Ski Touring Patagonia

An Activity not suitable for everyone

Ski touring while sharing the same principles as alpine skiing, it does not have much in common. Mainly there are no ski lifts; in fact there are no tracks!

We´ll approach carrying the skis to the beginning of the snow, then ski uphill and choose the slope to start our descent.

This activity requires previous ski experience, great fitness, and mental attitude to descent in remote areas of El Chaltén.
