SASS Argentina is an unreal opportunity for USASA athletes to push their skiing or riding in an alternative direction during the summer months. We offer competitive athletes the ability to take their skills into big mountain terrain in full-on winter conditions and build upon their foundation with avalanche awareness education, splitboarding and skinning clinics, line selection practice, backcountry jump building sessions, and much more. Skiing and snowboarding has evolved immensely and we offer a unique platform for backcountry learning and progression in a ridiculously fun environment with some of the world’s top pros, guides and coaches.
We have a long history of USASA athletes joining us at SASS Argentina, building new skills and pushing their limits while immersed in the culture of Argentina. We pride ourselves in offering a pathway for accomplished skiers and snowboarders looking to take the typically prohibitive step into the backcountry. SASS Argentina is designed to introduce the backcountry to the next generation of skiers and riders that will continue to be on the cutting edge of progression and be prepared for a lifetime in the mountains.
Athletes will have the opportunity to shred in small groups led by some of the sport’s most progressive professionals and guides. Our goal is to make sure that everyone leaves with more knowledge of the backcountry as well as the skills necessary to continue to push in that direction. Our guides include industry pros who have moved from the competition circuit into the big mountains, continued a career in front of the camera and then worked their way into the guiding realm. With seemingly limitless daily options, you can spend your days learning how to build the best backcountry jumps in the right locations for practicing new tricks into pow, or search out natural features in big mountain terrain to practice line selection and air awareness in a whole new way. You can choose to push farther into the mountains by taking part in a touring clinic or take a big step in the right direction by participating in an AIARE Level I avalanche safety course. We have professional photographers and videographers on staff to not just capture the action, but also build experience in front of the camera. All this in the middle of summer in the freeride playground that is the Andes of Patagonia, Argentina.
USASA athletes are invited to join us at a $300 DISCOUNT. Simply fill out an inquiry and we will be in touch to answer any questions and make it happen.

No matter what your competitive discipline, SASS Argentina will build on your skills. Athletes with backgrounds in freeride, halfpipe, boardercross, moguls, racing and park have been perfect for our program and have had great success.
We are stoked to have USASA athletes of all ages. This may be a “camp”, but it is more about the vibe than the age bracket. We rent out an entire lodge right at the base of the mountain. We also have separate apartment options on the compound perfect for families or adults looking to have a bit more privacy. Additionally, we have special deals for teams that include discounts for coaches bringing multiple athletes.
