Type of Trip
It is a honor for me to invite you to this unique 3-day ski tour in the Frey Hut. It is a must on a ski trip if you plan to come to Bariloche!
As you probably know, the Frey hut is located at 1700 meters above sea level, at the foot of the Frey needle. This mountain hut is a legendary refuge with a really warm and nice ambiance. Furthermore, the amazing skiing options are endless. During this 3-day tour I will lead you between granite towers and deep blue mountain lagoons.
As for the itinerary, it starts in the popular Cerro Catedral ski area. Then, after some ski lifts and nice runs down and up the Vantitter valley, we’ll reach the Frey hut. The next days will be really exciting, skiing through the most outstanding landscapes around the hut. On the third day, we’ll return to Bariloche by private transfer.
Are you coming? So, fill out the form and contact me. We will discuss and plan together your next ski tour in this Patagonian paradise!

What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
