Thanks for the reply, I'm personally thinking about going September this year. Probably gonna stick around Bariloche though as I'm planning on doing two days of Snow Cat-Boarding at Baguales Mountain Reserve, then 2 days at Cerro Catedral (weekdays to avoid the crowd). Would have loved to venture out more and hit the other resorts but it be too much driving (in a country I haven't driven in before), and my schedule is fairly strict. If it goes well, will definitely come back and check out Las Lenas in the future.Yeah I'll answer the same as I did in the other thread: When in Las Lenas, I met a lot of people who went to Bariloche and Ushuaia and they all understimated the North. Sure snow drops are less impressive (stil we're speaking >10m/year), but you get good weather windows and crazy vertical drops with sustained steepness. Las Lenas is crazy good for couloirs and open faces riding (and I ride in the Alps as a reference…), even if it's a bit posh and not super "core" (although, you see a lot of pro freeriders there in the northern summer). I saw and heard good things about los penitentes, but it seems to closed right now.
Get a local SIM card and make sure you have Google Translate - lol.it would be nice to meet English speakers. My Spanish will be bad but I’m gonna try learn some. 🤓
2nd week of September, doing two days of Cat Skiing at Baguales Mountain Reserve (pretty close to Bariloche) and two days at Cerro Catedral.I will head towards the mountains end of July and I’ll be there all of august so hope to get as much freeride as I can while I’m there. When are you going?
Night buses are really good there. There are ton of them, they go everywhere and you get a fall bed and all. They are often much more practical than flights.I am gonna head out to Argentina. July- August
Looking for some advice from anyone who’s been recently.
i booked flights to Buenos Aires and now just trying to figure out what to do, seems best to take a domestic flight somewhere but the one I looked at said something about 15kg max weight. the bus ride doesn’t sound tempting but maybe best option if they are strict about weight allowances
