Join Juan, a certified local mountain guide, for a thrilling 2 day ski mountaineering ascent of the amazing Mount Tronador near Bariloche in Argentina Patagonia.
Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec
Resting on the border between Argentina and Chile, Tronador is perfect for ski mountaineering. And during this 2 day adventure, you will see and experience much of what makes Patagonia so incredible.
After we pick you up from your hotel in Bariloche, we will drive to Pampa Linda. From there, we will take a scenic ski touring trek that will last approximately 4 hours to the Meiling hut (1,900m). Once there, you will get plenty of time to explore the area, enjoy the sensational views, and enjoy a delicious dinner before resting for the night.
On the following day, before the sun rises, we will eat breakfast. Afterwards, we will skin on the nearby glacier. You will then get to traverse the Filo de la Vieja, a ridge that separates two glaciers. Though challenging, I will make sure your traverse is conducted safely and enjoyably. After the traverse, we will then descend from the Filo and make our way up through crevasses and seracs and through a plateau until we reach the Trondaor summit. From the summit, you will get to enjoy some truly spectacular views of Patagonia. Afterwards, you will then get to enjoy a mesmerising ski descent all the way to the Meiling hut. We will then keep skiing down to Pampa Linda, where you will catch a transfer back to Bariloche.
Patagonia is amazing no matter how you get to experience it. But I believe ski mountaineering to the summit of one of its most prominent peaks is one of the best ways to do it. So send me a request, and let me guide you to the top of Tronador.

I´m based in Bariloche, Patagonia, where I guide full time, mostly technical custom trips with small groups.
I started guiding in 1998, and my job took me all around the globe. In Montana, USA, where I lived for many years I worked extensively in the Rockies, guiding in the Tetons, Wind Rivers, and the Beartooths. Back to Argentina, I spend most of my time ski guiding volcanoes, rock climbing at Frey and mountaineering in Chalten and Tronador.
The rest of time I work as a Technical director at the AAGM, forming new guides, and trying to be an exciting dad for my two kids, taking advantage of the great backyard we have at home!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
