Frey hut backcountry ski touring open tour- Join the group

13 August, 2018 - 15 August, 2018

Refugio Frey is renowned as one of the best ski huts in Argentina!  The setting is magical: a cirque of golden granite spires and the couloirs in between the towers come down to merge at a frozen lagoon.  Frey Hut sits beside the lake in the peaceful wilderness of Nahuel Huapi National Park.  The cirque offers all aspects of 5 star AT terrain for every backcountry skier.

Possibilities are endless!  Determined by skiers’ preference and the weather conditions, your mountain guide can show you nice open mellow bowls, steep chutes from 30-50 degrees, intermediate-level chutes, and valleys for nice daily ski tours.  One highlight for advanced backcountry skiers is the Zebra Couloirs which are chutes of about 2000 continuous vertical feet at 30-40 degrees.  If weather does not cooperate or there is low visibility, there is tree skiing and the cozy hut to come back to.
