Finally we end up at the sleepy lakeside village of La Angostura and Cerro Bayo. Situated on the north shoreline of Lago Nahuel Huapi, Cerro Bayo is full of Argentine charm, few crowds, and lots of very playful terrain for all levels.
Join us for a skiing, snowboarding, and cultural adventure through a spectacular part of Patagonia, and experience the best of Argentina in true CASA Tours style.
Guests must arrange flights to San Carlos de Bariloche airport from Buenos Aires. Here they are met by CASA guides and taken to your lakeside Bariloche accommodation. Tonight we have a trip orientation and welcome dinner at one of Bariloche’s local restaurants. Early arrivals are welcome.
We spend 2 days at Cerro Catedral, a modern ski center with a distinctly European feel featuring over 3,000 acres of on piste terrain, extensive lift-accessed backcountry steeps, and some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable. The Powder Gods have been very good to us here. In the evenings we experience Bariloche’s lively nightlife and excellent eateries featuring local Patagonian trout, lamb and beef to go with its fabulous vino.
Depending on weather conditions we have the opportunity for a morning ski at Cerro Catedral before traveling north along the Rio Limay to San Martin de los Andes, a classy Argentine lakeside retreat and the base for Chapelco ski center. For 2 days we ski/ride this family orientated mountain with surprisingly good tree skiing and backcountry access as well as gentle cruisers, mellow open bowls and plenty of fresh tracks for all. Our elegant hotel is downtown close to all the evening action.
Enjoy a relaxed morning in San Martin before traveling to La Angostura and our final ski destination, Cerro Bayo. A small, ‘boutique’ ski resort, Cerro Bayo offers spectacular vistas of Lago Nahuel Huapi and the surrounding mountains of Argentina’s 1st national park. For those eager a short hike along the summit ridge gains access to superb powder terrain. A celebratory farewell asado ends our tour in true Argentine tradition.
After breakfast, we travel back along the shores of Lago Nahuel Huapi to San Carlos de Bariloche airport in time for guests returning flights to Buenos Aires.
