La Hoya, Esquel
(4.4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
A small ski resort with a big history, including the legendary Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid, La Hoya sits in a wide circular basin with 24 trails converging into one narrow area. Steps and mountain crossings connect all trails. The dry powder snow covers the mainly treeless slope until October, when you can ski and snowboard with fewer clothes on. The resort also offers an area for ski touring, plus a comprehensive snowpark with three training sectors. Off-piste deep snow attracts freestylers with its steep chutes, wide-open bowls, and vertical cornices. Amenities include ten ski lifts and a restaurant with rich food at reasonable prices. Take a look at our Esquel vacation planner to schedule your visit to La Hoya and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • We were in the group, while the complex was closed, were able to ascend on foot and enjoy the snow. The ascent on foot is VERY INTENSE (if going with small children or elderly people) but if they go to Esquel is a place that can not miss

  • Beautiful place, that what went out of season and was fully closed. Children and adults are quite interesting, and that it was snowing much, what is no longer common in this time of the year (October) see the snow.
