The SASS Argentina Session 5 VIP Week is a small group experience for adult clients, blending professional on-mountain guiding with upgraded lodging and independent dining. All apartments feature kitchens with a choice of shared or private bedrooms. Unlike other SASS sessions, breakfast is the only meal included giving clients the opportunity to explore additional dining options both throughout the base area and in the town of Bariloche.

Session 5: VIP Week is built for clients seeking upgraded or private lodging and a social, self-directed “adult” experience without the camp-style vibe of the Lodge.
