Snow, mountain, sport … These are three of the elements that make the Andorra Skimo, one of the most anticipated events of the season.
The next 24 and 25 of February, the best mountain skiing professionals, as well as the most motivated fans, will be able to participate in this meeting.
The details of the event
The Andorra Skimo is a long-distance journey that aims to travel a part of the country through its three ski resorts. It is practiced in teams of 2 or 3 people who must overcome various stages practicing mountain skiing.
In the past 2 editions, this event only had one category: the Skimo6, but this year the organizers have created a harder and more extended version of it: the Skimo10.
This category of the crossing will start at the Roca de Pines refuge, located in Naturlandia, at 8 o’clock in the morning and will reach the Grau Roig ski resort. The participants will have a maximum of 8 hours to cross the 6 shelters that will be along the road while crossing a large part of the spectacular valley of Madriu-Perafita-Claror.
This route, which has the same starting point and time as the Skimo6, has 4 more refuges for which the participants will have to pass, this time to get to the Ordino-Arcalís station: the one in Siscaró, the one in Coms de Jan, Sorteny’s and Rialb’s.
Being much longer, this test will be divided into two parts: the first on the 24th and the second on the 25th, after a night of rest at the Montmalús refuge.
A much more technical journey for those who are looking for a challenge to overcome.
