Skiing

Cerro Perito Moreno. The ski area at Cerro Perito Moreno, 25 km (15 mi) northwest of El Bolsón, is owned and operated by Club Andino Piltriquitrón (Sarmiento at Roca 2944/492–600), which also runs a restaurant at the base, where you can rent skis, snowboards, and sleds. The ski area is open from mid-June to mid-October and is used mainly by local families. Four short tows for beginners and one T-bar access the 750 meters (2,460 feet) of skiable terrain on east-facing slopes. Since storms approach from the west, snowfall can be minimal, so it's best to call the tourist office or Club Andino before you go. El Bolsón, Río Negro.
