IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!
The train ticket has to be bought the same day of the departure or one day before at the ticket-office (Ventanillas).
!!There is always a lot of people queuing at any time!!

If you buy it from the Renfe/Rodalies Machine; select from the first window: “Productes combinats” and then “Trennatura Vall de Nuria”
It is absolutely impossible to buy the pass in the train!!!
The meet up participation is 1 € to help me to bear the Meetup webpage cost.
Hope to meet lots of you soon
Go to bed early on Saturday night to enjoy the full day :)
I do recommend you bring your picknick.

      Hi Alain, yeah am also very sad was really looking forward to the snowshoeing - but with the mountain always safety first so think you were right to cancel! So next time with good weather for sure! Had a quick look at the weather for Ripoll etc...still seems quite a bit of rain, so think I will pass on any hiking for tmrw. Will join another trip asap - bring on the good weather please!! And count me in for the next raquetas outing....

      Hi Natasha, thanks for this support. I felt really annoyed for all the group. I wished so much to go. What I ll do I ll postpone the event asap. need to check when

    No worries,
    - The wind impact especially the summits
    - We will reduce the hike path if too windy
    - There are still many to see
    - Anyway authorities closes the routes if too dangerous, and when it happens it concerns mainly the ski resort

    Hi Alain,

    I have never done an excursion with snow rackets and I would love to. What kind of cloths should I bring? I usually go skiing, so I have snow pants and jacket. Will they be ok? And what kind of shoes would I need?

    Thanks,
    Angel
