Food in the mountains
We recommend packing your snacks of choice for those long days in the mountains. Same goes for your favorite beverages. Eating well is key for keeping your strength up out in the wild. And to cope with the loss of appetite, the best you can have is a wide variety of food at your disposal, from sweet to sour and salty. Carrying at least 2 liters if water is essential.  

Accommodation during the trip
At Piltriquitorn every service is guaranteed. Dinner and breakfast are included in this bundle. At the hut you will have pohone signal. There are no restrooms, we have a letrine in the forest!

Travel and rescue insurance
An insurance plan is mandatory to protect yourself from the unexpected. Check with your insurance company on the details about coverage and policies. Feel free to contact us for details or in doubt.

Book your trip!

Day 1: We leave Bariloche towards El Bolsón. We are going on a trip 100 km south in a 4×4, to the base of Cerro Piltriquitron. After 2 or 3 hs drive we arrive to the parking. In an hour of hike or skining we reached the hut.
We leave the heavy backpack and we have three days left to enjoy this beautiful place in the Andean region.

Day 2: What better than a sunrise in this place and having all day to ski! After breakfast we prepare to explore the area. We will always look for the best lines depending on the conditions of the mountain. Some of the options are Cerro Huemul or Cerro piltriquitron. Estimated time: Whatever your legs give you!

Day 3: After breakfast we prepare to go around and do some goodbye turns. We pick up our gear in the hut and we go down to our vehicle and return to Bariloche. End
of services Estimated time: 8 hs.
