Based at legendary ski resort Cerro Catedral near Bariloche, Argentina, SASS Argentina is based right at the foot of the mountain in their mountain lodge at base41. SASS backcountry trips are unique in the industry. Their goal is to not only show you the goods, taking you to some unreal places in the mountains each day, but also to teach you mountain sense, backcountry skills and self rescue. They even offer add ons like avalanche level 1 courses, apartment upgrades and photo packages. Their crew of guides have been honing their craft and local knowledge over years of guiding folks in the Argentinian Backcountry around Bariloche. They know the local terrain like the back of their hand. But more than that, they’re stoked to show you the goods and teach you tricks to keep you safe in the backcountry when you get home.

It’s all about fun at SASS, so their goal is to deal with all the logistics for you so all you have to do is enjoy the food, wine and the backcountry mountain experience. Transport from Bariloche, figuring out the mountain, meals and entertainment, nightly hot tubs; all are taken care of on these carefully planned trips. They even offer high end  from Jones Snowboards and Folsom Skis, both boutique brands offering some of the best products in the world.

Hang time. It was DEEP that day!

Why stress about logistics, travel, and then once you’re there, try to figure out where to go? SASS can take care of everything. All you need to do is show up.
