What to Expect

There’s something special about skiing at the ‘end of the world,’ where expedition cruises depart for Antarctica and there are only 7 hours of daylight in the dead of winter. Even though Cerro Castor is relatively low elevation, its cold climate and Southern orientation make up for it and deliver incredible powder through the longest ski season in South America.

"This excellent ski resort is the one that the locals flock to for their winter skiing. It’s also famous for being the most southerly ski resort in the world."

-Laurence Rapp

Cerro Castor may not be as challenging as other Argentine resorts, like Cerro Catedral and Las Leñas. But none of the other ski areas offer ocean views as you glide down wide groomers, or tree skiing through ‘lenga’ forests, which are characteristic to the region. On top of great skiing, Ushuaia has plenty of other activities on offer, like snowshoeing, dogsledding, cruising the Beagle Channel, or visiting penguins at Isla Martillo.
