near Prats, Canillo (Andorra)

Lovely tour up a beautiful peak that sits in the middle of Andorra, giving panoramic views from the top in all directions. Also away from the Andorra/France border so sometimes is clear of cloud when the border is covered. Requires a few kick-turns up two steeper sections on the ridge, and if the snow is thin, you might need to boot pack across one short rocky section. But you can turn back at any point and have a fun ski descent, so it can work as a shorter tour for beginners.
For the ski descent, there are many possibilities. If you drop straight off the summit down the south-east face, beware the bands of rock lower down that may be barely covered in snow. And be sure that the slope is stable. If in doubt follow the ridge down until you are happy with the snow and then go skiers left as you wish. Great fun with big swooping turns through widely spaced trees.
