This is probably one of the best ski stations in Argentina, very good infrastructure and tracks. Good for beginners and advanced skiers. During the winter, several ski teams from around the world come by to practice there.

Epic!! Just epic can't say it enough if you can go then go hike it. I don't want to spoile it by telling things.. Instead you should go experience it for yourself.

I´m a skier .I've been in Cerro Castor several times and I´ve never seen an accident in the road. It´s a mountain road so it´s better if you have mountain driver skills but its not a dangerous road!
