Good to Know



The north of the country is warmer than the south, where there are snowfalls during most of the winter, from June to August. The climatic conditions near the Andes are windy and dry. As we move away from there, the weather becomes wetter and rainier, especially in autumn, from March to June.

The trip was really successful. I got an excellent guide Pablo, I am sorry that didn’t know his surname. Pablo
is very professional and responsible guide. He knows an area perfectly, very attentive and caring in relation to client. Thanks to him I did evan more than really could. I learnt with him a new ski techniques and my ski level really rose. Patagonian mountains is a place of strongest beauty and I think that to spend there even a few days is a rare success. I surely recommend Andescross company and guide Pablo for turing skiing in Patagonia.
Sebastian was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and thoughtful in his safety decisions. He is also just a great guy to ski
with – we had a blast with him!
This was my first experience of a backcountry and Patagonian skiing and it could not have been a more rewarding
experience. Unbelievable scenery, fantastic skiing and great fun. Jorge is the consummate host, able to combine a group of mixed ability fitness and experience without ever compromising on the level of challenge: guide, teacher, asador, guitar master and now friend, I cannot recommend Andescross highly enough
Jorge was a phenomenal mountain guide. He put us in some great snow and kept everyone safe. He is personally
a great guy and went out of his way to make sure everyone had a great time. I’m always happy to serve as a reference for anyone considering a trip with Andescross. Spent two days in Baguales. Snow as incredible and the food was tier I. A truly unique, top tier experience. Hundreds of acres of private ski land in the Andes provided a unique, isolated touring experience. Spent four days at Frey Hut. Jorge knew all the tips and tricks to make the stay very enjoyable. We toured up to a few peaks every day. Made lots of friends from all walks of life. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat, and hopefully take more time to do a few volcanoes later in the season. Next on the list – Antarctica or Norway with Andescross!
I can’t say enough good things about AndesCross and my recent 7 day backcountry hut tour. Trip of a life
time in all aspects. We skied incredible terrain, experienced the local culture and had an amazing time as a group. Everyone had the opportunity to achieve bigger ski objectives while staying safe. Jorge made sure everyone in our group had a great experience, both while skiing and while in Bariloche. None of the pictures do justice. Everything was perfect. I’ve done a number of similar trips in the US and Canada and would rank this at the very top of my list.
It was a real pleasure to spend two amazing days with Lucas. Really nice to spend time with him and
most important Lucas is really a good guide. The trips were amazing with a fantastic scenario. Even if snow conditions were not the best, the panorama has played a key role in making this trip unforgettable
My friend and I went for a day backcountry skiing to Martial Galcier. We had a brilliant time, the guide
was a champion!
