Cerro Perito Moreno, in El Bolson, Argentina is a great place. We have (double black diamond) FIS level groomers with very steep pitches (we call them the walls), tons of back country terrain as well... And the best, no lift lines!!!

Welcome!

I dream of returning to South America. I had a wonderful time there the two times I was there many moons ago.

Federico your website is top notch!

You are an M.D. as well? I like your skiing and could like learn allot from you.

And especially when backcountry skiing.

Please post allot and help us deepen the knowledge pool!

Somewhere good
We have many friends in Argentina and are glad to count Federico Wenzel amongst them. Patagonia is everything you may have heard and more.
You would be right to expect scenery and culture and good skiing, but it is the people who will leave the most lasting impression.
The steaks and Malbec will also prove memorable.
Hopefully, we can return this August.

Thanks a lot Tim! I really appreciate it! Yes, I'm a professional ski instructor AADIDESS (Argentinan ski instructors association) and a Medical Doctor specialized in occupational medicine.
I practice them both professions, but skiing is definitely my lifelong passion....
My website is my new project. And my main focus is to bring skiers from the whole world to get to know Patagonia, the scenery, the culture, the people and the skiing we have down here... As @pliny the elder said, we have excellent beef and Malbec here! but the best kept secret is the Patagonian Lamb... top notch!
I'm really excited to participate in this incredible forum, and contribute with my 2 cents!
There are very dedicated skiers down here, and we study technique thoroughly... Argentina instructors association is a very active ISIA member.
Feel free to contact me, I'm happy to help!

All the best!

Thanks a lot @pliny the elder ! I'm very glad to count on you as my friend too! I'm really looking forward to ski with you next summer (winter here)... I will make reservations in the best place here to have steaks and Argentinian malbec! And I'll cook some lamb over the fire for you guys too! just let me know when you are coming...

Take care!

I can’t recommend Patagonia highly enough. My wife and I in our pre-kids life, went in ‘99 all the way to Tierra del Fuego . Not easy to get all the way down there ( and I’m not a fan of the Santiago airport) but worth it - great people, great food, incredible scenery. Welcome @esteban525 !
