Itinerary

 
  • Day 1: Bariloche - Frey hut

    We start early in the morning up to Catedral ski resort, where we go up using the lifts. We then continue with backcountry skis to the edge of the mountain, from where we make a 600 m descent to the Van Titter Valley. From there we ascend 300 m to the Frey hut. After lunch there we enjoy skiing during the afternoon in the classic spots around the area, such as Roca Inclinada, Piramidal, etc.

  • Day 2: Skiing around Frey Hut

    We wake up early for a whole skiing day, enjoying the best chutes in the area. There are plenty of options: Canaleta de la Principal, Cinta Vecinal, East from Principal to Campanile valet, etc. We can either go back to the hut for lunch or continue until the afternoon skiing.

  • Day 3: Frey Hut - Bariloche

    There are several options to return from the hut to the ski resort, and depending on the weather and snow conditions I decide the best one. We can do the last descents in the area and then go back through the Van Titter valley to the edge of Cerro Catedral. In case of bad weather the option is to return through the normal trail of Frey hut.
