ANDORRA SKIMO 2019
23 from February - 24 from February
The fourth edition of the Travessa dels Refugis on mountain skis includes two new trials on the 2019 race circuit.
Andorra Skimo - Travessa dels Refugis continues to expand its race programme and for the fourth edition there is a new trial exclusively for junior and cadet participants, Skimo2, a 14 km route between the Sorteny car park and the Ordino-Arcalís ski resort. The second new addition this year is Skimo4, covering 40 km, which will leave the Grau Roig ski resort and finish at the Ordino-Arcalís Ski resort.
The other two races are the well-known Skimo6 and Skimo10. Skimo6 will maintain the same 30km route from as in previous editions, starting from Naturlandia and finishing at Grau Roig, including six high-mountain refuges. This route passes through emblematic points of the Andorran geography, such as Estany de la Nou, Estany de l’Illa and Vall del Madriu (UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site). Skimo10 is disputed over two stages totalling 70 km. The first starts at Naturlandia and finishes at Grau Roig, and the second goes from this sector in Grandvalira to Ordino-Arcalís.
Andorra Skimo - Travessa dels Refugis recovers the spirit of ski mountaineering and has become a top attraction for the ski mountaineers, both professional and amateur, who practice this discipline. Out of respect for this philosophy, participation in all the races is only in teams of two or three people. This trial scores points for the Andorran Ski Mountaineering Cup.
Location and dates: Naturlandia, Grau-Roig sector in Grandvalira and the Vallnord Ordino-Arcalís ski resort. 23 and 24 February, 2019. More information and registration on its website.
