Ski Argentina – Powder Skiing in Bariloche
Steamboat Powdercats, in cooperation with our friends at Sass Global Travel (SGT), are proud to offer custom, hosted ski and snowboarding adventures to Cerro Catedral in Bariloche, Argentina.
Every August, members of our staff host a small group of SPC guests and friends into the backcountry of one of South America’s most cherished powder stashes This location offers some of the best skiing in South America (think big, above treeline alpine turns and nice tree skiing for storming days). We utilize the SGT’s intimate knowledge of the local terrain and conditions to tailor each days skiing and riding to the desires of the group. Due to the lift accessed, hike-to nature of this off-piste terrain, guests can expect to have hikes of roughly 15-30 minutes to access the ski zones. With that said, there is plenty of in-bounds terrain that we take advantage of, especially if it’s snowing or weather conditions do not permit us to get into the backcountry.
We ask that all guests be strong Level II or III type skiers and snowboarders, based on our ratings at SPC. Click here to review these ability levels on our site if you have any questions of where you may fit in.
Skiing/riding aside, the Bariloche area offers amazing sightseeing and cultural opportunities. The beautiful city of San Carlos de Bariloche situated along the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi, is a charming mix of Patagonian and European architecture, food and cultural offerings, including amazing wines, meats and chocolate. We typically set aside some time for trips into town, whether it be a full day excursion along the lake, or a microbrew tour in the evening after skiing.
To assist with inquires, SGT has developed a specific page on their website for this package. Click here to review details from August 2012 Signature Session with Steamboat Powdercats.
