When the snow comes, skiing in Argentina becomes irresistible. The spirit of white sports is reborn as the new winter season is outlined.
Dare to feel the powder snow at Las Leñas or Penitentes. Get deep into the lenga forest in Chapelco with your boards. Feel the Patagonian wind and the beauty of a great panoramic view from Catedral or just let yourself be seduced by the extraordinary scenery of Mount Castor, where the mountain range and the ocean get together at the southernmost city on Earth, beautiful Ushuaia.
Sliding along the steep slopes of the mountain range summons hundreds of ski and snowboarding fans to practice the various disciplines. Both beginners and experts find their place and time to give free rein to their passion.
The defying Andean slopes in this country offer the possibility of practicing Alpine ski or to tour across spacious valleys and plains covered by snow enjoying cross-country ski. Sportsmen just need to choose the place and imagine the descent along the trails. They should arrange the schedules to take lessons at specialized schools and rent the appropriate equipment and clothing. Restaurants, tea houses, alternative tours and the best accommodation options in the country are expecting all those who dare to experience the snow ritual.
As a starting point for this white dream, here we present our ski and winter sports section, essential to enjoy the snow before going up the mountain.
Welcome Argentina provides all the necessary information about each ski resort in Argentina, so that each winter becomes unforgettable.
This section has come to be named HDR Photographs (High Dynamic Range) and it lets visitors observe 3D photographs. This is the result of a technology that imitates the performance of the pupil in the human eye when it becomes adapted to the light. Thus, these photographs seem real and they provide watchers the chance to feel as if they were in the very same place they are watching.
The estancias are definitely linked to the history and the essence of our culture. And for such reason, the houses and inns that welcome visitors today are accurate representations of our identity. In them, the past and the present of both Creoles and immigrants are expressed.
We invite you to travel the country and discover these estancias, country houses and inns: a brief ride with accurate information to tempt you tour and visit them.
