superb for snowboarding, but good for sightseeing too, incredible views! Not so easy to get there, unless you rent a car but the journey is worth it.

This is probably one of the best ski stations in Argentina, very good infrastructure and tracks. Good for beginners and advanced skiers. During the winter, several ski teams from around the world come by to practice there.

I´m a skier .I've been in Cerro Castor several times and I´ve never seen an accident in the road. It´s a mountain road so it´s better if you have mountain driver skills but its not a dangerous road!
