“Very long lines and no snow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

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!

“You have got to be kidding me with reviews here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

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, and drive around! But this park is tiny and over priced, go to the other one Cerro Cathedral for sking and stuff. oh and you have to pay cash for everything here!

“Very funny but beware!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

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 recommend you to go on the winter. There are basic ski lessons but I don't recommend to do that because the are for skiing is not so big. Cerro Catedral would be better to learn. It is only to do Trineos!

Beware 1!!! They don't accept credit cards there so you have to take lots of money to pay the entrance. I would say that it is better to buy vouchers with your hotel or travel agent, they usually costs the same and you can pay by Credit Card.

Beware 2!!! The cabs can climb the hill for approximately ARG $35 from Bariloche downtown. There are some taxi drivers who will charge ARG $70 or ARG $80 to do that. For returning back it even worst! I would recommend you to schedule the return with the taxi driver or grab his personal card or you may have to pay lots of money to go down the hill. When I went to the park there was this man (I would say "mafioso") that were obligating all people and all taxi drivers to charge lots of money. He went after me and my friends when we said the fixed price to downtown were very expensive.
