The summit of Mount Perito Moreno reaches 2,216 meters MSL and it features a panoramic view of the entire shire and the most beautiful locations in the area.
The hillsides are upholstered by delightful woods of lengas and ñires which get covered with thick layers of snow every winter. This remarkably beautiful scenery combines the whiteness of the snow with the typical colors of the forest in the winter.
Mount Perito Moreno offers the chance to practice activities such as downhill and cross-country ski, snowboarding and mountain hiking, snow games, sled rides and even off-piste snowshoeing circuits.
At present, the hill features 11 skiable kilometers distributed into 9 trails, a double 1,000-meter-long chairlift line that joins the 900-meter-high and the 1,350-meter-high areas, where snow is guaranteed all throughout the winter. There are surface lifts in the easy and intermediate trails and a 1,000-meter-long T-bar-like teleski line that opens up the trail authorized by the International Ski Federation.
The venue has a mountain refuge that can shelter over 50 people and a coffee-house for 100 customers, as well as new gastronomic areas that have been opened in the intermediate area of the resort.

Located in the southern end of the American continent, Patagonia meets several natural conditions and characteristics ideal for growing vineyards.
Pure air, clear skies and endless silences are only interrupted by the whispers of the winds that cross the area from the Andes Mountain Range to the Atlantic Ocean, carrying the mysterious aromas of the bushes and the wild berries.
Make up your mind and climb, ascend or rappel down the most impressive mountains in Patagonia and become a great climber.
Considered as a high risk sport, it requires physical strength of arms and legs at the same time, combined with the technical skill of the climber.
We recommend that beginners do not start by climbing on natural walls, but in artificial ones and under the assistance of a professional guide.
