is high on the list. Catedral
is hard to beat. Great terrain for beginners to experts, fun tree skiing, epic views of surrounding national park, Nahuel Huappi

ski resort is great for families, and friends looking for a taste of the good Patagonia lifestyle. The back side if Chapelco
is for advanced and experts.
A ski resort in Argentina that receives little foreign traffic also has become on of our favorites due to awesome backcountry access; Cerro Bayo
. The small boutique ski resort offers good intermediate to advanced skiing, including great tree runs and open bowls. The real gem is a short 15 minute hike to a flat ridge line where you can access some truly amazing side country or head off deeper into the expansive backcountry terrain.
