DAY 2

Lanin Summit. Before sunrise we have breakfast at the hut and later we start our ascent.

After a quick rest we keep skiing down to the valley where we get our vehicle, and drive back to Bariloche. Once in town we go for the mandatory visit to the microbrewery before taking you to your hotel. B, LB.
