Great for winter activities

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.

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

One of the better ski areas in Argentina. You can have some fun here. Better than most resorts we have in Australia. Internation feel as the big ski teams from Europe train on these slopes.

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!!
