7 nights in San Martin de Los Andes at a cosy hotel Frommers recommends + 7 day lift ticket + 3 nights in Buenos Aires at a good, well located hotel (Loi Suites at Recoleta) is costing me USD1350 per pax on double rooms. Not too bad for a 10 night trip, I'd say. My air fare was under 1k, but I'm flying from Brazil.

Wow tks, it is really not that bad, and the airfare is not that expensive either from Montreal (around 700$cdn round trip (to Buenos Aires - have to check $ for transit to Chapelco).

i thought the food in bariloche was amazing, had a great selection of restaurants, and fairly priced being a resort/tourist town. cerro catedral has a mix of above the treeline riding as well as glades. i found the snow to be comparable to utah/jackson hole. funny thing about bariloche and cerro catedral for that matter being a destination for south american college kids is even though there are groups of them in all matching snow outfits and boots, they apparently arent skiing or riding. it seems like theyre on class trips and pretty much just sightsee. when i was riding i did see them on the mountain, but they just took the lifts up and looked around/sat in a circle in the snow and chilled, but they weren't riding.

you will need a leash on the mountain cause they are very adamant about you having one, and the burton one that clips to a ring on your boot is def not sufficient as i had to buy one of those old school ones from a base shop that wraps around your leg (2 bucks).

also, i found that while waiting on lift lines noone cared about skiing right on top of your board, or knocking into your gear with theirs (most people had rentals) so kind of be on your guard.

Great info guys...much appreciated. 10 days sounds like a good trip with a few days checking out these great cities too...Buenos Aires more resembles Paris than any SA city and I'm sure Santiago would be neat as well and is close to 3(?) resorts. Definitely something to consider in the future.

If you're looking for some summer get-away activity then you should go to argentina's Atlantic Coast (Mar del Plata) its located 400 kms from buenos aires.

Me and my girl are looking to plan a trip in august as well, if thats the best month for conditions down there. We'd be down to meet up with a few others to keep it safer in numbers. We're 25 and 26 and are very easy going so if anyone wants to put something together, LMK!!

las lenas is supposed to get a ton of snow. only problem there is though that if its storming, you probably wouldnt be able to go up top since they close the lifts down due to wind.

chile is super fun
Ive been living and riding there for the last 3 seasons.
El colorado, Valle Nevado, La Parva, and Farellones all connect.
I'll have more info on prices for accommodation end of next week

3 Valleys Chile | Facebook

a little info and fotos from the area and the accommadation

Termas de Chillan or nevados de chillan as it may be known now is good. About 8 hours south of santiago. Has tree runs and hot springs.

Las Lenas in Argentina is the real deal when conditions are right.

enjoy and best of luck...
Karl
