San Carlos De Bariloche Ski Resort Review

With Bariloche's bustling Grand Catedral ski area you can hardly wish for a more beautiful setting. Just 20km from the bustling city pearched high above the spectacular lake of Nahuel Huapi, Catedral is all that any Alpine resort could be: sophisticated, cosmopolitan and vibrant, with no fewer than eigth disco's, a casino and a delightfil ski village.

On the wide plateaux and bowls between the peaks lie a wealth of wide-open, largely intermediate slopes with good, high-speed crusiing and abundant off-piste. Lower down, as you enter the more wooded sections of the mountain, there are some excursions in the trees and bushes to be enjoyed by the more adventurous skiers.
