La Hoya, Esquel

(4.3/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • They offer a good service, at an affordable price, and include services of vans that take you and bring to your home. Once on top of the mountain, you come up in lifts where you can enjoy a lovely view, and arriving at La Hoya you have a warm place to go to eat or drink. Also affordable.

  • In summer is can contemplate very good views from the Hill, the road in auto until the base is very cute and picturesque, the chairlift is returns it a main and then there are trails for get more up but not is recommended for guys especially if are small or very restless because not has greater measures of security as a Lugano.

  • Cute ride chairlifts to enjoy the climb to La Hoya. Beautiful landscapes. The stretch drive until you reach the base of the Hill is also very nice. The café with rich cakes, not so the coffee with milk (glass of plastic and with milk in powder) with prices a little high.
