North Patagonia 5-day ski touring trip 4

Experience 2 days of incredible ski touring from the Baguales Lodge in Bariloche, in Argentinean Patagonia with Indio, an IFMGA certified guide.



2 Days

Jul - Sep




* Enjoy 2 days of great skiing at the Baguales Ski Lodge near Bariloche.

* Ski at great spots like the Cerro Villegas or the lengas forests.

* Spend a night in the comfortable Mesada Refuge.


Located southeast of the city of Bariloche, in Argentinean Patagonia, the Baguales ski lodge is home to some fantastic slopes. And on this 2-day adventure, I would like to guide you to the best spots based on the snow conditions, weather conditions, your skill level and personal preferences.

The day before our 2-day trip begins, we will have a brief meeting that will cover all last minute details as well as an equipment check. The following day, early in the morning, we will make our way to the Baguales ski lodge from Bariloche. Once there, we will go to the Mesada Refuge, where you will leave your personal belongings. Afterwards, you will get to enjoy a full day of great skiing at places like Cerro Villegas and Cerro Ciruelas. After that, we will return to the refuge, where you can enjoy a delicious dinner and get a good night’s sleep.

On the second day of the trip, after breakfast, we will go to an area different from the day before. That could possibly include some great skiing in the enormous, nearby lengas forests. After that, we will return to the refuge, where you will get your belongings and we will return to Bariloche.

If you are looking for a great place to ski in Argentinean Patagonia, you can’t go wrong with the Baguales ski lodge. To join me on this 2-day trip, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you.

Mountain Guide

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.

What people are saying about Indio



Due to bad weather, we had to move the day of the climb, and instead of Indio, Pipa took me to the walls across the river in the Paredon de Los Condores. We had a great day of climbing; Pipa was super chilled and knowledgeable, sharing a lot of helpful tips and guiding me up the wall. We started with easy climbs and kept progressing until maxing it out. I had a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to doing other climbs with Pipa whenever I get a chance to visit Chalten again. Highly recommend.



Had a great time!



(Not Indio) Juan was a very kind and knowledgeable guide. He knew exactly where to take us for warmups and hard climbing routes. His professionalism and attention to detail was clear on the multi pitch route we did - we felt safe and in control the entire time. Juan was also fun and we ended up with tons of local recommendations for things to do for the remainder of our trip. Thank you Patagonia Ascents. Communication was good, attention to detail was great.


Indio was a fun and skillful guide! My friend and I did multi and single pitch with him and felt very safe. We felt like we were climbing with a friend and learned along the way! We will be back, maybe next time mountaineering with Indio!


If you think of organising a trip to the "6miles" in Catamarca, I am in! Thanks for your guiding tour around "El Chalten"!
