The Magic of Refugio Frey

Frey is the ski and climbing mecca in Argentina and one of the most magical places I’ve ever been to. Seb Michaud and his camera team from Focus Production arrived just after one of the first snow storms of the season to film here with Niki Salencon and me. We set out from the Cerro Catedral ski resort which provides the easiest access. Unfortunately, we weren’t alone at the refuge since it is hugely popular now with a growing following of freeriders and ski mountaineers in Bariloche. This and prevailing weather conditions didn’t allow us to nail a dream line, but that’s life in the mountains and I hope to return again within the month to ski some of the many lines we saw. Check out my facebook album here for some photos.
