Luciana, an AAGM certified guide, wants to take you on a fun, and at time challenging, ski touring adventure in the Van Titter valley in Argentina.
Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov
Located near the city of Bariloche, Argentina, the Van Titter valley is a gorgeous place. Like so much of Argentinean Patagonia, the valley is full of natural wonder. And during the winter season, when blanketed with fresh snow, it is a terrific place to enjoy some great ski descents.
The trip will begin at the famous Cerro Catedral (2,405m). We will use the ski lifts to reach the peak’s beautiful ski resort. There, you will get to enjoy some wonderful views! Afterwards, we will trek either on foot or skins, depending on the snow conditions, before we begin descending into the Van Titter valley.
The descents you will get to choose from are a lot of fun. However, they can be a little tough at times. And while they are not reserved only for experts, participants should have some previous ski touring experience. It is also important that you are in good physical condition as well.
Skiing in Patagonia is the kind of adventure you never forget. It’s an inspiring, stunning environment, well worth visiting and enjoying. It’s no wonder so many popular films utilize it! So send me a request, and let me guide you on a great skiing experience in the Van Titter valley.
I can also take you on another full day ski touring adventure on the nearby Cerro Lopez as well.

Originally from San Carlos de Bariloche, as a teenager I became interested in climbing and skiing.
I'm a certified AAGM mountain guide since 2005 and a ski guide, and worked in Northern and Southern Patagonia, including expeditions such as the Patagonian icefield round trips, Nahuel Huapi and Los glaciares national parks´guide.
I'm also a second degree ski patrol and have been working for the last 15 winters in Catedral (Bariloche, Argentina) and Grandvalira (Andorra). ANPS and EASP ski patrol.
I climbed many mountains at Chalten area (Guillaumet, Mermoz, Rafael, Saint Exupéry, media luna), Cerro Fitz Roy (supercanaleta, and Affanasief) and Pilar Casarotto (first female team). Also passionate for sport climbing, I reached a maximum grade of 7 c + (French scale) and have skied through several mountains including Cerro Gorra blanca, Vespignani, Tronador and Lanin.
I'm also a Yoga Vital instructor.
I booked a tour to go hiking months in advance. I confirmed with the guide weeks in advance. When I arrived in Bariloche, I reached out to the guide and she let me know she had the wrong date of. I was never able to go hiking with her. I was able to do all the hiking on my own anyway so it was not a big deal. Probably would not use the company again. I only got annoyed because it did take several days to confirm that I would receive a refund. They did refund the payment.
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip with Luciana! She is a great, knowledgeable guide with decades of experience. I felt extremely comfortable with her and she easily adapted the trip based on my experience level. Highly recommend!
