Skiing in Bariloche

Winter in Bariloche is synonymous with skiing. Plainly put, winter sports rule the day in Bariloche come winter (June to October), and these attract South Americans, including many Brazilians as well as Americans and Europeans, looking for what to many of us is “summer snow.”

The closest ski resort to Bariloche is Cerro Catedral, which is just a 20-minute drive from the city. Slightly further afield, is Cerro Bayo, which is outside of slightly more exclusive Villa de La Angostura. For those who don’t mind more of a drive, a couple of hours north of the city, near San Martín de Los Andes, which is at the end of the seven lakes circuit, is Cerro Chapelco, and south of Bariloche in somewhat more earthy El Bolsón is the small ski area of Perito Moreno.

Of these, the biggest is Cerro Catedral, which was two different ski resorts that were joined together, and is therefore the largest of the lot, with almost 3,000 acres of skiable terrain.

The advantages of skiing in this area are the relatively easy connection to North America and cooler temperatures (than for example, skiing near Mendoza, Argentina or Santiago, Chile), which puts good snow on the mountain at lower altitudes, at which physical activity is easier.
