Cerro Catedral in Bariloche, Argentina has had a stellar early season with big snow, low snow, and cold temps. The town of Bariloche experienced its coldest recorded temperature of -13.72F on July 16th.
We arrived in Bariloche a few days ago very stoked to be able to ski top to bottom (there isn’t always snow to the bottom here).
Today was fun. A few inches of new snow, low visibility, very few people, and many a creamy turn.
2,000-vertical-foot laps off the Nubes chair was damn fun all day. Creamy.
La Laguna was the best with deep wind blow snow. The snow was deep, but we weren’t penetrating much. The snow was soft on top, but we were only sinking in a few inches.
This is just the snow that we need here right now: wet snow that sticks to everything.
It’s still pretty low tide all over the mountain so bring on the snow.
The forecast looks snowy for the next week, which we love.
