This location at Cerro Catedral offers some of the best backcountry skiing and splitboarding in South America (see images of terrain on this page). We utilize an SGT guide for their intimate knowledge of the local terrain and tailor each days skiing and riding to the desires of our group. Due to the lift accessed, hike-to nature of this off-piste terrain, guests can expect to have hikes of roughly 15-45 minutes to access the 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.
Along with the lift accessed backcounty at Cerro Catedral, we will also schedule at least 1 day of skiing and riding at an alternative destination. IN 2016 we went to Baguales Mountain Reserve. This Patagonian snowcat operation is located 1 1/2 hour from the base of Catedral and offers big mountain type terrain, a luxurious lodge and views that will blow your mind.
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, chocolate and brewerys. 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.
