Backcountry Skiing in the Pyrenees

Personal log of a novice backcountry skier in his backyard

Loma Verde (Candanchú)

This valley is located at the back of the Candanchú ski resort. You don’t need to skin it up as you can access it from the top of the Tuca Blanca chair (altitude 2.300m). If the snow cover is good (and it can be very good as it faces full North) you can usually ski all the way to the bottom of the ski resort (some 700m), but the top 1/3 is the best part. I’ve already skied it, but I’m looking forward to spend more time there by accessing it by the chair, ski the first 1/3 and then skin up / ski down the different sides of the top bowl until it’ time to go home!!
