I have gone on a handful of trips to South America and Japan with PowderQuest and the experience has been consistently excellent. This time, it was a small group of 2 splitboarders and Maxi, our guide, did a great job of finding uphill routes and downhill lines suitable for splitboarders. Off the hill, logistics were effortless, with Maxi picking us up at the Bariloche airport and driving us around. Accommodations were comfortable in Villa La Angostura, Bariloche and Baguales. Baguales was especially beautiful, a fantastic mountain lodge in the middle of nowhere, fully staffed with fantastic food and a beautiful lodge with all the amenities, not to mention the endless touring terrain. After stupidly forgetting my boots in the lobby of the Bariloche hotel the morning we arrived at Baguales, Maxi and the Baguales staff quickly found me a spare of boots and arranged to pick up my boots, so I didn’t miss a day of touring and had my boots that night. Just an example of how they take care of you.

I wouldn’t hesitate got recommend PowderQuest to anyone, and look forward to the next trip!

Bariloche Backcountry Skiing + Snowboarding Adventure Tour

Just finished the Bariloche Backcountry Tour!
It was an amazing experience!
We were only a small group of 2 Splitboarders on this trip plus our guide Maxi.
So first of all it's so great that with powderquest the tour will still take place even if there aren't many bookings.
I highly appreciate that!
Since we were only a small group, we were really flexible with decision making in the backcountry.
Our guide maxi was awesome! Jeff and I were both splitboarders so he always choose terrain that fits us best he even took the wide skis to make better skintracks for us!
The ability level in our group was on point, so we did as much hiking and riding as we could fit in a day!
So we used each day to the fullest.
It was a difficult season snow wise but maxi our guide made sure that he got as to best snow that was a available at the time.
Just before we went to Baguales we got lucky with fresh snow, and there we were riding powder every day!
The Higlight of this trip were definitely the days at baguales not only because of the fresh snow, but the all over experience we had there.
The Mountain hut there is just something else, excellent service, great food, hot tub and endless terrain to hike and ride!
I only wish that we would have spend more days at baguales then in the resorts, I could easily spend a whole week just at this place! With maxi guiding, riding awesome lines in thid place is guarenteed!
To sum it up, this tour was a great experience I am super happy and really enjoyed it and I am alredy looking forward to my next trip with powderquest, next time hopefully a full week at baguales 😁

When you put money down to travel halfway to the other end of the globe, you really want to have a satisfying experience. If you have the trip of a lifetime, well that's even better. The guides at PowderQuest (Mo and Vicho on this trip) knew the terrain like the back of their hand. On a day when it looked like there was no fresh to be found, they came through and found steep, challenging, and powder packed runs. I almost felt sorry for the other people at the resort riding down the wind scoured slopes in the fog. I said almost. The terrain in Argentina is unlike anywhere else in the world, and it is so expansive that it can be really intimidating, which is why I'm so thankful for the expert guides. They made everything easy and kept us in the loop regarding plans for each day, as weather in the Andes can be unpredictable. The highlight of the trip, however, had to be the two days riding at Baguales. The lodge is quaint and homey, and having private access in this area is nothing short of amazing. The trip to the lodge is an adventure in itself, driving through rivers before transitioning to the snowcat to take you the rest of the way to the lodge. We had great food, great wine, great hosts and accommodations, and absolutely stellar guides. All in all, there is nothing I can complain about with regards to this trip. My party arrived several days early to spend more time doing touristy things (read: eating meat and drinking), which I definitely recommend as Argentina is an incredible place.

PowderQuest is the best! The Argentina Snow Adventure has awesome terrain, world-class guides, fabulous food and great fun. Cat skiing at Baguales is a highlight and is not to be missed. Scenery on this trip is excellent, and the towns visited offer a great Argentinian cultural experience. I have been on multiple trips with PowderQuest and highly recommend their services!
