It’s an honor for me to invite you to this unforgettable ski experience. The Cerro Vespignani is 2,146 meters high and it’s one of the most visited summits. That is because the ascent does not involve great difficulties although a good physical training is necessary. Its vertical drop once at the top is about 1500 meters long.
The Vespignani has really high quality snow, perfect for the practice of cross country skiing and snowboarding. In addition, from the summit there is a breathtaking panoramic view of the Fitz Roy massif and the Continental Ice Field.
As for our itinerary, we’ll start driving early in the morning from El Chaltén to the Lago Del Desierto. Once in the parking lot we must walk for an hour to the foot of the Huemul Glacier. We’ll then continue ascending to the summit. It will take around 6 or 7 hours to reach up there.
After a short rest the best part comes! Time to the ski descent through the slopes of the Cerro Vespignani. It will take us 2 hours to get back to the base and get to the parking lot again. Finally, we will drive back to El Chaltén, reaching there by the afternoon.
This ski tour is suitable for experienced skiers. Although the ascent to the summit is not technically difficult you’ll need a good fitness level. A ski touring background is also mandatory.
I can lead a group of 4 participants as maximum. The best season to come to this region is from July till October, during the winter. And if you want more ski touring adventures in the area, you can join me on this 8-day ski tour on the Chile’s volcanoes.
So, I will be here waiting for your contact. Fill out the form if you find this trip interesting. We’ll discuss and plan the adventure together.
