JET SET EXPERIENCES: Ski all Summer in South America

If a ski holiday is not in the cards this North American ski season – save the steep and deep for a trip down to Argentina next summer. July is peak ski season and Cerro Catedral in Bariloche offers some of the best snow conditions in all of South America.  

Named for the gothic cathedral looking granite spires, Cerro Catedral features not only the largest lift-accessed ski area in Argentina and Chile (and 3000 acres of off-piste terrain to explore for the more expert skier), but provides easy access to the city of Bariloche just eight miles away.  The Swiss influenced village of Bariloche sits right on Lake Nahuei Huapi – so if a day off the slopes is in order, there is plenty of optionality with abundant après-ski activities (well, eating and drinking mostly!) in this northern Patagonia region.

A convenient flight from Buenos Aires, Bariloche makes a natural addition to a more extensive Argentine itinerary including sophisticated city stops and vineyard visits.

JET SET EXPERIENCES: British Columbia Beckons

Ease of access (wonderful direct air lift into Vancouver), coastal proximity (delightful seafood and wine pairings) and low elevation (for those prone to altitude sickness) are key variables for selecting this world-class resort.

The journey is the destination as you wind your way up the aptly named Sea to Sky Highway 70 miles from Vancouver to the Whistler base village (comfortably situated at 2,000 feet).  Despite its lower elevation, Whistler Mountain enjoys bountiful snowfall from nearby Pacific storms and provides endless unobstructed terrain for all levels.

The international influence in Canada produces a varied and vibrant culinary scene and endless shopping along the Cultural Corridor leaving plenty of options for those who prefer to take a brief hiatus from the slopes.

And when you retire at night, the Four Seasons Whistler Residences are perfect for families while the iconic Fairmont Whistler provides incredible views of the mountain with ski-in/ski-out access.
