Ski touring in the high mountains of the Pyrenees requires the confidence and ability to ski in all conditions from deep fresh powder to icy slopes. A knowledge of rope work and abseiling would also be useful.

The final itinerary for this ski touring/ski mountaineering adventure will be dependent on snow and weather conditions at the time.

There, you’ll remove your skis and have a short abseil which takes you down onto the wide glacier slopes. You’ll then put your skis back on and head across to the Coll de Coronas (3200m alt).
Crampons will replace your skis for the ‘mixed’ rocky arete known as Mohamed’s Stairway before the final climb up to the summit of Aneto (3403m alt). The descent route back to the Hotel de Benasque is via the Barrancs valley.
