Aconcagua Ice Cream Dream Team celebrates!

Hola friends, family and loved ones!

Our fearless team took in a local vineyard today after a delightful brunch. Then we all got together for one last great meal of a traditional Argentinian grill. Lots of meat and good drink. Though it was a great night we were sadden to say our goodbyes. Fortunately there is talk already about getting together soon for a rendezvous in a remote location on the other side of the world….the adventure continues! Thanks for joining us on Alpine Ascents’s last Aconcagua climb of the season. We had a wonderful time.

All our best,
Carole and Vern Tejas

Aconcagua Team Ice Scream Returns to Mendoza

Friends, family and loved ones,

‘Twas a big day for the Ice cream dream team as we departed base camp ⛺ and hiked out of the mountains and back to civilization.

We took another photo at the same sign we started at so you can compare before and after details. It was a fine day for trekking and we were allowed a final glimpse of the summit from afar. It’s hard to believe we were just up there less than 24 hours ago.

And now for some serious showers and some well deserved rest and recuperation.

All our best, Carole and Vern Tejas

Team Ice Cream on the Summit of Aconcagua!

Exceeded expectations. Very professional. All camps and lodging met or exceeded my expectations. The tents were brand new. Food and group gear were excellent. I am a fan of AAI and will share my opinion when given the chance.

  • Single Wall Tents – Condensation Factories

    Most tent manufacturers these days offer a superlight, two pound (or less!) tent. These tents are simple to setup, occupy a very small footprint, and again – weigh in at about or under two pounds. When choosing a tent, it’s easy to focus on those factors and arrive at the conclusion that a single-walled shelter […]

  • Alpine Start Breakfast

    When summit morning arrives, it’s important to move efficiently through packing, preparation, and last but not least – breakfast! Mike Hawkins talks through a few of the foods we like to eat for quick fuel on alpine start mornings. Whether it’s midnight or 3:00am, these options are our go-to fast breakfasts.
