Portillo

“We are not the sort of people to spend all that money on an airfare just to go to one place only, so the thought of staying here for 7 days straight, in on Saturday out on Saturday, didn't sit right ... but we did it anyway, and we included a day trip into Argentina to see Mt. Aconcagua, and a day in Santiago on the end of the trip.   I must say, I enjoyed every day skiing at Portillo,...” --emjaynie

Valle Nevado Ski Resort

Valle Nevado Ski Resort

“ We visited Valle Nevado on Sept 4, 2012.  It was a miserable experience, mainly due to the actions of Valle Nevado ski school.     Just a general comment on skiing in Chile:  Chile does not cater to day skiers.  The resorts are built and designed around destination skiers that stay in their hotels.  Consequently the service towards the day skiers is bad. Day...” --Carrflor

“ Catedral is the premier ski area in the Bariloche region.  Catedral has a solid infrastructure with a small town at the base of the ski area.  Lifts are mostly fixed grip but there sophisticated lifts including a Gondola, a six man express and a tram.  Most pistes are groomed nightly and there is plenty of off piste skiing as well.  Views of the six lakes from the top are fantastic. ” --nathanvg

Cerro Catedral

Cerro Catedral

Speaking about San Carlos de Bariloche means speaking about Cerro Catedral, which stands for “Mount Cathedral” in Spanish due to the resemblance of its summits to the towers of a medieval temple. Its majesty is well-known by skiers from all round the world. Cerro Catedral, lying just 20 kilometers from the City of Bariloche, opens its gates with the first snowfalls for visitors...
