Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

Southeast Slope

The descent is a relatively easy descent, that will put you back at the top of St. Mary's Glacier.  it is wide open, with some rocks sticking out here and there.  The top is often windblown and the snow is sun effected since it is east facing.

Details

Argentina is a big place, with a lot of skiing opportunities.  There are ski areas, as well as backcountry 'refugios' that are similar to the hut systems we have in the United States.  These refugios often have stoves, cooking supplies, and beds, but you must supply your own food and sleeping bags.  The terrain is varied, but generally trending towards bigger lines with steeper aspects.

How to Get There

Bariloche is a superb location for starting your South American backcountry ski trip.  Transportation to and from there is relatively easy, and you can find guides, maps, and gear in town.  You will want to secure your own transportation, and it will be helpful if you come with your gear.
