This isn’t a resort where the owners of the ski mountain also own or regulate all the facilities at the base also. Rather, it’s a free-for-all with plenty if competition and consequently standards of instruction, equipment and maintenance vary markedly. Different Snow work with who we know to be the best and, thanks to the healthy free market, we don’t even pay a substantial premium to do so. Essentially, we steer you clear of the cowboys whose outlets spread across the base area, many in the Las Terrazas shopping mall.

It’s possible to secure overnight ski and boot storage in the Plaza Amancay.  

This base area also has ATMs, retail outlets and the ubiquitous wax, tune and repair shops.

Cerro Catedral has the most lifts and largest ski area in Argentina. Therefore it stands to reason that the lift passes are the most expensive in the country also, which is still not overly extortionate by our European standards. You get what you pay for and the there’s plenty of terrain out there to explore….

The passes come in the form of electronic keycards, which scan you through turnstiles without needing any contact.

Indicative prices can be seen below, in sterling, to give you an idea. Skiers between 3 and 5 are considered children and between 6 and 11 are considered minors.

6 days - Adult (Low Season) GBP 210
6 days - Minor (Low Season) GBP 175
6 days - Child (Low Season) GBP 120
6 days - Adult (High Season) GBP 310
6 days - Minor (High Season) GBP 255
6 days - Child (High Season) GBP 178

Prices are acceptable (the amount competition once again being to our advantage) and the quality is very reasonable. You’ll find this years’ latest gear available for hire and we can get hold of fat powder skis and backcountry gear if you so desire.

Of all the ski schools operating here (there are many), none as yet promote group ski lessons in English. For lessons we’ll have to organise something privately. If you have the necessary multi-lingual skills, group lessons tend to last two hours.

We have a preferred local supplier when it comes to ski lessons – we can vouch for their quality and for the English-ability of a few of the instructors.
