Ski Touring / Backcountry Skiing:  From October through May, during the winter season, Cantabria converts its beach oriented activities to a destination for those looking for backcountry adventure. Ski touring consist of hiking with skins on your skis to ascend remote mountains, with the goal to enjoy a well-earned descent through virgin snow. Spectacular views of  jagged peaks, deep canyons, and open snowfields, all overlooking the Bay of Biscay, make for a one-of-a-kind experience.
