Description

Would you like to improve your ski touring skills in a unique South American destination? Then come to El Chalten, in Patagonia Sur, for an intensive ski touring clinic!

El Chaltén is located in the Argentine Province of Santa Cruz, within the Los Glaciares National Park. Lying at the foot of the Alps, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, it is one of the most beautiful mountain villages in South America.

The goal of this clinic is that you improve your ski touring skills. We will work on equipment usage, security, and powder and glacier skiing techniques. Keep in mind that you can join me for one or several days!

With varied alpine terrain, a long winter season and top-quality snow, El Chalten is a perfect destination for a thrilling alpine experience. Depending on the weather conditions, the mounts of Vespignani, Mosquito, Crestón y Madsen are some of the posible spots we may visit!

We will define the specific itinerary according to your skills and your physical preparation. However, I recommend at least intermediate piste skiing skills and a good fitness level. Furthermore, keep in mind that ski touring requires hiking and climbing in alpine environments too.

So, are you up for this ski touring clinic in El Chalten? Then let’s explore a scenic alpine region and enjoy the thrill of an awesome adventure!

If you are interested, I also offer an Ice climbing course. Check it out here.

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Argentina.

I’m trekking guide since 2009, and became fully IFMGA certified in 2014.
I’ve climbed in many destinations in the Andes in Argentina, and also in Perú, Brasil, France, Spain, Italy and Austria.

I work together with two other colleagues and friends, Indio and Tomás, who are also IFMGA. So if I’m not available to guide you, one of them can do it.

The three of us live in El Chalten, where we practice our profession and develop our passion for climbing and skiing. And we want to share it by opening the doors to all those who want to live their Patagonian experience in a safe and unforgettable way.

We are also committed to mountain training. Therefore, we can give you the basic tools to move in the mountain safely and smoothly. That's why we offer courses for all levels depending on the terrain you want to train. We give lessons of rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier transit and mountain skiing.
