    Patagonia Ski Touring Beta - September 2019

    Looking for beta for 2 weeks of ski touring in Patagonia in September 2019 (8/311 through 9/14).

    I fly into Bariloche arriving on Saturday 8/31 at 2pm and leave 2 weeks later same place same time.
    My (less experienced) brother will be joining me for the first few days around the Bariloche area.
    Then I will be solo and was thinking of flying to El Calafate and transfering to El Chalten Friday to Friday.

    Hopes & dreams:
    • Refugio Frey ski touring 2-3 days
    • Possibly Frey to Meilling and summit Cerro Tronador (3-5 days)
    • Fitzroy & Cerro Torre base camps and ski touring 3-5 days.


    I would hire an IFMGA guide for El Chalten area, and for summiting Tronador.

    What should I know?
    What should I absolutely not miss?
    What summits should I look into? I'm more interested in mountaineering style summits than just lapping a pow bowl.
    Recommended guide services in those areas?

    Thank you!!

    You mean the middle age, middle class, white dudes using the TGR bro-brah identity to wallow through their mid-life crisis? Yah, they're pretty fucking obnoxious.
