Enjoy skiing on-piste and off-piste @ Caviahue Ski Resort www.caviahue.com
Caviahue is by far Amity’s favorite ski resort in Argentina. They always have the best snow conditions in all Argentina and it never gets crowded like Cerro Catedral or Cerro Chapelco. It is located just on the other side of Lonquimay volcano (actually you can see Chile and even ski into Chile !!). The ski trails are located on the eastern slope of Copahue Volcano, and the base is 2km west of the village and just 4km east of the limit between Argentina and Chile. The village of Caviahue lies on the shores of Lake Agrio (also known as Lake Caviahue), and the landscape is characterized by ancient Araucaria forests, typical of the region.
As of 2014, there are 21 runs with different levels of difficulty (green, blue, red and black), plus one forest itinerary and one connection track. The lift system includes 1 four-men chairlift, 3 two-men chairlifts, 5 T-bars, and 2 small lifts. Besides classic alpine skiing, the center offers other activities such as snowboarding, snowmobiles, cross-country skiing, and a very scenic eight-kilometers downhill run from the top of Copahue Volcano to the shores of Lake Agrio.
In the evening we’ll eat a fantastic Argentinean BBQ at a local Grill, the undisputable best restaurant in the village.
