Definitely one of the most famous and beautiful mountain refuges in Argentinean Patagonia, the Refugio Frey is a great place to enjoy the best slopes in Bariloche.

For 3 days, I would like to guide you to the best ski touring spots around the Refugio Frey, including the array of high rising granite towers that make the area even more unique, and beautiful. Moreover, throughout this trip, you will also get to enjoy fantastic views of Bariloche.

The day before our trip, we will have a brief meeting where we will finalize important details and perform an equipment check. On the following day, early in the morning, we will go to the Cerro Catedral ski center. From there, we will take the lift to the Van Titter Valley. Afterwards, we will go to the Refugio Frey, where you will get to enjoy the rest of the day skiing, before returning to the refuge for dinner and rest.

On the second day of the trip, after breakfast, we will spend the entire day skiing at various spots around the refuge. At the end of the day, we will return to the refuge for dinner and rest.

On the final day of the trip, we will enjoy more skiing around the refuge in the valley. After that, we will make our way back to Bariloche. We will choose the best route according to the snow and weather conditions.

Participants on this trip should have prior ski touring experience. They should also be in good physical condition.

Skiing around the Refugio Frey and its collection of large, granite towers is a fantastic experience. And on this trip, I would like to guide you through 3 unforgettable days of that experience. To join me, just send a request.

I can also take you on a 3-day ski touring adventure at the Refugio Jakob as well.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am an IFMGA and a High Mountain AAGM certified Mountain Guide. I was born in San Juan, where I found my passion for the mountains when I was a child. Today my home is El Chalten, this magical place where I have my family and where I work and live since 2008.

I have climbed many different peaks along the Andes, as well as in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, France, Spain, Germany Italy, Austria and Switzerland. I have climbed great mountains and new routes in Patagonia, both in Cerro Torre and in the Fitz Roy mountains. I climbed Mount Fitz Roy five times and Mount Torre three times. All of them through different routes and some of them opening a new one.

One of my biggest achievements was the Standhardt - Herron - Egger traverse and the "Directa Huarpe" new route, on the west face of Cerro Torre. As well as climbing the Tehuelche route on the Fitz Roy hill in 16 hours.

I also guide in the Central Andes, in places such as Cerro Mercedario and Vallecitos in Mendoza, among other mountains. I am also a Mountaineering and Climbing instructor in different associations and member of the relief committee at the Club Andino Mercedario of the San Juan Province. I am also a member of the technical committee of the Argentine Association of Mountain Guides, in which I am part of the staff of instructors for IFMGA guides.

I guide my clients mainly in Patagonia. I spend summer in the town of El Chalten and I move to Bariloche, in northern Patagonia, in the winter, where I guide more technical excursions, like ice and/or rock climbing, as well as classic mountaineering ascents. During the year I also guide in the mountains of Peru, Bolivia and in Europe.

Even when I’m not working I enjoy climbing, bouldering, sport skiing and mountaineering. Keeping at my highest level of performance helps me ensure my clients’ safety, that is always my top priority.
