Description

On this 6 day ski touring adventure, I would like to guide you through some of the best descents in Patagonia. Within the Andes of Argentina, during this expedition, you will get to trek, climb and descend from the beautiful Frey hut to the Jacob hut. You will also get to spend some time at the beautiful Cerro Catedral, where you can enjoy more great skiing. Furthermore, this trip will begin and end at Bariloche, the beautiful and lively city that often starts as an entry point to the vastness and magic of Patagonia.

We will be traversing through the Nahuel Huapi National park. This amazing area will offer plenty of natural scenery that you can admire throughout the days. It is also filled with enough fresh snow to ski to your heart’s content.

A big part of this trip is the huts. Not only are the Frey hut and the Jacob hut comfortable, making them an ideal place to rest, recuperate and sleep after a long day’s sleep, but they are also home to some great slopes as well. Also, because of the nature of their location, particularly the Jacob hut, they offer a calm, remote feeling. Hence making this trip one of peace and tranquility, just as it is a trip of fun and excitement.

Traversing through Patagonia is an experience you will never forget. And to experience it for 6 wonderful days, all you have to do is send me a request. 

Would you like to do some climbing in Patagonia? Then come and join me on this 6 day journey to the summit of the highest peak in the region, the Domuyo volcano.

About the guide

Mountain Guide - EPGAMT - Argentina
I was born in Patagonia, Argentina and formed at an early age as a climber in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. Currently I completed a large number of rock and ice climbing routes, backcountry skiing and ascents in many mountains around the world such as Mt. Lhotse (8.516 mts.), the 4th highest peak in the world, without using supplemental oxygen (May, 2012).
I'm a certified Mountain Guide from the EPGAMT and a member of the Argentinian Mountain Guides Association (AAGM) and work on Mt. Aconcagua, which I had repeatedly ascended, as well as in other peaks in the Central Andes, Patagonia, Chile, Peru, Bolivia and in The Himalayas in Nepal.
During the winter season, I practice backcountry skiing, mostly on the volcanoes in Patagonia, where I can offer you different adventures, according to your level (beginner, learner or advanced learner).
I feel very privileged to work as a mountain guide, to do the job that I love, and to be able to share it with people that have the same passion.
Join my expeditions and I will provide you a high standard of safety and personal attention!
