Location is beautiful, breathless views. Needs urgent care. We went for a ski trip and our teacher, Fernando Pastor (escuela Xtreme) saved our vacation. Few snow showed that the Cerro doesn't marks prosperly rocks in the tracks. No safety nets when the rocks are just in the middle of the tracks. Lifts need maintenance (sits torned all over).

Just outside of San Carlos de Bariloche in Villa Cerro Catedral. Great ski location with great runs. When the snow is weak you still have plenty of other options in and around Bariloche. The views from the mountain are very special. The season starts in July and ends in October. End of August seems to have the best snow.

The view, the natural advantages of the chain. It needs snow machines on higher places of el cerro in order to have more good snow days in a row.

Catedral is probably the largest ski resort in Latin America. That is nice, but it has a price when only one sector of the mountain is open. One morning I had to wait 1:20 hour in the queue for the sextuple chairlift. Cheating in the queue is apparently a sport as popular as skiing here. Unlike other resoorts in Argentina... More

I was very impressed how quickly the system they have in place moves people. Once we left the main lift, from the the lift ticketing area, we spent the entire day up on the various mountains, not returning to the base lift until we were ready to leave for the day at 5:00PM. Great views and beautiful trails. They is... More

This was our first time skiing in S America. Catedral is the largest resort in S America. Our experience was very mixed, first of all we did not have much snow. The resort does not seem to manufacture much snow so the result was the bottom half of the mountain was without snow and the top had enough to ski... More

we went to ski last year and we saw a lot of change. super bad maintenance (problems with the lifts, runs were not groomed as before, long lines to use the lifts), also costs increased a lot and today it costs the same that to ski in the USA or Europe. very sad to see that since the view surrounded...
