.

It is no secret that for the past few years the Pyrenees have been getting more early season snow than the Alps. The moist South Westerly airstreams coming in off the Atlantic, now increasingly common early season, greatly favor the peaks of the Southern Alps and even more so, the Pyrenees, bringing frequent and plentiful Snowfall.

Whilst not quite as high or numerous as some of their Northern cousins, the peaks of the Pyrenees are spectacular and the terrain here is wild,  endless and mostly untouched. Pyrenean ski resorts are mostly smaller, quieter and more remote than those of the Alps but the potential here, both on and off the piste is endless.

With an exciting new ‘flexible’ approach to where and what we ride this 4 day journey of Slackcountry Freeride exploration will take us in search of the best snow conditions and the most fun terrain, using the lifts for access whilst reserving the possibility of a quick Split here and there when and where needed.
