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.

"From the get go, Jinger had our plans dialed right down to the smallest of details. We arrived, checked-in hit the slopeside hot tub and THEN we knew we could relax and enjoy our annual ski vacation. Thanks for all the help!"


We had a great vacation to Steamboat. The snow conditions were amazing. It snowed every day but one while we were there. Temperatures were good also. The accommodations were great. Very nice unit and extremely convenient. We would definitely stay in this unit again. The staff were very nice and helpful. Your description of the unit and location was spot on.  

Thank you for your help David and I look forward to working with you again.

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.


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.

LisaThanks so much for the follow up, as a fellow sales professional it is always noticed and appreciated! The trip was amazing and everything went off without a hitch, heck, it even snowed the whole time we were there!  You will have a tough bar to get over for next year as a follow up to this homerun!

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.

Elisabeth, You did good work for me and my family. The Retreatia home in Steamboat was perfect. All the pre-work with tickets/rentals and the car is much appreciated. I could've spent a few hours searching the web, but you knew the location and vendors better than I.

Thank you again!

We  had a great trip Breckenridge.  The weather was great so were on the slopes from all day every day of the trip. One of my favorite memories was hanging out catching some rays in beach chairs mid slope at 10,000 feet.  Initially when we started planning for this Ski trip were going make all of our own arrangements.... We decided to call Rocky Mountain Getaways to see what they could offer.... Initially we received several vacation packages to choose from and we picked the one that seemed to be the best for our family. While were on the trip and after whole family felt we could not have made a better choice.  Eric - you and Rocky Mountain getaways made the whole process very convenient easy - We are so glad you we didn't try plan the vacation ourselves.  We will definitely use Rocky Mountain getaways for our next trip out west. 
Thanks for everything you did to make this a great vacation.
