There isn't any snow when I was there. View got a little bored after 30 minutes into the hike as scenes repeated itself. Probably my opinions would be different if there was snow.

We have no experience with snow and skiing. We had our first class the day before. 3 out 6 dropped out skiing. Therefore we decided to go for Piedras Blancas. Greate decision. We all had a great time. First, you need to arrange transportation. We called them and they picked up us in our rented house and paid in the... More

We went hiking here our first day in Bariloche. The trail is poorly maintained, dusty and steep. Decent view from the ridge. We did not hike all the way to the coffee shop on top.

If you have kids, got for it. Hint: at the ticket sales they tell you kids below 5 can only stay at the bottom at "kids yard", but we saw 3-4 years old down hill either on parents' lap or by themselves with parents holding the seldge handle once in a while. Thus, buy your 3 yrs old kid a... More

if you are going to Bariloche and your kids haven't ski in their whole life it would be good to have at least one day for Piedras Blancas. they will love it. Because different from ski or snowboard they will slide fast on their first downhill. the place doesn't seems to be very organized as there was a long line,... More

Maybe I was unlucky but there were huge lines and lots of mud. The place is nice and with a lot of snow would probably be nice!

This place is way over priced with nothing to do, I wonder are all the negative reviews yanked off here, or does no one take the time to let people know the truth about places to visit while in Bariloche. You can do tons of things with out paying exsorbant amounts to tour guides and lifts, etc. Rent a car,... More

Piedras Blancas is a snow park where you can do Trineos at 5 or 6 different slopes. It is located on the top of Cerro Otto next to downtown. Many people think it has a connection with the rotary restaurant at the top of the same mountain, but it does not have! It is a very funny place and I... More
