FREERIDE IN BAQUEIRA-BERET

Freeride day in Baqueira-Beret.

 We will meet quite early to catch the first lift up. According to the conditions of the snow, weather and group we will choose one itinerary or another among the many options that offer the great ski area. The most known descents are:

  • Montgarri, it gives the opportunity to experience snowmobiles on our way back to Beret’s parking lot,
  • Bagergue, really good run between trees to the small village of Bagergue,
  • Peulla, being quite far away from the main area of Baqueira, it is normally less frequented, therefore the snow is in great conditions.
  • All of them are big time worthwhile because of their beauty.

     We will ski as if there were no tomorrow. Get ready!

    Description

    Baqueira-Beret is the best place in the Pyrenees for Freeride. Its location is ideal. The constant depressions coming from the Atlantic bring big amounts of snowfalls during the whole winter, that’s why the quantity and quality of the snow is unrivalled the entire season. Thanks to the lifts and leaving the common slopes we can enjoy unknown spots out of reach of most people where we can get the most out of several descents in the same day.

    Skiing between trees, open fresh snow slopes, corridors, different slope runs, this is the key of Baqueira-Beret popularity: so many options to choose from and all them so good and enjoyable. You can’t miss the experience of the off-pistes.
