Ski & City

Duration: 11 days

A stripped-back Argentinean ski itinerary, the full week on the slopes easily justifying the long flights to Argentina. Don't know which one will suit you best? Las Leñas? Cerro Catedral? Cerro Bayo? Cerro Chapelco? Let us guide you through the options, as they are very different from each other and it's worth making the most of our on-the-ground knowledge.

After you've spent your time skiing you could, of course, fly straight home. But where's the fun in that! You will find yourself passing through Buenos Aires and it's always a change of airport (not just plane) required. We suggest you spend at least a couple of nights in the capital – it's a romantic city which rewards all who linger.

Day 1

Arrive in Buenos Aires and transfer to your central hotel. Spend the evening getting to grips with your jet lag.

Day 2

Transfer back to the (domestic) airport for your flights to the ski regions. You could head to the Mendozan resort of Las Leñas or fly down to Bariloche and aim for one of the Patagonian resorts of Cerro Catedral, Cerro Bayo or Cerro Chapelco.

Days 3-8

Six days' skiing or snowboarding. Different Snow can organise your accommodation, transfers (or car hire), lift pass, equipment hire, lessons and/or backcountry guiding. We also have heli-skiing options.

Day 9

Transfer back to the airport and fly back to Buenos Aires. You are met at the domestic terminal and taken to your central hotel in the capital.

Day 10

A full day to explore Buenos Aires. Different Snow can arrange a guided tour or alternatively, you could head out under your own steam with our self-guiding notes to help you get the best from the day.

Day 11

Transfer to the airport for your flights back home.

It all depends quite how much luxury you feel you need (or deserve!) and prices can vary hugely depending on the accommodation selected. As a guide, prices for this itinerary would begin at circa £1,795 per person, which would include accommodation, ski passes, domestic flights, transfers and excursions as featured in the day-by-day itinerary.

This indicative cost does not include international flights from the UK or elsewhere, which Different Snow can also arrange for you. By keeping it all within one package, all your travel arrangements are protected i.e. Different Snow would be responsible for the operation of the entire tailor-made package. If you buy your flights separately, that’s no problem but it then becomes your responsibility to get to and from Argentina at the appointed hour. Different Snow have access to excellent fares on most airlines, at least as good as those you’ll find on the internet.
