Ski touring in Iceland

The Trollaskagi or Troll Peninsula is located in northern Iceland, in the Akureyri region. it is an extraordinary land, made up of vast mountain areas which are highly interesting for ski mountaineering lovers: the altitudes are vaying from 800 to 1400 m asl, the average difficulties are BS level on the classic scale with BSA level variations and exciting couloirs for steep ski lovers . We have suggested some objectives, all of them with an easy road access and all of them profitable in terms of descent and panorama.

After years of traveling around the world, he gives birth to the idea of Snowder® which, in addition to being a brand, aims to be a "way" of travelling, where the practice of a sport such as ski mountaineering becomes an excellent "excuse" to travel, a reason to discover distant lands – even better if little frequented – new people, snow and unknown landscapes.

    Ski mountaineering on the volcanoes of Chile

    An exciting journey to the volcanoes of Araucanía and the Region of Los Lagos. Chile, with its 4350 km of length, extends from the border with Peru to the Tierra del Fuego. There you can find the most diverse landscapes and all types of climate: from the driest desert on Earth - the Atacama Desert - to the glaciers in Patagonia; from the mountains over 7000 meters high in the Andes to the Pacific Ocean. The central part of the country between Temuco and Puerto Mott is full of renowned National Parks and there you can find the best favorable conditions for ski mountaineering experiences. This area lends itself to amazing trips to the volcanoes at altitudes of around 3000 m. Those trips can be carried out in a single day.

    Ski mountaineering in Patagonia

    Patagonia is "a magical land for mountaineers and travelers", quoted a beautiful book by S. Metzeltin and G. Buscaini. It couldn’t be otherwise, with its spaces, its lights, its orange granite towers. Our ski mountaineering trip in Patagonia offers a reinterpretation of the southern landscape so dear to the collective imagination: September occurs at the same time with the end of the southern winter and in Patagonia you will find very few people; even places like El Chalten, now devoted to international tourism, in this season is cleared out. This allows you to find those postcard views as they were until not many years ago. From Bariloche to El Chalten first you will ski among the colorful granite spires of Cerro Cathedral, then you will cross the mythical Carretera Austral: basically, you will descend from Bariloche to El Chalten along a notoriously spectacular route that runs from north to south the Chilean fjords. In this trip you will have the opportunity to make any exploratory ski mountaineering experiences (in a very real sense, because there you will have almost no activity reviews): however it will be a trip with unique views, that will allow you to return to Argentina through the pass of Chile Chico and then to El Chalten to ski in front of Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre. In order to carry out this travel project, we won’t make any hotel reservation during the middle part of the tour (despite having already identified and notified the available facilities) in order to have maximum freedom of movement and decide day by day where to stay overnight: a somewhat adventurous journey therefore, which will involve all participants in the creation of the program!
