All Levels

There are a lot of awesome places to ski in and around Bariloche. Join me on a full day of backcountry skiing and experience an authentic Patagonian ski trip.

Our trip really begins the night before when we look at the weather forecast. We’ll decide, depending on the weather, what the best spot will be for us.

Some of the possibilities could be the Valle del Van Titter, Cerro Challhuaco, Cerro Goye, Cerro López, Siete Colores or another mountain.

We can cater to all kinds of levels, so it’s important for me to find out a bit more about your experience so that I can plan the best day out for you.

The next day we’ll meet in the morning and head to our chosen spot to hit the slopes. We’ll find great powder and spend hours making the most of it.  I’ll be on hand every step of the way to offer any advice or help.

Don’t wait, request to book now and start getting excited about your trip.

While you’re in Patagonia, you should definitely check out my one-day ski mountaineering course.

About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Argentina.

I’m trekking guide since 2009, and became fully IFMGA certified in 2014.
I’ve climbed in many destinations in the Andes in Argentina, and also in Perú, Brasil, France, Spain, Italy and Austria.

I work together with two other colleagues and friends, Indio and Tomás, who are also IFMGA. So if I’m not available to guide you, one of them can do it.

The three of us live in El Chalten, where we practice our profession and develop our passion for climbing and skiing. And we want to share it by opening the doors to all those who want to live their Patagonian experience in a safe and unforgettable way.

We are also committed to mountain training. Therefore, we can give you the basic tools to move in the mountain safely and smoothly. That's why we offer courses for all levels depending on the terrain you want to train. We give lessons of rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier transit and mountain skiing.

This trip was amazing! Highly recommend. Juan was a great guide. He showed us all the basics of ice climbing and glacier transit. I feel comfortable as a beginner ice climber to go out on my own safely. We practiced top rope ice climbing, placing ice screws and glacier travel. We learned crevasse rescue. We stayed in the Refugio Valle del Creston (Google it, the place is beautiful). On the last day we put all our skills to practice to attempt to summit a glaciated mountain. Totally recommend the trip!!

Juan is a knowledgable, personable and strong guide. Cerro Solo is a great short peak for those wishing to hone their skills. Campsite is beautiful
