    I am happy to invite you to an amazing ski tour during which we’ll discover the most outstanding spots of Bariloche, Patagonia.

    This trip consists in 7 days of pure backcountry skiing, picking the best lines and the most amazing snow runs that Bariloche has for us. As you may know, this region is one of the favorite destinations for mountaineers and skiers from all over the world.

    This program is specially designed for experts and intermediate skiers. However, I will help you find the proper itineraries according to your level so as to make best use of the days.

    The best season to come to Bariloche and have a great ski touring time is during the winter. The ideal period of the year is from July till early November.

    I will lead a group of at least 2 guests and the meeting point will be at the Bariloche’s airport. Please find the complete day-by-day program at the bottom of this page.

    I also offer several ski touring trips in other points of Argentina and Chile. We can either leave privately or you can join an open group. You can choose among Frey (in Bariloche), the Chilean volcanoes or the Antarctica. If you find this option interesting, please check out my program here.

    So, contact me for further details and make your reservation for next winter! I will be waiting for you.

    About the Guide

     
     

    UIAGM-IFMGA-IVBV Mountain Guide

    My name is Jorge, and I am one of the first IFMGA/UIAGM Certified Mountain Guides in Argentina. I got my full UIAGM-IFMGA certification in 2005. I was one of the pioneer mountain guides in Argentina and Chile to introduce Ski Mountaineering and Backcountry Skiing back in 1999.

    In 2009, I became one of the first Argentines to work as a Ski Guide on the Antarctic Peninsula and ski peaks in that area. I helped, co-worked and guided ski athletes from Salomon, Arcteryx, Smith and the North face, such as Xavier de Le Rue, Luca de Bari, Eric Hjorleifson and other pro-athletes of the ski industry in the production of ski films in Argentina and Chile.

    I have been guiding across Patagonia for more than 15 years now. In the past few years I have also guided in Antarctica, Norway and Iceland.

    Patagonia is my home. This is where I started to develop most of my guiding skills and experiences at an early age. Today, I spend half of the year guiding overseas, and the other half guiding in Argentina and Chile.

    Regarding my personal resume as a guide and sportsman, some of the highlights include classic Granite climbs in Yosemite National Park like the Half Dome Regular NW face in a day and Sentinel Rock (Herbert- Chouinard route); several ski mountaineering expeditions to Alaska including the inner Chugach range; the Wrangell's-Saint Elias range, spending two weeks in a tent in the Icefield, skiing couloirs and faces as much as we could. Other great mountaineering expeditions I went on include:
    - A remote expedition to Mariano Moreno in the Patagonian Icefield
    - Several rock climbs in Europe, like the Dolomites, Slovakia, French and Swiss Alps, and Spain
    - Guiding the Mont Blanc ascent on skis
    - Technical classic ice/rock Rebuffat- Terray on Pelerins in Chamonix
    - Frendo Spur in Chamonix
    - Fitz Roy and other satellites spires in Patagonia

    I happily spend a lot of my time on skis, and guiding mostly technical backcountry and volcanoes in Patagonia.

    I’m fluent in Spanish and English.

    What People are Saying about Jorge Kozulj

    I can\'t say enough good things about AndesCross and my recent 7 day backcountry hut tour. Trip of a life time in all aspects. We skied incredible terrain, experienced the local culture and had an amazing time as a group. Everyone had the opportunity to achieve bigger ski objectives while staying safe. Jorge made sure everyone in our group had a great experience, both while skiing and while in Bariloche. None of the pictures do justice. Everything was perfect. I\'ve done a number of similar trips in the US and Canada and would rank this at the very top of my list.
