Bariloche is a huge area. It has an excellent lift infrastructure that includes a high speed, 6 person chairlift, a high speed quad, and an aerial tramway. In addition Catedral has an extensive snowmaking system that ensures skiing to the base most of the season. I was fortunate to visit when the resort had good natural snow from summit to base. The best skiing was in the upper mountain bowls and chutes. I was pleasantly surprised to find how steep some of the terrain is. The city of Bariloche is modern and beautiful. It rises on a hill overlooking a lake and the Andes. Beware of school children on their Winter breaks.
