Bariloche is located in the heart of Argentina's Patagonia and serves as the gateway to the ski area "Gran Catedral". A short eight miles away, the resort offers frequent service to and from town. No other Argentinean ski area can match Bariloche in nightlife, dining, cinemas, theater, or its eight discos and a casino. The first of four chairlifts swings skiers up from the base of station at 3,200 feet to the Plateau, which sits at 4,000 feet.
At Bariloche you'll discover that more challenging skiing can be found around the Piedra del Condor summit, or the Condor of Stone. Here skiers and boarders will find wide-open, above treeline snow fields and long gullies. Bariloche offers terrain for all levels of ability. The new La Laguna lift expansion has increased the uphill capacity to 20,000 person per hour uphill. The chairlift accesses off-piste, challenging chutes and bowls.Make this fantasy South America ski vacation a reality and call, or chat with, one of Ski.com's complimentary, knowledgeable Mountain Vacation Specialists.
