Located in northern Argentinean Patagonia, the Refugio Jakob is a great place to base a ski touring adventure. And for 3 days, you will get to enjoy plenty of amazing descents at Bariloche.

Our trip will begin early in the morning in Bariloche. From there, we will make our way to the Cerro Catedral ski center. Once there, we will then make our way to the Rucaco valley, near the Refugio Jakob. After that, you will get to enjoy an entire day of fantastic skiing. Afterwards, we will return to the refuge, where you can eat a delicious dinner before getting some sleep.

On the second day of the trip, following breakfast, we will ski at the various spots around the refuge. Those spots include the Schweizer passage, the Builders hills, Cela and more. Each one of these spots will most certainly thrill you. They are also full of fantastic views of Patagonia. Afterwards, we will return to the refuge for dinner and rest.

On the final day of the trip, after breakfast, we will make our way back to Bariloche, choosing the best route based on snow and weather conditions.

To participate on this trip, you should be an experienced skier. You should also be in good physical condition.

Skiing around the Refugio Jakob at Bariloche is an unforgettable experience. And on this trip, you will have 3 days to enjoy the various slopes and sights around the famed refuge. To join me on this trip, just send a request.

I can also take you on another 3-day ski touring adventure at the Refugio Frey.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am an IFMGA and a High Mountain AAGM certified Mountain Guide. I was born in San Juan, where I found my passion for the mountains when I was a child. Today my home is El Chalten, this magical place where I have my family and where I work and live since 2008.

I have climbed many different peaks along the Andes, as well as in Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, France, Spain, Germany Italy, Austria and Switzerland. I have climbed great mountains and new routes in Patagonia, both in Cerro Torre and in the Fitz Roy mountains. I climbed Mount Fitz Roy five times and Mount Torre three times. All of them through different routes and some of them opening a new one.

One of my biggest achievements was the Standhardt - Herron - Egger traverse and the "Directa Huarpe" new route, on the west face of Cerro Torre. As well as climbing the Tehuelche route on the Fitz Roy hill in 16 hours.

I also guide in the Central Andes, in places such as Cerro Mercedario and Vallecitos in Mendoza, among other mountains. I am also a Mountaineering and Climbing instructor in different associations and member of the relief committee at the Club Andino Mercedario of the San Juan Province. I am also a member of the technical committee of the Argentine Association of Mountain Guides, in which I am part of the staff of instructors for IFMGA guides.

I guide my clients mainly in Patagonia. I spend summer in the town of El Chalten and I move to Bariloche, in northern Patagonia, in the winter, where I guide more technical excursions, like ice and/or rock climbing, as well as classic mountaineering ascents. During the year I also guide in the mountains of Peru, Bolivia and in Europe.

Even when I’m not working I enjoy climbing, bouldering, sport skiing and mountaineering. Keeping at my highest level of performance helps me ensure my clients’ safety, that is always my top priority.
