Description

Put your splitboard on and come explore the natural wonders that Bariloche, has for you! I propose a fantastic 6 day winter program during which we will snowboard some of best backcountry spots in North Patagonia!

With the Nahuel Huapi Lake as backdrop, it’s impossible not to fall in love with Bariloche. The Cerro Catedral ski station and the Frey Valley are probably some of the most breathtaking places you will visit in this tour. In addition, Andean snow-capped peaks, deep blue lakes and cozy mountain lodges will make this trip a really memorable and unforgettable experience.

The best period to have a good splitboarding time is from July till September, when the snow conditions are optimal. Keep in mind that you need to be an expert splitboarder/snowboarder and be in very good physical condition. We must ascend steep slopes for several hours and then manage the descents with the proper technique.

As I was born and raised in Bariloche, I will make sure to take you to the wildest and most secret spots of Bariloche’s backcountry. You will discover a very popular winter destination in a way that only a local guide can offer.

Send your request and make your reservation now. I’ll be waiting for you!

And if you’re a skier I also lead a ski touring version of this program. Check it out here.

Accommodation

Three nights in a hotel in Bariloche, two nights in Refugio Frey.

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
