Snow Sport activities in The Lake District
In nearby Moquehue, LM Aventura offers dog-sledding trips (40 minutes to three days) through the araucaria forests in wintertime.
Despite wide open bowls and some of Argentina’s best powder skiing, this 1350m resort is just starting to become well-known. While cheaper and less crowded than Bariloche, it is smaller and comparatively tame, ideal for families. Summer activities include hiking, chairlift rides and horse riding. Equipment can be rented on-site or at sport shops in Esquel. Minibus transfers cost AR$50 round-trip; taxis may be a better deal for groups. It’s 13km north of Esquel.
