As it was my first skiing experience I was disappointed at lack of information and instructions, I also paid for a class beggining at 10 o'clock but i lost at least 40 minutes waiting to rent the ski equipment because it was a mess, very frustating. I had to reschedule the class and lost another hour.

There is literally NOTHING to do once you get there, if you are not a skier. We got a cab from downtown (120 pesos roundtrip) but saw dozens of people going up by foot (it is a super long walk uphill) and once they get there there is only a restaurant and nothing more. Snow is only present during the... More

This place is awesome if you're looking forward to experiencing snow sports. Either if you are a beginner or an experienced skier/snowboarder you'll find it amazing! The place has restaurants, warm places to relax, good restrooms and first-world equipments for rental. We loved it!!

The mountain and snow are excelent, but the problem is to arrive there. Crazy Drivers with their cars or vans running on the Snowy road and don't care about the passanger's security. Take care!!!!

Travelled to Ushuaia with my girlfriend to get to Patagonia and didn't expect to be able to go snowboarding. The season here lasts till quite late it seems since it's so far south. It was a nice surprise as I hadn't been in 10 years. I've been to the snow in Japan and Australia so I can only compare to... More

It is a good place for people who love ski and snowboard. You can find there nice bars and restaurants. Even if you go with small children, they have a kindergarten with good professionals to take care of them.

If you do not want to risk your skiing vacation in South America, this is the safest spot to place your bet. Plenty of snow from early on in July; actually a lot of snow to be true. Very good slopes for all levels of difficulty and a great family environment. The ski school works very well for kids learning... More

Very good sky resort. Prices are affordable, instructors are available for private or group classes. The resort has short or none lines at the lifts, except for Saturdays and Sundays which are crowded. One complaint is on their staff who attend at the "Casa de aguila", people who doesn't seem to care for the customers, are rude and unfriendly. After... More
