Description

Spend 7 days in the best southerner spots to ski that Tierra del Fuego has for you. The stunning tree lines, landscapes, mountains and woods make Tierra del Fuego’s surroundings a unique place for backcountry skiing.

As you may know, Tierra del Fuego is the southernmost province in Argentina and is therefore called “the end of the world”. Its large slopes offer us backcountry itineraries for all levels of skiers.

Some of the best places where we will go during this 7-day expedition are:

  • The Olum valley,
  • Mount Alvear,
  • Martial glacier
  • Cerro Bonete

You can find the complete day-by-day itinerary at the end of this page. It is also a perfect trip for expert skiers in search of exploring the Fuegian Mountains with boards. Anyway, all my tours are adequate to each guest. I can plan an adventure according to your fitness level and expectations.

Finally, let me tell you that if you don’t have too much time in Tierra del Fuego I can offer this one-day ski tour. That way you will at least visit the main skiing spots of the area.

So, are you coming to Tierra del Fuego next winter? Get in touch with me as soon as possible. Let’s plan your perfect adventure in this backcountry skiing paradise!

About the guide

Mountain Guide, GEM-AAGM Ski Guide, UIMLA, AIARE level 2 from Argentina.

I was born and live in Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world! I've been skiing since I was 2 years old, and competed as a ski athlete in a Nordic ski and Biathlon world ski championships, world cups and in the winter Olimpic Games Torino 2006

In 2007 I retired from professional competitions to focus on my guiding career. I trained on rock, ice and mixed climbing skills as well as guiding techniques and became a mountain guide in 2011 at the Argentinean Mountaineering Guides Association (AAGM). In 2017 I completed the guiding courses to become also a certified Ski Mountain Guide GEM-AAGM.

I've done a large number of technical climbs at the Darwin Range and Patagonia while many of those are new lines
