Pere Renom

“We have given you, O Adam, no visage proper to yourself, nor endowment properly your own, in order that whatever place, whatever form, whatever gifts you may, with premeditation, select, these same you may have and possess through your own judgement and decision […] We have made you a creature neither of heaven nor of earth, neither mortal nor immortal, in order that you may, as the free and proud shaper of your own being, fashion yourself in the form you may prefer.”
Oration on the Dignity of Man – Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

Prevent avalanches

published on 6 02 2019

The reporter of the program Pere Renom ascends with skis of mountain to the Cap des Clòsos, a summit of the Valley of Aran of 2.417 meters of altitude, opening trace through the snow. He is accompanied by two experienced mountaineers, one of whom, Ivan Afonso, survived an avalanche 20 years ago. From this experience the reporter knows Lauegi, “Avalanche” in Aranese, a team of nivologists of the Conselh Generau d’Aran dedicated mainly to the daily prediction of avalanches. The reporter also accompanies a technician to locate capercaillie by radio tracking at the suroundings of the ski resort of Port Ainé and discovers that alpine skiing can be compatible with the conservation of high mountain fauna.
The following spoke: Ivan Afonso, wildlife technician, Conselh Generau d’Aran, Isaac Castet, environmental agent, Conselh Generau d’Aran, and Montserrat Bacardit and Ivan Moner, Lauegi, Conselh Generau d’Aran.
