Description



A full-day splitboarding or cross-country skiing tour is very similar to a day of trekking but with an advantage: an exciting descent in virgin snow.

For those who have no previous experience, we offer a tour to visit some of the innumerable slopes offered by Tierra del Fuego. Our proposal is that we enjoy a full day of skiing away from the crowds in the lifts and in the heart of a wonderful winter landscape. According to the snow conditions and the expectations of the interested people, we propose a unique and memorable adventure in the company of certified AAGM guides.

This is an activity of great physical effort. However, this is a personalized tour and we will look for it to be suitable for those interested.

We include safety equipment for avalanches and, upon request, we can provide ski equipment or splitboard in case you do not have yours.

The duration of the tour is from 9am to 4pm.

The guide will contact the passengers the previous day to analyze the available and appropriate possibilities for the excursion and to establish a meeting point and start time. You will be provided with an avalanche kit (shovel, ARVA and ski probe). Let us know if you need ski equipment (boards, canes, "sealskin" or climbing shoes and boots).
