FREERIDING

THE ESSENCE OF SLIDING THROUGH THE SNOW

At Telemark Sierra Nevada, we have the best-qualified Mountain Guides and qualified instructors of alpine skiing or snowboarding.

The powder snow in winter is very good for freeriding, but the spring snow in Sierra Nevada is the best in Europe for this type of skiing.

Mid-week course

Monday to Friday.
3 hours a day for 4 days learning the techniques of skiing in the wild mountain. It includes on-piste practices to apply them after in the snow without stepping.

FREERIDING ITINERARIES

The Sierra Nevada Station offers multiple possibilities for Freeriding adventures.

  • Depending on the time of day and the time of year, there is always a slope in perfect conditions for sliding down it.

  • You always climb up them in the lifts.

  • We dive into a remote valley, but we always end up in a chairlift or a cable car.

Hire a Guide to take you through the corners of the Sierra for hours, half a day or a full day.

FREERIDING EXCURSIONS

Aimed at Skiers or Snowboarders who have at least a medium level, these excursions involve Descents towards other valleys out of the domain of the Sierra Nevada Station. We always depart from the highest peak. You do not need to climb on foot or with skis, they only involve descents.

At the end of the descent into the snow limit, you have to take a short walk until you reach the support vehicles.

Sometimes mules are used to load the equipment (skis, boards and boots) on the edge of the snow and thus make the ride even more pleasant.
