Patagoniatiptop testimonials – what our clients think
Unforgetable day in La Vallée Blanche with fabulous Federico.
Had a truly amazing day skiing La Vallée Blanche with 2 friends guided by Frederico.
He was calm, clear, and appropriately directional as we descended the arrête roped up. Once past the death defying drop, we all relaxed into an entertaining group, with good repartee, skiing nicely chosen route at perfectly judged speed (for us) until we got to the lovely steps!!!
Thanks Frederico. I’d book to do this with you again without a second thought.

Absolutely fantastic week in the Chamonix Valley ….Ella is an amazing teacher/coach. She is very good at getting you to identify your own issues and always has a variety of ideas for helping to you get to a solution.
At the end of the week I realised just how logical a progression we had been on and how effectively the learning points had been subtly embedded. We also had fantastic fun….it’s great to discover you are never too “mature” to learn and improve!

Special thanks to Federico for guiding us on the Monte Rosa Massif. The glaciers are incredibly beautiful and humbling and Federico was the perfect guide to take us through safely and confidently. His patience and mountaineering expertise are unparalleled. We ended the week with two days of rock climbing in Chamonix and Federico knew the prefect places to go in the valley for great climbing, views and shady climbing in the hot weather. I highly recommend Federico to guide you on any mountain adventure! I’m already trying to figure out when we can get back for another trip with Patagoniatiptop!

What a fantastic day with Fede and Ella skiing the legendary Vallée blanche. We could fully enjoy every minute – thanks to the professional, friendly and safe guiding. The Vallée blanche with Patagoniatiptop should definitely be on every skiers bucking list!

Our guide Ella Alpiger was exceptional! She was highly professional, personable, funny, informative, organized, and always did everything to ensure the safety and comfort of every client; we would trek with her again anywhere – she truly made the 10 days feel very special.

Back home in Switzerland I can just repeat what I mentioned yesterday already. Thanks a lot for providing this in-depth mountaineering experience to me!

Ella it has been great to ski with you again and I feel the plan is developing.
Nigel Round, Skiing Chamonix
A big thank you with a big hug for the magic days we spent together with you. I think the balance between the different trainings was good and I really got a very healthy and super good training out of the camp.
Tom Brandt, Skirace Camp Lenzerheide
It was an amazing “almost summer” skitour with Federico to the Pico Argentiono (Tronador) via Ref. Otto Meiling. Two unforgettable and really well prepared days in Argentina/Bariloche. Many thanks to Frederico & Ella for their effort to make it happen. It was great!!!

- My great group of hiker mates
- The endless gorgeous vistas unfolding every day
- The consistently awesome local wine
- Picnics that were infused with yumminess
- Napping at lunch time
- Drinking delicious water right from the stream
- Silently singing “I am Climbing…the Stairway to Heaven” every day

I have been on a skitouring trip with Federico and Ella in Chile and Argentina. We did Lonquimay, Llaima, Villarica, Tronador, and others.
It was a pleasure to be on the tour with them. They know the whole area very good, and we could find good tours and were able to adjust our programm to actual conditions very well!
Everything was very well guided and organised.
Many Thnaks for this great experience!
