Type of Trip
The region of Patagonia has a wide variety of ski touring options for all levels of skiers.
This time, I would like to invite you to a enjoy a classic ski tour in Patagonia but in a different way. As a local guide, I’ll take you through uncrowded corners and wild landscapes. Furthermore, you will ski on places you have never imagined!
During this week we will also ski in two of the most important ski areas in the Patagonia region. On the one hand, I will guide you through the gentle slopes of Cerro Lopez and Cerro Inacayal, on the Argentinian side. On the other hand, we will ski around the Cerro Mirador ski resort as well as the Casablanca Volcano, in Chile.
This amazing cross-country expedition starts in the city of Bariloche, where we’ll head to the Catedral ski area. From there, we’ll spend 7 unforgettable days skinning up and skiing down through the most outstanding spots of the Patagonia.
Please find the complete itinerary at the bottom of this page. And if you want to make your reservation or plan this 7-day ski tour with me, get in touch! It will be my pleasure to be your guide in this adventure!

If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).

If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
Introductory meeting and gear check
We will previously arrange a meeting point in the town of Bariloche where we must be at 4 pm to discuss the itinerary and check the gear.
Catedral ski area - La Lagunita
Meeting at 8:30 am to head out to the Catedral ski center and get our lift tickets. We’ll spend the morning there seeking out the best lines that only the locals know. We’ll decide whether to go off-piste depending on the snow and weather conditions. Lunch and in the afternoon we’ll skin out of bounds to the “La Lagunita” area.
Cerro Lopez or Cerro Chalhuaco
At 8 am we’ll decide where to spend the day depending on the conditions. We’ll get away from the crowds and use our skins to find untracked turns. We’ll review skinning techniques with skis or splitboard as well as some other skills. Return to Bariloche at around 4 pm.
Bayo ski area – Cerro Inacayal
Meeting up at 7 am and then we’ll drive to Villa La Angostura. We’ll take the lifts at Bayo ski area to gain elevation, take some runs and attempt Cerro Inacayal. These are some of the best views while we look for fresh and pristine snow. Overnight in Villa La Angostura
Border crossing and rest day in Entre Lagos, Chile
We’ll leave early to cross the border and make the most of our trip to Chile! We’ll spend a rest day at a cabin in the small town of Entre Lagos, dry out gear and get everything ready for our next objective: our first Chilean volcano.
Starting at the base of a small ski area (without taking the lifts) we’ll skin approximately 5-6 hours to reach the summit of Casablanca. Today is a day to enjoy what we’ve learned and ski our first volcano. If weather (and schedule) allows, we’ll find other spots of the volcano to ski. Overnight in Entre Lagos.
Return to Argentina and Cerro Mirador
If our legs are willing, on the way back we can take a ski on Cerro Mirador, just on the border between Chile and Argentina. The round trip will take 4 hours approximately. Return to Bariloche, dinner and end of such a fascinating program.
The price does not include:
-Lift tickets (Catedral and Bayo)
-Lodging in Bariloche
-Backcountry ski or splitboarding gear
