Some of Argentina’s best ski terrain is located in the lesser-known El Azufre valley. The valley hosts volcanos and peaks ranging from 10-13,000 feet with descents running over 5,000 vertical feet, all while receiving 450″+ of snow a year. Whether you are an advanced-intermediate skier who enjoys long cruiser runs, or an expert skier looking for new challenges, the El Azufre Valley features something to excite you.
Onsite, the dedicated aviation and guide team will take you into the mountains via helicopter or snowcat during inclement weather.
