Ski season 2016 Bariloche
Speaking about San Carlos de Bariloche means speaking about Cerro Catedral, which stands for “Mount Cathedral” in Spanish due to the resemblance of its summits to the towers of a medieval temple. Its majesty is well-known by skiers from all round the world.
Cerro Catedral, lying just 20 kilometers from the City of Bariloche, opens its gates with the first snowfalls for visitors eager to experience the adventure promised by ski and winter sports.
Reaching 1,030 meters above sea level, Mount Catedral seems to have the intention to join the ground and the sky.
A pioneer in South America, today it is the most complete ski resort in the country and it continues updating its facilities in order to offer visitors the most advanced infrastructure.
The unification of its sectors offers 600 hectares of skiable surface divided into 53 well sign-posted trails of various difficulties, which reach 2.000 meters over sea level.
With options for all ski disciplines, including off-piste, are available, those who practice freestyle and snowboarding will also enjoy an area specially designed with bumps and rails to show off their abilities.
Catedral has been the stage for the most important international competitions and snow festivals for years. The downhill torch parade, a night show that is gaining more and more fans, stands out.
Lift updating programs are constant and specially thought to improve the resort’s total lift capacity and quality.
Catedral also has a cutting-edge snow-making system which creates real flakes that cover a skiable surface of about 10 hectares.
