Description

Have you always dreamed of ski touring in Patagonia? Well, now is your chance! Join me for three days as we ski the slopes around Refugio Frey in Patagonia Norte.

What to expect

We'll set off early on our first day so that we can make the most of the day ahead. The areas around Refugio Frey are really beautiful and as we ski around we'll be able to enjoy amazing views.

Refugio Frey is tucked in amongst tall towers of granite which make the slopes pretty unique and the snow quality pretty good. I know this area well so I'll be on hand the whole time to offer any tips and tricks.

We'll spend hours on the mountains, and when we're not skiing, we'll be chilling out at the Refugio. There we'll enjoy delicious afternoon teas, or merienda in Spanish, and warming dinners. Just what you need after a good day on the slopes.

Request to book now and soon you'll be cruising down the mountain in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

If you'd like to spend more time ski touring in North Patagonia, you should definitely check out my five-day ski touring trip.

About the 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.

This trip was amazing! Highly recommend. Juan was a great guide. He showed us all the basics of ice climbing and glacier transit. I feel comfortable as a beginner ice climber to go out on my own safely. We practiced top rope ice climbing, placing ice screws and glacier travel. We learned crevasse rescue. We stayed in the Refugio Valle del Creston (Google it, the place is beautiful). On the last day we put all our skills to practice to attempt to summit a glaciated mountain. Totally recommend the trip!!

Juan is a knowledgable, personable and strong guide. Cerro Solo is a great short peak for those wishing to hone their skills. Campsite is beautiful
