Skiers seeking the rugged backcountry blanketed with thick white powder look no further than El Chalten.
Located in the heart of Patagonia, the small mountain village of El Chalten lies within the Los Glaciares National Park and rests at the foothills.
The town is the perfect springboard to explore the wild slopes surrounding it, especially via ski touring.
Ski among the towering peaks of Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre and the Southern Ice Field.
We’ll venture further than most skiers, beyond the lines at the lifts, and head into the remote mountainside.
Explore the slopes of Loma del Diablo (1,800 meters) and Cerro Vespignani (2,146 meters), as well as Cerro Madsen. These tree spots offer excellent skiing conditions, testing terrain and breathtaking beauty.
To take part in this ski touring adventure, skiers are required to have very good levels of fitness, given that our approach involves carrying our own skis. You’ll also need prior experience of ski touring.
The exact locations of the trip may be modified subject to weather and snow conditions.

Certified UIAGM-IFMGA Mountain Guide from Argentina.
I live in El Chaltén since 1998. I'm originally from Bariloche and I started with mountain activities when I was 15 years old. I've done climbing and ascents in many mountains of Patagonia, Perú, Bolivia, United States and Europe; such as Fitz Roy, Cerro Torre, Alpamayo, El Capitán, Mont Blanc and Aconcagua among others. I'm also a Ski Instructor and I am passionate for backcountry ski.
I speak fluent English, Italian and French and have been leading trips and expeditions for more than 20 years. I work together with a group of guides, so if I'm not available for the trip you request, one of my colleagues will guide you!
