Catedral is also the stage for the most important international competitions.
Cerro Catedral is a mountain located 19 kilometres (12 miles) from the city of San Carlos de Bariloche, by the Nahuel Huapí National Park, Patagonia, Argentina. Its peaks resemble the towers of a Gothic style medieval temple. That is the reason for its name. Mount Catedral (cathedral), located 19 kilometers from the City of San Carlos de Bariloche, opens its doors to the inhabitants of the world who wish to experiment the adventure promised by winter sports.
At 1030 meters over sea level, Catedral seems to try to join the ground and the sky. A pioneer among South American ski resorts, at present, it is the most complete and it continues updating its facilities in order to offer visitors the most advanced infrastructure. From this season on, the unification of its sectors will offer 600 hectares of skiable surface divided into 60 well-signaled runs of various difficulties, which reach 2.180 meters over sea level.
It is certainly the biggest with some 120 kms of slopes and trails accessed by 38 major lifts with a capacity of nearly 35,000 skiers/hour.
