Argentina Patagonia for Skiers Overview

If you have been considering a ski trip to Argentina and you can't decide which resorts to visit, this could be the one for you.

This 12 Day tour for skiers only visits all of Patagonia's largest ski areas as well as visiting many of its spectacular towns such as Bariloche and Villa la Angostura while staying in beautiful boutique hosterias (small hotels). With travelling to three different resorts, you will experience Patagonia’s unparalleled scenic landscapes while enjoying the Andean snow that has made it world famous.

In the evenings you will be dining at handpicked restaurants that have been chosen for their quality ,variety and setting to provide you with a culinary experience of the Latin flare that Argentina brings to their food !

DreamSki Adventures is the foremost specialist in guided ski holidays in South America since 2004 and is able to offer you a great Argentina experience on and off the snow.

You will be in the good hands of experienced, personable instructor-guides who know Argentina, the skiing, and the language. You won't need to worry about language or cultural barriers or the challenging logistics of traveling in Latin America. Instead you'll be immersed in a rich culture while discovering and experiencing all that Argentina has to offer.

On the slopes you will be offered the option of ski improvement while you discover the slopes of Argentina and its abundant terrrain. We utilize a “guided instruction” approach that allows you to maximize your time on the slopes, while being coached to allow you to ski better and go places you may not have gone on your own, and improve your powder skiing, all in a fun and safe environment.

You will have the opportunity to receive as much or as little professional instruction (depending on what you personally desire), to allow you to get the most out of what Argentina offers.

Day 1
Arrival into Bariloche. Meet your guides and fellow adventures. Enjoy your first Argentine “copa de vino” while travelling to nearby Villa La Angostura, a picturesque lakeside ski town just below Cerro Bayo Ski Resort. Savor your first Argentine meal and then off to bed for tomorrow’s first day of adventure!

Day 2-3
Two days skiing at Cerro Bayo Ski Resort which towers over the famous Lago (lake) Nahuel Huapi offering sweeping views of this majestic 100 km long lake. Cerro Bayo offers terrain for all skiers from steep terrain with fresh tracks for those want a short hike, to long lengthy groomers. Get comfortable on your skis, while enjoying the warmth of this friendly and relaxed ski centre.

Day 4
Travel day south to the Patagonian town of Esquel. Along the way visit the hippy town of El Bolson for lunch and its colourful artisan market. Esquel is the gateway community for La Hoya Ski Resort and has the definite feel of Patagonia with light winds ever present down the dusty streets. We spend the evenings here sharing matte and enjoying the Patagonian gaucho hospitality.

Day 5-7
Three days skiing at La Hoya with its excellent off-piste terrain and exceptionally dry Patagonian powder. The name derives from the mountain shape, which is a wide circular glacial basin that offers great sweeping steeps and fresh snow. La Hoya's uncrowded slopes, varied terrain and location in the heart of the Patagonian Andes make it a truly unique Argentine ski destination. On the afternoon of the third day we travel to Bariloche. Day 8

Day 8-11
4 days of skiing at the largest ski area in Argentina, Cerro Catedral Ski Resort, on the edge of the vibrant city of Bariloche. This modern ski area includes over 3,000 acres of in-bounds terrain and 39 lifts! The Snow Gods often bless us with deep powder days here.

In the evenings, we will take advantage of Bariloche’s great nightlife and wealth of restaurants offering local Patagonian trout, salmon, and its famous beef. Also there are ample shopping opportunities at great prices.

Transfers to airport for your flight home.
