Snowboarding in Bariloche

by Anna23

Can anyone offer advice about arranging snowboarding near Bariloche? I already have a hostel (Penthouse 1004) booked in July but wondered whether I need to book lessons, transport, hire etc. before I arrive? Any reccomendations for who to take lessons with? I have never snowboarded before so would like group lessons for beginners in English. Also do you know if it is possible to hire snow wear i.e jacket and snowboarding pants or should I bring these with me? Am trying to pack light as continuing my travels after Bariloche. Any advice would be most appreciated!
Thanks:)

Bariloche is a resort town with all the amenities and more. Lessons are available privately as well as through the mountain if I remember right. For a large group lesson you may want to schedule ahead but I am sure it isn't a problem to book when you arrive if you are flexible with schedule. Board/boots rental looked to be available in town at shops and at the mountain. As far as clothing I can't recall seeing anywhere that rented. Maybe someone else can answer that? I would say if you are bringing your own go with light nylon rain pants that layer over long underwear and a rain shell over a fleece or down jacket because you will likely need all these items elsewhere in your winter season travels.

Hey! You can do everything once you get here, assuming things aren't taken. Late July is high season which means prices are high. If you're interested, I can help you out with all that stuff... I am from California but I am currently living in Bariloche. I give snowboard lessons privately (not through a ski school, which are really expensive). My friends have a rental shop that has clothes and all the equipment you would need (the first time I came here, I brought my own pants because I am short and none ever fit me! But there is a good selection.) The rental shop is located in The Greenhouse Hostel (www.greenhousehostel.com.ar) or feel free to contact me when you get here!

Travel Tips for San Carlos de Bariloche

Around the lake

by TheWanderingCamel

There can't be too many first-time visitors to Bariloche who fail to follow the Circuito Chico, featured in every tour brochure and an easy half-day excursion offered by all the local tour companies. It's a nice introduction to the region that takes you on a 65km loop along the lakeside with some stops at points of interest along the way. Of course, heaps of other people will be doing it at the same time, and the main features will inevitably have lots of other people there (as well as the ubiquitous souvenir sellers) when you arrive, but it is undeniably lovely, the views from the high points are spectacular and if, as we did, you go on your own and at your own pace, you'll find there are spots where you can stop and soak it all in in solitude.

Barloche's cathedral

by TheWanderingCamel

If Bariloche's cathedral, dedicated to Nuestre Senora de Nahuel Huapi - Our Lady of Nahuel Huapi, seems oddly proportioned - its height is disproportionate to its length and width - it's not surprising. Begun in 1946 and meant to be a much larger building, it was never finished and what serves as the cathedral today is, in fact, what was meant to be the entrance. Its soaring steeple is a landmark.

Inside the cathedral, the rather bare simplicity of the the interior is relieved by some 50 stained glass windows with both religious themes and images of the history of the Catholic church in South America, including Magellan celebrating the first mass on South American soil and some rather graphic scenes of the martyrdom of the first Jesuit missionaries.
