Guide to Ski-Touring in Patagonia


Patagonia, set in the Andes mountains, is the highest mountain range behind the Himalayas. It has some of the most unique landscapes for ski touring that still remain relatively untouched. Dependable snowfall throughout the winter provides an abundance of deep powder. And there a number of well maintained resorts that are gathering a solid reputation amongst the skiing community. 

The ski season in Patagonia starts around July and finishes in October. The further south you go, the longer the ski conditions last. During the height of winter, the Ice Caps can become too treacherous to visit, so we recommend sticking to the Argentinian Lake District or the Chilean volcanoes if you plan on travelling at that time of the year.

Ski touring trips usually involve staying in mountain huts along the way although it is possible to intersperse this with nights in hotels.

Whether you plan to ski in Chile or Argentina, there are a wide variety of options available to you.
