If you are heading to the Bariloche area this winter and you are in search of powder, you cant go past a couple of days of Cat Skiing at Baguales Mountain Reserve or mix it up with some heli skiing and touring. The rusting Baguales Lodge is a quintessential part of the experience as is the cuisine & service.

Baguales Mountain Lodge

“Baguales” means feral or wild, and whilst wild horses may have once roamed the lands, there is definitely nothing feral about staying at the lodge. The main Baguales Lodge offers upscale accommodation in large double bedrooms with private ensuite. The lodge has sophisticated furniture, luxury rugs, a billiards table, and a large open fireplace as the centre-piece for après banter. There are also two self-contained cabins.

Dinner usually consists of a very hearty meal that features meat (no surprise there) or fish that can be accompanied with some renowned Argentinian wine.


The lodge is beautifully rustic...

...Cozy private & shared bedrooms...

...and lovely communal areas.
