“Cerro Castor informa que el viernes 8 de julio abrirá sus puertas en forma parcial. Los medios de elevación que estarán habilitados son: A1 Telesilla del Bosque y dos Magic Carpets del sector principiante.

Así mismo, las pistas habilitadas serán: El Cóndor de 480 a base y las pistas del sector principiante: Castorcitos I y II. La próxima pista a abrir será Halcón Peregrino de 480 a base en los días siguientes.

Se esperan más nevadas para esta semana lo que nos permitirá evaluar la apertura de más pistas y medios de elevación.

Las bajas temperaturas nos posibilitan continuar con la fabricación de nieve inducida por los cañones.

Debido a esta situación, comunicamos que el pase Castor Mayor tendrá un valor diario de $300 (pesos trescientos) y Castor Menor de $210 (pesos doscientos diez). Los pases se emitirán por día únicamente hasta tanto se normalice la situación en la montaña.

Esperamos que sea una gran temporada para todos los esquiadores y visitantes en el centro de esquí más austral del mundo .” – Cerro Castor, today

Cerro Castor, today

This basically translates to:  Cerro Castor will open on July 8th with the Del Bosque chairlift and 2 Magic Carpets.  Trails open will be:  El Condor from 480m to the base and the beginner area trails:  Castorcitos I and II.  We’re hoping for more snow so we can open more terrain soon.  We’re making as much snow as we can.  Day tickets are $300 pesos for adults and $210 for kids.  These prices will last until we open more terrain.
