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.

We’re excited to announce there is an awesome opportunity to visit the refugi this winter as local Jones dealer, Mombi Surf, is hosting several 3-day Splitboard camps at the Saboredo. Open to splitboarders of all abilities, the camps are lead by UIAGM mountain guide and splitboarder Punsola Faust. The camp includes guided touring, technique clinics, two nights at the refugi with half-board and liability insurance.

Price per person only € 225!!!

Tentative dates:

27 - 28th February 2016 / March 2016 5-6 / 12-13 March 2016 / 19-20 March 2016
