La Hoya, Esquel

4.3
#2 of 6 in Outdoors in Esquel
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.

  • It is an attraction that offers Esquel. We went to the afternoon and the lifts running until the hs 16y30 so when we arrived it was all closed

  • If you walk by Esquel after taking the route that takes you to this place followed by a gravel road quite steep which may be in a better State. When you get to the base of the Hill go up a chairlift up to the middle part, and thereafter to walk.

  • It is summer. It is spectacular. We climbed in the car and chairlift. I don't want to think about what should be in the winter. Highly recommended at any time of the year.

Where to stay in Esquel

Some of Esquel's most affordable lodgings are basic hostels located quite a distance from the main bus terminal, which may not work for visitors without their own transportation. To stay closer to the city center, consider a mid-range hotel with a good selection of modern amenities. The local tourism office can also provide you with a list of rental cabins and apartments in the surrounding area, ideal for tourists interested in skiing, hiking, or exploring the nearby national park.
