Featured Descent

Chimney Chute

The main descent is straight down the chute through two hallways, which are not super narrow.  There is a skiers right option if the main line has already been hit.  It is a great route but can have serious avalanche hazards and potential to pin a person into a rock or drag over a cliff.  Pay attention to the convexity on the top, this route can get wind loaded.  The exit is a right turn down the first creek to the parking lot.

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.
