Cerro Castor

Southern and young from all points of view, ever since its opening, Cerro Castor has welcomed more and more visitors not only from Argentina but also from all over the world. They come along to the City of Ushuaia to enjoy excellent snow.

Very close to the end of the world, where the sea and the mountains meet before the eye of the tourist, Cerro Castor ski resort lies just 195 meters MSL and its top reaches 1,057 meters.

With a skiable slope of almost 800 meters, 30 kilometers give life to a total of 26 trails featuring various degrees of difficulty, as well as off-piste sectors, ideal to walk on the snow.

Its circuits across the lenga forests may also be enjoyed during a snowshoeing tour. This ski resort presents spectacular climate and a fantastic quality of snow, appreciated by all visitors.

Its particular characteristics make the season last longer than in other winter centers, managing one of the longest seasons in South America.

Modern lifts, top ski and snowboarding schools along with all the services provided and also completed by what the City of Ushuaia has to offer turn Cerro Castor into an ideal site when the winter comes.
