Sierra negra

Altitude Helibike & Ski

Welcome to the moon!

Without a doubt one of the top descents in the Pyrenees, and possibly the world!

When we land on the peak of Estiba Freda (2700m) it will feel like another planet with unmatched paroramic views. To the south you can see the Benasque valley and to the North the Aneto Massif and the Maladeta. We begin this descent on broken but smooth black shale for which this range is named.

Dropping and climbing over too lesser peaks, fast riding through and area devoid of vegetation we enjoy the long descent to the Ardonnes col. From here we enter into a forest that even our Canadian friends would envy. Curves and more curves through mature pines bring us to Benasque after almost 2000 meters of elevation loss, resulting in a sensation of unequaled satisfaction and blissful exhaustion.
