The Snow Cat is the most efficient form of ground transport in snowy terrain , due to its stability, traction force and the possibility to open paths with its shovel. Thanks to all the years spent exploring Baguales’ ski-able terrain , we have created incredible programs that travel through many of the valleys, hillsides and mountains of the reserve. The objective remains the same: to search out the best slopes, the best snow, and enjoy each day skiing to the fullest.

Where the waters are calm, we’ll share a glass of wine meanwhile the day transforms itself into a dark blue sky filled with bright stars and a toast pays tribute to that moment. A Double fondue on board and a glass of wine crown this cold evening to have a one of a kind experience. At 5:30 pm our host will pick you up by the hotel so as to arrive at Port by around 6 pm. We’ll weigh anchor once the sun begins to set and sail in between mysterious islands which are loaded with their own history. As these stories begin to enlighten us, the city begins to do so. Eventually we’ll stop the engine and be able to relax and listen to the silence, just floating on board. Call it a magic trick because very day we are honored with a different scenery, a different sun, a different sky and ending. An experience that surely enriches the soul!

The Baguales Mountain Reserve is located in the province of Río Negro, in Argentina, 30 miles to the South from San Carlos de Bariloche. Its surface covers 25,000 acres, and contains a series of mountain refuges distributed along Mt. Villegas (2000m), Mt. Ciruela (1400m) and Mt. Aspero (1200m). All of them allow for awesome sightseeing and great ski runs as the snow powder there is one of the best in Patagonia, due to the dry weather and winter snow falls.

The area is perfect for all types of skiing —backcountry, snowboarding, catskiing—, it is situated in the core of the Patagonian region and circumscribed by two rivers: the Villegas and Foyel. Its snow powder rivals the quality of other top destinations in the world, and yet, is still a developing area for skiing activities so it doesn’t get too crowded as other areas like Cerro Catedral.
