Patagonia Powder Tour

Bariloche, La Hoya & Cerro Bayo

Ski or snowboard some of Argentinean Patagonia's best off-piste. This tour visits the well known and extremely popular (for good reason) ski resort of Catedral Bariloche plus 2 of Patagonia's smaller resorts La Hoya and Cerro Bayo. These ski resorts can be difficult to get to with limited holiday time unless you have your own transport. In private transport you will be able to spend some amazing days exploring their off-piste.

The tour starts in Villa La Angostura in northern Patagonia. A beautiful holiday and ski town close to the fun terrain of Cerro Bayo. The tour then heads south to Esquel deep into Patagonia where you will spend three nights. You will ski or ride quite possibly the coldest powder in the Argentine Andes! Just when you thought it could not get any better, the tour takes you to Bariloche with huge amounts of inbounds and backcountry lines, and some of the best nightlife and restaurants in South America.

This is a true Patagonian Powder adventure.
