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.
At the end of a beautiful day of backcountry skiing, Frey Hut offers excellent Malbec wines, beer on tap from local microbreweries, homemade pasta, pizza, and fondue!
Frey mountain hut ski touring place is pretty much where we grew up and learned to love the mountains. We at Andescross spent most of our teenage years up there; rock climbing the granite towers in the summer and skiing the chutes in between them in the winter. We’ve been sharing great experiences there friends and clients for many years. It is a place to fall in love with!
