Bariloche, Argentina Conditions Report: Damn Fun Dense Powder Day Up High

Miles Clark | | Conditions ReportConditions Report

Cerro Catedral ski resort in Bariloche, Argentina was damn fun up high today.

Down low, the big storm that closed the resort yesterday dropped mostly rain with a dusting of snow on top.

Up high, there was up to 70cms (28″) of dense, new snow and it was damn fun.

You definitely stayed on top and could flow fast.

Catedral was closed yesterday due to big wind and a big storm.  Snow levels were pretty high with this storm.

I got on the chair right at 9am and hike up to the top of Nubes and got in 2 untouched powder runs on Nubes before the chair opened.

After those 2 runs, I zipped over to backcountry zone “La Laguna” and got in 3 more fun powder runs.

Today was sunny and cool in the morning with a stiff, biting breeze. 

The breeze quickly let up and the day felt pretty warm by midday.

The snow was dense and deep and wind pressed up high.  As you got lower, the snow got thinner and heavier and catchier.

Overall, it was a very fun day of skiing some of the classic lines up high at Catedral.
