We were looking forward to our ski trip here, but worried about snow level and facilities. Fortunately, got lots of good snow before and during our visit. This is a good place for blue and black skiiers; the place is not huge like in Colorado, but more than adequate for August skiiing. Facilities were excellent, lifts fine, ski rentals slightly...

Down to the lift shack, this resort has class and style. This family run mountain is well laid out, with lots of options for beginners. Cerro Castor has a great terrain park and public cross course! Something for everyone! Stop into the bar mid-mountain for a warm drink, it's a cool little spot!

We were not very lucky in terms of quantity of snow but, even though, it was possible to enjoy most of the ski tracks. Nice atmosphere, infra and staff. highly recommended.

The cerro Castor is a great place for Ski and Snowboarding. Have an amazing structure with instructors. But is very expensive. They changed the price from one day to another.

You need stamina and lots of patience to make it through the two hours of waiting in three separate queues (if you also need to rent equipment), before taking off to the ski lift. Only one place to rent equipment and if crowds are large, totally overwhelmed. The real annoyance are the day ticket selling counters. Huge swells of people... More

Well equipped and with good lifts, we were not so lucky as snow was late to fall this season but the snow machines made our skiing doable. The escuelita for small kids is excellent and loving.

Breathtaking views and good infrastructure. Nevertheless, service could be better, more organized and more friendly. Also, one of the restaurants was very weak. But the mountain is great, so you can have a lot of fun.

Rather expensive during high season but totally worth it. Great Experience indeed. Facilities are good, the mountain may attend the need of starters and experienced people once they do not share the same area and stuff.
