Reviews for Cerro Castor
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
I know all Skis resorts in Argentina. Although I have my heart in Bariloche (different variety of ski alternatives) there always seems to be some hazard. Either there is no power or strikes or rain or not enough snow, you name it. Cerro Castor is the best option, being so southward and cold there is never shortage of snow. All through spring (september) as well. Even through October! Buildings are quaint, restaurants on the slopes are fine, pistes and off pistes are great and varied.... Full Review
I skied here for 3 days in early Sept, it was my first visit to South America. The skiing was great and the snow conditions were good even in warmer weather (40s F), there was minimal ice in the mornings and only on a couple runs in the afternoon. The scenery is amazing, the mountains look at least as big as Colorado even though the base elevation is lower. Another really good plus (especially on the higher runs up the mountain) is that there are very few people and you feel like you have the mountain to yourself. This is especially true during the weekday. The ski area doesn't have much else at the base of the mountain but most people are going to stay in Ushuaia which is about a 30 min transfer away, and this has all of the typical amenities of a smaller ski town as well as some great adventure tours. Another plus is that you can usually find staff that speaks English so if you do not know Spanish that well this shouldn't be an obstacle. I would also say the ski area provided a good value if you plan to say 3-5 days. Beyond that and you might get bored because you would have already done most of the terrain.... Full Review
I spent half week in Aug 2017 in Cerro Castor with some friends and we had a good time.
The resort is mid sized with great piste conditions that were kept until the end of the day mainly because the slopes were empty (it was the first week of the mid season). It is great for intermediate and beginners but maybe not so challenging for experts. The resort have easy access from Ushuaia via a well maintain road and the transfer takes about 40min. The staff all over the resort was very nice and my only complain is the speed of lifts that were kind of slow. Everything else was great. That week there were also some international ski teams training there (from Canada and Europe) that confirms the resort as one of the best options in the south hemisphere. ... Full Review
