Lonely Planet review

Gato Curuchet, the first South American in Alaska’s Iditarod, teaches dog sledding at this winter resort,which is also the sponsor of popular annual dog-sled races at the end of August, where kids also compete. There’s also good cross-country and snowshoeing areas, equipment rentals and full-moon trips. Extreme skiers can check out the snowcat skiing. It’s 18km from Ushuaia via RN3.
