Type of Trip
Baguales Mountain Reserve, situated in the North Patagonia one hour away from Bariloche is a great place for backcountry skiing. During this 6-day trip, you will travel between different huts in uncrowded and wild skiing terrain.
After meeting in Bariloche, our first aim will be Mesada hut. From here, you will start a journey that will take you to Villegas, Pintado and Foyel huts. During the trip, you will be able to ski on spectacular slopes away from crowds. In addition, you’ll be able to take full advantage of your time and practice this sport on powder snow.
Because I’ve been working in the Patagonia for a long time, I know every spot and I’m willing to show you which place may be the perfect one for you. Our personalized service allows you to progress as you will be guided to suitable slopes depending on your preferences and abilities.
Your stay in the Baguales Mountain Reserve will be unforgettable. Apart from all the skiing, you will enjoy high quality cuisine and lodging.
Join me on this backcountry skiing tour in Baguales. I’ll be glad to guide you in the discovery of the Patagonia. Get ready to be amazed! Request to book this trip!

About the Guide
I´m based in Bariloche, Patagonia, where I guide full time, mostly technical custom trips with small groups.
I started guiding in 1998, and my job took me all around the globe. In Montana, USA, where I lived for many years I worked extensively in the Rockies, guiding in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, and the Beartooths. Back to Argentina, I spend most of my time ski guiding volcanoes, rock climbing at Frey and mountaineering in Chalten and Tronador.
The rest of time I work as a Technical director at the AAGM, forming new guides, and trying to be an exciting dad for my two kids, taking advantage of the great backyard we have at home!
