Since Bariloche has a big European influence, the pioneers of the area built a logistic of Mountain huts, that allow skiers and trekkers to move across the ridges of Nahuel Huapi National Park.
This is an adventure for skiers who want to backcountry ski (ski touring) from hut to hut in Lake /District of Northern Patagonia, spending few days in each hut skiing the goods of each valley searching for chutes, powder bowls and steeps with skilled professional local ski guides.
A perfect option for fanatic ski tourers who want to avoid the crowds of the resorts.
The Frey to Jakob hut to hut ski touring traverse is a classic summer trek that has some challenge when we do it skiing in the winter. We’ll be ski touring through the Nahuel Huapi National Park in Bariloche with excellent terrain for intermediate and advanced backcountry skiers exploring the beautiful Andes of Argentina.
Frey hut trip is described in another itinerary as “Skiing Chutes in between Golden Granite”.
The terrain offers great peaks and summit goals, and of course there is nice steeps and chutes option to ski the best of Argentina!
The Southern Andes offers gentle domes, tree skiing, the option of glacier skiing, steep and medium chutes surrounded by frozen lakes and granite spires. Many times we have deep powder for days and days in the south faces. This guided ski trip to Patagonia, Argentina offers the option to use a hut as a base to run different chutes in the same valley or we can travel from hut to hut enjoying the different valleys and views.
For this ski trip we strongly recommend hiring a UIAGM-IFMGA Mountain Guide.
