  • We went with my partner in June 2019. The season isn't open yet, but there's a lot of people movement. Only cable cars are enabled, so it usually takes an hour or two to get on. I recommend going early so the delay is less. The hill is beautiful for the views and to play with the snow. I reckon that in season when they enable the slopes should be better, now there was not much (beyond that it was full of snow) As for clothes: since you get off the bus you will want to fit snowclothes. My recommendation is that unless you're going to throw yourself in the snow and make dolls and ski or culipatin, you don't have to. Maybe the only thing I'd tell you to rent in case you don't have good boots or sneakers that don't get water. Or if not thick stockings, and a couple of bags on the legs. But that's all I see essential. Then, several layers of clothing and these 10 points.

  • As it did not yet open the season in Bariloche (it is from 20/06) there is only one way to climb to the hill and it is on the cable car or cable lane as they tell it. It goes out $625 and can be taken out in interestless odds (remember that they are off-season data, I do not know if they will be modified) We were told that there was 3 hours of waiting but as it was the last day for me I decided to do so I could see the snow up close with such a nice day (it rained all the end of). After 4 hours I touch my turn, we go up medium fast and up it's a dream. The cafeteria was open but the benches outside were covered by snow (for the season again). I know there is always waiting on this hill (which is totally worth it) but I imagine it will be less tedious with the whole base open with activities, restaurants, etc. Data: the bus from the center of brc to the cathedral hill is the 55 (and I think maybe the 71 or something) happens every hour and is crowded most of the time, so much so that some people are left down by the crowd. Conclusion, super worth going. Beautiful wherever you look at it.

  • I owe my entire life to this resort, when I was younger I learned how to ski here!!! It was the best, I recently have returned and saw all the snow and the trails. The view from the top was spectacular, I HIGHLY recommend to come here to ski for Starters to Experts!
  • There is one of the must see places Bariloche. This is a ski centre (largest in South America) in winter with Alpine mountain type architecture and in summertime a mountain bikers, hikers paradise with trails all over the mountain. Views from the top are spectacular of the lakes and surrounding mountains. Access to the upper mountain by gondola Abancay or the highspeed Sextuple 2.4 km largo or the historic cable car combined with a short chairlift ride takes you too Refugio Lynch. All possible for pedestrians. Refugio Lynch restaurante at the top has 270 degree views of the lakes and mountains which can be enjoyed while consuming great food and wine in heated comfort..
