Adam Stern

Creator/Guide


Growing up in Winthrop, Washington, skiing has always been a part of Adam's life. He learned to ski at the age of three when his father, a local ski patroller, would take him to work with him. A ski instructor at the age of 15, Adam has many years of professional experience and training and has been an off-piste guide in Argentina since 2005. Adam is also a film major from the University of Colorado and worked for Warren Miller Entertainment from 2001-2005. He now lives permanently in Mendoza and can't think of any logical reason to ever leave.

Adelina worked as a ski instructor at S.C. de Bariloche from 2004 until 2008, when she decided to leave the southern ski region of Argentina to explore the higher ranges of Mendoza’s Andes. As with so many others, there was no going back. In Mendoza she has summited numerous peaks including Aconcagua and, like everyone else at Oso Loco, is a true and dedicated professional.
