Cathedral Hill (Cerro Catedral) Ski Center

Cathedral Hill (Cerro Catedral) Ski Center

Tied to the tourist tradition of Bariloche, Cathedral Hill is one of the most popular and complete winter ski resorts in South America, internationally recognized for its quality establishments and services.

The center is located on the west side of Cathedral Hill. This mountain gets its name from its peaks that seem to take the shape of a gothic cathedral. Its maximum altitude reaches 2,388 m (7,832 ft) above sea level and since it is situated in an open area, one has an extraordinary view of the surrounding mountains and peaks.

The base of the resort is located at 1,050 m (3,444 ft) above sea level and the slopes reach an altitude of up to 1,950 m (6,396 ft). Villa Catedral (Cathedral Villa) is a small mountain village at the base of the mountain. It provides all the services a skier could possibly need: accommodations, first aid, restaurants, discotheques, telephones, internet, security, stores where you can buy or rent equipment, etc.

Cathedral Hill is managed by two different entities: Upper Patagonia in the north and the Rio Negro Province in the south. Each area functions with different tickets that cannot be combined.

The ski resort boasts 50 slopes and 27 lifts.
