Batea Mahuida

Batea MahuidaSki season 2019 Villa Pehuenia

Batea Mahuida lies 370 kilometers away from Neuquén. It is a ski resort owned by the Mapuche Puel community. Ever since the Batea Mahuida Volcano became extinct, a pond was formed inside its crater near which the Mapuche settled down.

The famous Bío Bío River has its source on top of the volcano. As well, "the hill of the tray" translation of its Mapuche name- gets covered with snow during the winter and gives origin to a skiable park, ideal to practice winter sports.

At Batea Mahuida, visitors may enjoy cross-country and downhill skiing, go for a ride on snowmobiles or be delighted by snowshoeing tours around the monkey-puzzle tree forests. This site also has a small coffee-house where, in addition to typical regional dishes, customers may buy Mapuche woven items.

A wide range of accommodation and gastronomic options is offered by Villa Pehuenia and Aluminé, lying close to Batea Mahuida. Thus, this winter center has everything visitors who come along from all the corners of the country need.
