Visiting Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina is an experience you will never forget. The scenery is stunning, and just knowing you are at the bottom of the Americas is nothing short of thrilling. However, in addition to the beauty of Ushuaia there is also a great deal of outdoor activities you can enjoy. One of those activities is skiing. And, on this trip, you will get to enjoy a skiing lesson at the Martial Glacier.

Geared to beginner level skiers, throughout this course, which lasts for approximately one hour, though you can pay for additional time, you will learn a great deal.

Some examples of what we will cover during this course includes the following.

  • Movements in the plane
  • Balance exercises
  • Introduction to the equipment

This course is lots of fun and very educational, and when you add that to the beauty of Ushuaia, you are in for a memorable experience. To enjoy it for yourself, please send a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

About the guide

guide profile img

I have been living in Ushuaia since 1982. I am a certified member of the AADIDESS (Argentinean Association of Ski and Snowboarding Instructors and Rescuers).I have dedicated myself to mountain sports since early on in my life. I started initially with cross-country skiing and alpine skiing, a fascinating activity that allowed me to discover, love and respect the incredible beauty of natural mountain environment. Since then, I haven’t stopped exploring different mountains of the Andes in Tierra del Fuego. Those years of experience allowed me to train myself in several mountain courses, which gave me the opportunity to explore other destinations outside the island, with unique experiences and adventures.

Some of those were climbs of quick accessibility and low complexity such as volcanoes of Patagonia, in cross-country skiing mode, like the Osorno Volcano, Villarrica, Llaima, Lonquimay (Chile) and among them the Lanín volcano and Copahue (Argentina). I also joined longest and more demanding expeditions, like Aconcagua, Continental ice, Cerro Gorra Blanca, Cerro Tronador, Domuyo Volcano, Aconquija Crossing to Los Alisos National Park (Catamarca and Tucumán) and several Cordón del Plata hills. Climbing the iconic Cerro San Lorenzo in the Santa Cruz Province crowned my mountain activity, due to its complexity, incredible beauty and high level of risk.

As an Instructor I have worked mainly as a member of Club Andino Ushuaia, providing training in the areas of rock climbing, glacier crossing, mountaineering initiation, and especially in Cross-Country Skiing. I’ve had a long career in this last area, providing training to Armed Forces (BIM 4). I was also a member of the Rescue Assistance Committee at its inception, organized by the CAU.
