Ushuaia Sports & Outdoors: 17 reviews and 27 photos


Nordic skiing has grown quite popular in the area in the last several years. Ushuaia is, without question, the Nordic skiing capital of the continent. Low elevations and cold temperatures combine to make the spot ideal for Nordic training, and many international teams come to Ushuaia to train in the off-season. There are well over 100km of trails among the six developed ski centers. Jerman is the most wooded of all but is the only one that doesn't have trails that connect with the others. Tierra Mayor has the best-developed trail system and is the most popular. Not discussed are Altos del Valle, Valle de Los Huskies, Las Cotorras and Haruwen all of which offer a lodge and interconnecting trails. Other possibilities for skiing in the region abound. The best is probably at Lapataia where the CAU maintains a small refugio
