Cerro Castor is the southernmost ski resort of Argentina (and the world, I guess), around 25km far from Ushuaia. So it gets the longer ski season of South America. It is also the younger ski resort of Argentina, with good lifts and pistes, even though I didn't like the lack of protection in some parts of the pistes.

This resort boasts plenty of positives - reliable snow, modern lifts, excellent piste maintenance, no queues, good quality rental equipment, and friendly staff. On the other hand, the number of runs is limited and even moderate skiers will have skied out the mountain in a couple of days. In addition the best run (Halcon Peregrino) is frequently closed for training... More

By all standards, Cerro Castor is well equipped with ski lifts and good path signs. The added bonus is that because it is located at the extreme south of South America you get extended skiing season and, more importantly, low altitudes with great snow. I will be traveling for the third time in 5 years to Ushuaia to ski!!!

Great place to ski. Fewer queues on ski lifts. The part of the mountain with advanced ski runs is quite empty, offering one of a kind skiing. Few times I had almost the ski run just for myself. Great dinning options as well. It is definitely worth checking!

We were in Ushuaia for 5 days early February and Cerro Castor was closed, so we were unable to go up. Our interest was the views and not skiing. Will have to reserve my review for the next visit. Travelers take note of summer closures.

I strongly recommend Cerro Castor to go skiing, run trineos pulled by dogs, have a great "cordero fueguino" with Malbec... it works! As a family plan is really good cause it´s quiet not so big and not many people

I can't really evaluate it since I couldn't go up there, but wanted to warn travelers that it is closed in the summer, lift doesn't work and the stores under it are also closed.

For all those who love skiing/snowboarding, Cerro Castor has caught me! I'm a skiing lover although I'm Brazilian, but going to Cerro Castor, mainly in mid September showed me that's there is the place to go in the end of snow sports in South America... beautiful landscape, nice staff, Snow Resort was empty, no lines at all, and lots of...

We were so lucky that a storm had dumped fresh snow at Cerro Castor the week before we arrived - last week of the ski season! We hired our gear in town so we could basically get off our minibus and grab our lift tickets and go as soon as the lifts started ( catch the 0900 minibus). Not all... More

Steep and tough skiing but the scenery is wonderful. Would love to go back one day. The weather is a bit temperamental though
