Is catedral in Bariloche? I was in Bariloche during the summer but not during the winter. It looks similar, but I'm not sure with all that snow.

I've never disagreed with that approach. I just disagreed about that fact that I should have been in LL instead of where I went. Anyway, if all goes as planned, I would have hit all of SA major ski areas except one by the start of season 2009-10.

Yes, it is. Cerro Catedral is a city bus ride away. Beautiful place...Bluesfest has started, but I'll still have some pic for my last 4 days in Argentina to post (ski at Cerro Bayo then a few from Bariloche and Buenos Aires).
