Catedral ski resort in Bariloche, Argentina has had a bumpy start. They opened, then had to close again after a big rain storm. Today, it’s lookin’ like things are shaping up again.
New snow has fallen and the upper mountain and things are lookin’ ok up there. Still looks like there is a ways to go before people are truly freeriding, but at least you can hit the groomers and there is a bit of pow.
Not a lot is open just yet this season. Today, the gondola is open along with Diente de Caballo chair, Triple Park chair, Condor III, the Sextuple, Lynch, Punta Nevada, La Hoya, and Princessa I & II. That’s not bad for June. The key is to get Nubes open. If Nubes is open, you can ski hard all day. If it’s not, it’s a bit of a toss up.
We’ll have a reporter stationed in Bariloche beginning in the end of July. He’s waiting for things to fill in a bit.
When is the best time to go to South America anyway?
