This past Saturday Cerro Catedral started its ski season. The mountain resort has its name for having a shape similar to a cathedral.
The resort, located on the lake region of Patagonia, just outside the town of San Carlos de Bariloche, opened its ski season full of snow, looking marvellous.
There are 60 cm at the top of the mountain and 30 cm at the base area.
Skiers and riders can find open the Sextuple chairlift, Punta Nevada and Lynch. Also are open, the Magic Carpet 3 and 4 of the Play Park for beginners.
During the week the rest of the lifts will be opening gradually. For the people just going up the mountain the Cable Carril, the Lynch chairlift and cablecar Amancay will be operating.
rants that will be opened are Cabaña 1600 on the top of the sextuple chairlift; El Barrilete, before the chairlift Punta Nevada; refugio Lynch at the arrival of the chairlift Lynch, Punta Nevada, on top of the Cable Carril, and La Roca, at the arrival of the Amancay cable car.
Cerro Catedral has more that 1200 skiable acres between forests, pistes and rides that allow you to enjoy the views of the lakes and the Andes Cordillera. It has 34 lifts, with a capacity of approximately 36,000 skiers per hour.
To buy lifts in an advance form, you can go to www.catedralaltapatagonia.com and see the different proposals of the Online Pass

We’ve been writing about the opening of Chapelco recently as well as if the snow in the Northern Hemisphere correlates with that one of the Southern Hemisphere. Also, look at our long range weather patterns for Chile and Argentina.
