Emblem of Villa La Angostura, since 1978, the Mount Bayo frames its ski resort inside a beautiful natural landscape. Surrounded by forests and with a majestic view of Lake Nahuel Huapi, it is very close to the mountain village and it offers 200 hectares for the practice of alpine skiing, with a 700-meter vertical drop.
Bayo represents an appropriate environment for beginners and advanced skiers, who can count on 22 signaled runs and 12 lifts. Good black runs, deep snow in the ravine and matchless off-piste runs that go through untouched forests from the summit to the base.
In a privileged natural environment, the La Angostura hotel infrastructure and gastronomy, conjugated with the family atmosphere of the Mount Bayo, guarantee excellent winter vacations with the practice of skiing.
