Today I would like to offer you a one-day skiing tour in Ushuaia.

A backcountry skiing or splitboarding adventure in Ushuaia is quite similar to a trekking day. However, the boards give us something different: the excitement of virgin snow descents!

Let’s ski far from the lifts and tourists, in the heart of a stunning winter land. The tour will take 7 hours in total, form 9 AM to 16 PM.

Ushuaia is one of the best backcountry skiing destinations in Patagonia. Located in the southernmost point of Argentina, in the Tierra del Fuego province, Ushuaia offers the longest ski season of the continent. Also, the amount and quality of snow is perfect, what guarantees the best ski runs and descents.

The large slopes in places like the Olum valley, Mount Alvear, the Martial glacier and Cerro Portillo are some of the key destinations to enjoy the best snow in unbelievable and unspoiled natural surroundings.

This backcountry ski day is perfect for intermediate-advanced alpine skiers. Anyway, if you don’t have prior experience you can also come. Tierra del Fuego has something for everyone with endless slopes for all levels of participants! I will decide the best place for you and the group according to your skills and expertise.

And if you are an experienced skier let me recommend you the multi-day package tours. You can explore the Fuegian Mountains with your boards in an superb expedition of 3 or 7 days!

Contact me now so we can organize this ski-day or combine several destinations in a multi-day trip. I will be waiting for you!

    I will contact you the day before to discuss the appropriate ground for the excursion and to set a meeting point and starting time.

    The day of the tour, I will pick you up from your accommodation and take you to the chosen place. It will depend on the conditions and the skills of the group. Once the tour starts, there will be stops for lunch and snacks. You will enjoy a unique day in the Fuegian Mountain Range.

About the Guide

 
 

GM-AAGM Mountain Guide and GEM-AAGM Ski Guide from Argentina.

I was born and live in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world! I've been skiing since I was 2 years old, and compited as a ski athlete in alpine world ski championships.

In 2007 I retired from professional competitions to focus on my guiding career. I trained on rock, ice and mixed climbing skills as well as guiding techniques and became a mountain guide in 2011 at the Argentinean Mountaineering Guides Association (AAGM). In 2017 I completed the guiding courses to become also a certified Ski Mountain Guide GEM-AAGM.

I've done a large number of technical climbs at the Darwin Range and Patagonia while many of those are new lines.
