Since 1999, Castor Mountain has positioned itself as one of the most important ski resorts in our country. As we always say, Ushuaia has the best snow in Latin America and the snow at Castor Mountain is no exception.
The quality of the snow is due to the orientation of the mountain (southern slope) and its location (54° parallel, similar to Moscow in the northern hemisphere). At the same time, the mountain maintains temperatures between -5 and 5 degrees Celsius average.
Castor Mountain is the southernmost ski center in the world. It is located 26 km away from downtown Ushuaia and is very easy to access since the road is completely paved. Undoubtedly, very easy to combine with other excursions at the End of the World.
This year, Castor Mountain turns 20 years and it is worth mentioning its constant growth and updating in infrastructure. Although it started with 15 runs, today it has more than 30 and we can assure that it replicates the best infrastructure of the main ski centers in Europe.
