Bariloche Cerro Catedral | Rocky Mountain Getaways | Lodging and Ski Vacation Packages


Where else can one find the unparalleled natural beauty of the Nahuel Huapi National Park, the quaintness of a bustling Bavarian Village, and a highly modern South American ski resort all rolled into one incredible vacation experience?  Cerro Catedral (also referred to as Catedral Alta Patagonia) is one of South America’s most developed ski resorts and is known for its fully modern base area amenities and lift infrastructure. The resort’s name was derived from the granite spires that sit on top of the mountain which resemble a gothic church.  The views from “the cathedral” are simply awe inspiring as are the vistas across Lake Nahuel Huapi. Let Rocky Mountain Getaways plan your ultimate vacation to one of South America’s most jaw dropping destinations.

The resort, located in the Argentina Lakes District, is popular both for its extensive terrain spread across three mountains and its 19 kilometer (12 mile) proximity to the town of Bariloche, Patagonia’s second largest city.

The Mountain: At 3,000 skiable acres, Cerro Catedral has one of the largest amounts of lift accessed terrain in South America covering 75 miles of skiable slopes with a 3,773 ft vertical drop. The terrain is well balanced for all ability levels with 15% beginner, 60% intermediate, 20% advanced, and 5% expert making it the ideal playground for any type of adventure seeker.  Skiers and snowboarders flock to Cerro Catedral for its excellent tree skiing, and experts have a wide range of chutes, bowls, and easily accessible off-piste options. There is also a popular terrain park for those wanting to practice their tricks and jumps. 

Bariloche and Cerro Catedral Lodging: The village at the base of Cerro Catedral has a good variety of accommodations all with convenient access to the slopes. There is also an ample and diverse cross section of restaurants, bars, and ski and snowboard facilities located in the modern base village.  

The city of Bariloche is approximately 12 miles from the resort and boasts its own unique personality. People flock to this year-round Andean mountain tourist destination due to its charm, lakes, forests, and stunning mountains.  Bariloche can house around 20,000 guests and has a very active nightlife including casinos, pubs, and tea houses.  Mitre Street is affectionately known amongst Argentineans as the “Street of Chocolate Dreams”, as it is lined with a host of chocolatiers, all with different varieties of delectable treats. It’s truly a vacationers’ dream for anyone with a sense of adventure and a sweet tooth.

Getting There: Bariloche has its own airport located 7 miles from downtown with two-hour flights originating from Buenos Aires. The road between Bariloche and the Cerro Catedral resort is paved and takes 25 minutes by car or bus.  It you will not have access to a vehicle; there are semi-regular shuttle buses daily between town and the resort.

We all had a great time in Snowmass and were very fortunate with the snow conditions and morning powder. The mountain wasn't as I remember it as so much has changed since I was there in 1986 & 1997.  We will definitely use your services again and recommend you (David) Down Under.

Thank you!



Hi Tench,

Next time we plan a ski trip, I will call you as you provided the best service I could have ever asked for! I will write a review on trip adviser, and where ever else I can locate a review opportunity. Beaver Run was the perfect location and all check-in/out was smooth and hassle free. Thank you for your help - we all had a great time and appreciate your attentiveness and help.

DanOur trip to Vail was awesome!!  I really appreciated your help in putting things together for us.  Everything went so smoothly – I appreciated you taking to time to send our lift tickets to the hotel – it was great having things all together when we checked in and were eager to hit the slopes.  I’ll definitely consider your services in the future. 



Dan V.

I have to tell you David, I own a real estate sales company with over 55 sales people and my company was # 1 in NJ for all of REMAXs 170 offices for commissions. I tell you that because I have some great sales people and I just wanted to say, you are a great salesperson. You have a great, calm friendly demeanor and your follow up over the years has been impeccable. I have given your name and info to quite a few people over the years and will continue to do so. Kudos on a job well done from one sales professional to another.

James R.
