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.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
