Andorra-Ax Backcountry Week 2011

Yet another very snowy week – this time in the Pyrenees, with 6 days fresh track powder skiing around Ax Les Thermes and Andorra.

A special thanks to Debbie and Gary for providing transport, expert local knowledge and home-from-home accommodation in Perles.  We’ll definitely be back next year – this is a great region for day touring and off piste skiing in an ‘off the beaten track’ area with loads of potential in all conditions.

When it’s snowing, loads of local resorts with great terrain and hardly anyone skiing off piste = plenty of fresh tracks and when the weather’s good, great day touring on both the Andorran and French sides of the range.  With dropoffs available,  it’s also possible to traverse the range from one country to the other.
