Telemark Skiing in Argentina?

This is the place to debate politics, global warming, and yes, even the origin of man, whatever. Simply put, if you want to argue about off topic stuff, you've found the right board. Have fun!

Telemark Skiing in Argentina?

Post by BerryBlossom » Sun Jul 07, 2024 3:19 am

Hi everyone,

I'm relatively new to the world of telemark skiing and I'm planning a trip to Argentina soon. I've heard some great things about the ski resorts and backcountry opportunities there, but I honestly have no idea where to start. Can anyone share their experiences or give some advice on the best places to telemark ski in Argentina? Any tips on gear, conditions, or specific areas to check out would be really appreciated!

Looking forward to your insights!

Cheers,

Hey, welcome to telemark. I would like to give you few recommendations.

Cerro Catedral in Bariloche - Really fun, varied runs and a great place to learn. You can rent gear at the mountain.
Los Penitentes - Backcountry mecca near Mendoza. Hike in and shred perfect powder stashes. Consider a guide to start.
Chapelco - Best for steeps and challenges. Just outside San Martin de los Andes.

Conditions are generally great November through July. Pack extra layers as weather can change quickly.

Hey, thanks for the recommendations! They sound awesome, especially Cerro Catedral. I'm definitely adding it to my list. Have you had any experience with guided tours at any of these places? My friend recommended this one https://gowithguide.com/argentina but I'm still open to other options. Thanks again! :)

I used them for my Mexico tour back in January. They are quite reliable. If you want an alternate option, there are a few Facebook groups for guides. You can check over there as well.
