Teeming with playfully textured terrain and home to some of the friendliest people on earth, the Spanish Pyrenees are an amazing destination for splitboarding. One of the crown jewels of the range is the Refugi Saboredo, a backcountry hut positioned in a prime cirque 4 miles behind the Baqueira Beret ski resort in the town of Vielha. The Saboredo is operated by splitboarders and serves up a thrilling, one-of-a-kind shred experience for the adventurous backcountry rider.
