    Start Bolquère.

    Our trip begins in Bolquère, a small village perched high in the Pyrenees which boasts France's highest working railway station at 1593 metres. This part of the Pyrenees is close to the Spanish border and also has a proud Catalan heritage. Spanish and Catalan can be heard as much as French and even the road signs are in both Catalan and French.

    An introductory day refreshing skills on easy tracks around Bolquère and the forested area of Les Estanyols. Lunch will normally be taken at a café in Pyrenées 2000.

    Our first task will be to pick up our ski passes. For this you will need a passport sized photo. This gives us access to the full range of skiing in the area. Les Estanyols is an area close to Bolquère offering some easy trails to get us up and running. Lunch is usually taken in a café in the nearby resort of Pyrenees 2000.

    Skiing further afield, including le Col de la Llose.

    The extensive tracks at Les Estanyols mean we are likely to pay it another visit and try the delightful La Tête circuit which follows the river of the same name. There is also plenty of excellent skiing to be had at the Col de la Llose at an altitude of 1861m, with several routes available. A particular highlight here is to ski along the broad ridge with views to the Mediterranean on a clear day. Lunch spots will depend on our routes but The Refuge du Col del Torn at 1860m is a great place to enjoy the mountainscape and some traditional local food.
