South Argentina Excursion Description:
Since 2010, nobody's been doing south like OvRride! Looking to head south? In August we go so far south, it's still winter. Join us down in Bariloche for some summer snow set in the beautiful Patagonia region of Argentina. We'll be riding and skiing at Cerro Catedral ski resort where you'll find a mix of epic mountain terrain, mellow powder rollers, downtown restaurants, nightclubs, and a happening local scene. In 2015, we added the option of Backcountry Snowmobile Ski/Ride day tour at nearby Mailin Alto.
This is truly the most friendly foreign destination OvRride travels to with the best mix of on and off the snow options. One of the highlights is spending a Saturday day & night in the Argentine capital city, Buenos Aires. We'll be staying in the chic neighbourhood of Palermo and exploring sights throughout Buenos Aires during our afternoon walking tour, hitting a traditional Argentine dinner and experiencing the legendary Argentine nightlife... Make sure you get some sleep on the plane!
The high USD cash exchange rate versus the Argentine peso helps you get more bang for your buck using cash at local bars and restaurants in Buenos Aires and Bariloche.
Ride South America’s best powder… thru bamboo… while condors fly overhead. It's Summer Upside-down!!!
Our large comfy and spacious private apartments couldn't be any closer, located right at the base of Catedral to make it easy to come and go as you please. These apartments also have large full kitchens, offering the option to cooking during our stay. With large private decks facing Catedral and Lake Nahuel Huapi, you'll be sure to catch some epic vistas, sunsets and sunrises.
This trip and all our trips are for all levels of abilities and experience. If you are a pure beginner or low intermediate and would like to come on the trip we can also organize group or private lessons at an extra cost. If you have a friend or partner that is a non skier or snowboarder that would like to come, we can arrange non riding activities and will still enjoy so much of what Argentina has to offer. The experience of enjoying South America is certainly not limited to riding or skiing ability.
