Posets- Perdiguero Ski Mountaineering Traverse

Perhaps overshadowed by its neighbour route Carros de Foc, or by the busy ascent to Aneto, Posets tour is a less know route with skis. A magnificent high-mountain journey with an atmosphere that has little to envy to the ski tours in the Alps.

And, if as a plus to circle Posets, you ascent to the summit, bag Pico de Chistau summit as well, and you also ascent to the other colossus in the area, the Perdiguero, you can take home one of the best Ski Touring Routes in the Pyrenees.

The journey is physically hard, but technically grateful. If time or fatigue does not allow us to ascend to the proposed peaks, these can be easily avoided, doing the days shorter and more affordable.

If you are not sure whether with your experience, fitness and ski level you can carry out this challenge, contact us. We will guide you with the honesty that characterises us.
