Bariloche. Early in the morning we meet for coffee and checking gear, and then we choose our objective, based on weather, snow conditions and personal preferences. The top picks in the Bariloche area could involve a chair lift, like Van Titter-Frey and Catedral side-country or just a drive like Challuaco, Cerro Lopez, Cerros Goye-BellaVista or Pitriquitron. During the day, we´ll look for snow quality and great runs, always following IFMGA safety standards and also focusing on helping you to be a better backcountry skier  at the end of the day. After skiing we enjoy a cold beer at the local brewery.
