ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
During this trip, you'll spend six full days with mountain guides, and experience two spectacular heli drops to help you seek out the perfect snow conditions. These heli drops will be carried out on the days with the most suitable conditions, and this will be decided by your guides in resort. This trip is aimed at Advanced (Purple) and Expert (Gold) off piste skiers. If you are unsure of your ski level please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week, you will receive an updated grading from your guide or Ski Club Rep.
Your 7 night stay will be at the recently refurbished 4* Montarto Hotel, on a half board basis and in single occupancy rooms. With easy access to the ski station the hotel is based at the foot of the slopes. Enjoy the hotel spa, along with a wine/après-ski bar and heated indoor swimming pool after a full day’s skiing.
This holiday includes both your flights and transfers. The flights are with British Airways and depart from London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 to Toulouse. Ski carriage is payable at the airport only and cannot be pre-booked. Your Ski Club Rep will coordinate the coach transfer from the airport, so please look out for them in the main arrivals hall – they will be wearing their blue Ski Club jacket. Transfers to and from resort will take approximately two and a half hours.
If these travel arrangements are not convenient, you may be eligible to organise your own travel and receive a nominal discount from the holiday cost. Furthermore, if you can find alternative flights that coincide with our flight times then you can meet the group at the airport and take our transfer to resort. Please contact the Freshtracks office on 020 8410 2022 in order to discuss this further.
Spain conjures up images of sun and sea for many people, but perhaps we should start thinking of sun and ski, because the lesser-known Spanish Pyrenees are full of exciting off piste opportunities. The sophisticated resort of Baqueira Beret comes with a regal recommendation, as the Spanish royal family have been known to favour its slopes. If you’d like to fill your holiday with challenging backcountry exploration, amazing tree runs and sample some après tapas bars, then Baqueira is the perfect destination. For more information on Baqueira/Beret, please visit the Baqueira/Beret Resort Page.
We recommend hiring from Kabi Mountain Guides, who have an excellent range of equipment in resort.
