Skiing in Patagonia!

Well, big news this time. I’m going to Argentina, today! It’s still quite surreal for me even as I sit at the train station waiting for the airport shuttle to pick me up, but I’m really on the way to a trip of a life time: Patagonia, Argentina. Argentina has been a country high on my list of places to go ever since I was looking at studying in Buenos Aires for a year during 2002. But then I founded a company, the Freeride Center Sölden, and cancelled my year abroad. Now my skis are going to take me to this amazing country of wild mountain landscapes, beautiful lakes and of Malbec and ample quantities of meat. Based in Bariloche, Patagonia, I’m going to live in an outdoor sports paradise offering not only great freeride terrain in the Cerro Catedral ski area, but amazing climbing and trekking as well. The beautiful volcanoes surrounding Bariloche offer amazing ski touring later in the season and we are also planning some first descents in a secret and very remote location.
