5. Backcountry skiing in Frey
Frey is the backcountry option for skiers visiting Bariloche. The refuge sits at the shores of Nahuel Huapi Lake and at the base of Cerro Catedral. We’re talking not only about, you know, the peaceful setting of the rocky mount contrasting with the pristine snow. It is also about the ski runs in the forest and the relaxing stay in the very well-equipped hut.
The only disadvantage of the place is that it has been famous for offering such a good experience to skiers for so long, that nowadays it gets heavily demanded by tourists —that’s also the main reason why people are looking into undiscovered areas like Chaltén and Baguales nowadays.
