Ushuaia – Ski in Argentina
This September CASA Tours heads to the End of the World to visit Tierra del Fuego and Ushuaia for a 7 day tour including 5 days of skiing and snowboarding at Cerro Castor and the surrounding mountains.
This tour is based out of the port city of Ushuaia on the shores of the Beagle Channel. Depending on snow and weather conditions backcountry enthusiasts have the option to tour on Glacier Martial, which rises 1000 meters directly above town and looks out toward the passage to Antartica. Cerro Castor ski center offers plenty of inbounds terrain to explore via lifts and often hosts international ski teams gearing up for the next season. Guests also have the option to visit Tierra del Fuego National Park or a take a catamaran and cruise the Beagle Channel.
