Cerro Castor



Cerro Castor

The newest in Argentina and, like everything in Ushuaia, the southernmost in the world, Castor Mount opens its fifth season. Very close to Tierra del Fuego capital city, where the sea and the mountains meet to be the protagonists of a dazzling geography, Castor is only 195 meters over sea level and its top rises to 1,057 meters.

With a skiable drop that reaches 772 meters, Castor Mount distributes 19 runs with different levels of difficulties and off-piste sectors into 20 kilometers. Nordic ski is the most outstanding modality, with circuits that go through lengas forests which can also be visited on snow rackets.

Unlike the general belief, Castor enjoys very good weather and the best quality of powder snow, due to the stability of its temperature, offering one of the longest seasons in South America.

Modern lifts, skiing and snowboarding school, and all the services that complement the infrastructure and Ushuaia scenery, turn Castor Mount into a complete resort, to ski in the confines of the world.
