Argentina, known for tango, Malbec wine, Buenos Aires (the “Paris” of South America) and Patagonian gaucho culture, is also known as one of the world’s best ski destinations.
Few countries on the planet can match Argentina’s formidable terrain and dry powder, and there are more than 10 winter sports ski resort destinations and extensive backcountry options to explore. Paired with a trip to ski Chile (Argentina’s next door neighbor), you have options to over a dozen additional Andes ski resorts.
As Latin America’s second-largest country, Argentina’s landmass is mammoth, encompassing the coastal Atlantic Ocean, undulating swaths of “pampa” grassland, and the eastern half of the rugged Andes Mountains, which cut a mighty range of snow-covered peaks and volcanoes from the epic resort Las Leñas to Cerro Castor resort in Ushuaia, Patagonia, the southernmost ski resort in the world.
Argentines are steeped in culture, both home-grown and from the heavy influence of immigrants from Italy, Spain and Germany.

Our ski resorts
Located in Argentina's Río Negro province, Bariloche is a city surrounded by thousand-year-old forests, mountains covered in snow and crystal clear lakes. It's quintessentially Patagonian. A city that is home to excellence and surrounded by some of the country's most beautiful natural spots.
The land of glaciers presents, in addition to the charm and majesty of the most beautiful and impressive ice blocks in the world, a city full of life and surprises. It is a safe, clean and green town, with many natural attractions and with a lot of Patagonian history. Here we show you those places that are so close and sometimes we do not appreciate them with the naked eye.
Ushuaia, Patagonia, Argentina…these names awake the fantasy of thousands of people all around the world. A mythic, distant, immense place. Walking along it the visitor can observe Mother Earth's motion. At the end of the plains of Patagonia, in Tierra del Fuego Province, Antártida e Islas del Atlántico Sur, Los Andes cordillera stands out in the landscape displaying its glacier-meltwater valleys, peat bogs and ancient forests to show a paradise in the south.
The lowest rate between the Argentine ski resorts, a location that lets you keep the snow well into October and the ability to endlessly glide along 5 kilometers of slopes. These are some of the features that attract adventurous skiers in this activity.
SAN MARTÍN DE LOS ANDES
Skiers and snowboarders seeking more well-rounded options that include lift-serviced, groomed runs, stylish lodging and high-caliber restaurants, would do better at resorts such as Alta Patagonia Catedral in Bariloche or Chapelco in San Martín de los Andes, especially when traveling with kids.
It is one of the most important ski and snowboard centers in Argentina and America. It is located in the homonymous valley to the south of the province of Mendoza in the northwest of the Malargüe department, and in the interior of the Andes mountain range.
VILLA LA ANGOSTURA
Surrounded by lakes and forests, an extraordinary landscape combines with the warmth and singular beauty of the mountain architecture.
Villa La Angostura is in the southernmost tip of Neuquen Province at the northern bank of Nahuel Huapi Lake, right next to the Patagonia mountain range.
Very close to Santiago de Chile, in the heart of the Andes, is the largest winter resort in the Southern hemisphere and, probably, the most modern in Patagonia. Its name is a synonym for ski: Valle Nevado is located 3,025 meters over sea level, which ensures snow every winter to practice our favorite sport.
Ski Portillo, South America’s first ski resort, is renowned worldwide. The ski-in/ski-out resort is open from late June to September, during the North American summer. Located in the heart of the Chilean Andes and surrounded by stunning peaks, Ski Portillo Chile attracts skiers and snowboarders of all ages who come to enjoy incredible snow on slopes suitable for beginners, intermediates & advanced skiers.
