The real question is where can't you go skiing in Patagonia — the endless flow of mountains attracts travelers from around the world who want to take a tumble in some of the finest powder anywhere. There is also the surreal experience for those from the northern hemisphere of being atop a snowy mountain in the middle of July. While there is plenty of excellent backcountry skiing in Patagonia, it’s best to stick to one of the well-trafficked resorts with abundant groomed trails. The best bet, regardless of level of expertise, is Cerro Cathedral, about 12 miles outside of Bariloche, Argentina. As the most complete ski resort in the country, Cerro Cathedral offers modern lifts, amazing views, regular bus service and plenty of places to stay at the end of a long day of skiing.
