ARGENTINA HUT TRIP
9 DAY TRIP
August 4 - 12 2023
Escape the heat of summer and chase the endless winter south of the equator. Bariloche Argentina is the mecca of South American skiing. During this trip the itinerary is customized based on weather. There is a variety of types of skiing we can do in the area even on storm days. Our main goal is to spend 5 days at the Refugio Frey hut. This hut is gorgeous with steep granite spires and couloirs surrounding it. Inside the hut we get 3 meals a day, a warm place to sleep, and a place to dry our gear. The hut is a half day tour from the ski area, and we are sure to have an amazing experience.
