Description

Let me invite you to live 3 unforgettable days ascending the Frey Hut and then, carving the best turns down to Bariloche.

If you love Patagonia you probably know that the Frey Hut is one of the best refuges in the area. It lies in the peaceful wilderness of the famous Nahuel Huapi National Park. During the winter, the imposing Patagonian scenery becomes the best terrain for backcountry skiing.

The Frey Valley offers endless opportunities for all levels of skiers. From beginners to experts. As your local guide I will show you the best open bowls and slopes to ski. Each itinerary will depend on your wishes and preferences.

By the end of the day we will enjoy excellent wines and beers as well as the most delicious home made meals at the Frey Hut. We’ll also spend the night there.

As for the day by day program please find it at the bottom of the page. Our starting point will be in the Cerro Catedral Ski Resort. It is very close to the city of Bariloche.

The best season to ski in this region is from mid August to late October. That is why I also offer other ski touring programs in Patagonia during these months. For example, you can check out this 9-day ski tour around the main spots of Bariloche.

About the guide

UIAGM-IFMGA-IVBV Mountain Guide

My name is Jorge, and I am one of the first IFMGA/UIAGM Certified Mountain Guides in Argentina. I got my full UIAGM-IFMGA certification in 2005. I was one of the pioneer mountain guides in Argentina and Chile to introduce Ski Mountaineering and Backcountry Skiing back in 1999.

In 2009, I became one of the first Argentines to work as a Ski Guide on the Antarctic Peninsula and ski peaks in that area. I helped, co-worked and guided ski athletes from Salomon, Arcteryx, Smith and the North face, such as Xavier de Le Rue, Luca de Bari, Eric Hjorleifson and other pro-athletes of the ski industry in the production of ski films in Argentina and Chile.

I have been guiding across Patagonia for more than 15 years now. In the past few years I have also guided in Antarctica, Norway and Iceland.

Patagonia is my home. This is where I started to develop most of my guiding skills and experiences at an early age. Today, I spend half of the year guiding overseas, and the other half guiding in Argentina and Chile.

Regarding my personal resume as a guide and sportsman, some of the highlights include classic Granite climbs in Yosemite National Park like the Half Dome Regular NW face in a day and Sentinel Rock (Herbert- Chouinard route); several ski mountaineering expeditions to Alaska including the inner Chugach range; the Wrangell's-Saint Elias range, spending two weeks in a tent in the Icefield, skiing couloirs and faces as much as we could. Other great mountaineering expeditions I went on include:
- A remote expedition to Mariano Moreno in the Patagonian Icefield
- Several rock climbs in Europe, like the Dolomites, Slovakia, French and Swiss Alps, and Spain
- Guiding the Mont Blanc ascent on skis
- Technical classic ice/rock Rebuffat- Terray on Pelerins in Chamonix
- Frendo Spur in Chamonix
- Fitz Roy and other satellites spires in Patagonia

I happily spend a lot of my time on skis, and guiding mostly technical backcountry and volcanoes in Patagonia.

I’m fluent in Spanish and English.
