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.
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!
