Powder Triangle Overview

The 9 day Powder Triangle journey is through Argentina’s 7 Lakes region featuring amazing scenery, cuisine, culture and some of the best skiing and snowboarding in Argentina. A classic South American road trip, this adventure travels through a beautiful part of Patagonia and its crystal clear rivers, glacial lakes, volcanic peaks, mystical forests, and expansive mountain terrain. This trip is a great mix of resort skiing and snowboarding, introductory backcountry terrain, and limitless touring opportunities.

The tour begins in Bariloche, the adventure capital of Argentina and home resort of Cerro Catedral. Steeped in rich mountain culture and a very distinct European feel, Catedral is Argentina’s largest resort with thousands of acres to explore both in bounds and hike-to access. Granite spires pierce the ridgelines and spectacular views of the massive Tronador volcano and Lake Nahuel Huapi, make Catedral one of the most scenic ski and snowboard destinations in the world.

Next you will travel along the Limay River to San Martin de los Andes, a favorite Argentine mountain and lake retreat, and the slopes of Chapelco. Chapelco is a very family friendly resort with super fun tree skiing and excellent off piste options.

Finally you will end up at the sleepy lakeside village of Villa 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 CASA for a skiing, snowboarding, and cultural adventure through a spectacular part of Patagonia, and experience the best of Argentina in true CASA Tours style!
