The Mountain

La Hoya Resort may be a small mountain acreage wise, but it offers great action-packed terrain to challenge even the most advanced skiers. Located high above Esquel, La Hoya has wide-open bowls, chutes, long groomers, and natural half pipes. The out-of-bounds here is limitless, with miles of bowls and couloirs that one will not be able to ski in a lifetime!

Esquel is a wonderful mountain village with accommodations to suit all travelers’ needs.  From rustic cabins to luxurious hotel rooms, there is a good variety of lodging and some of the friendliest locals in all of Argentina!  Esquel also has some remarkable restaurants with cuisine from all over the world, including wild game and fish, which are local to the region.

Nightlife

Esquel offers many great pubs and bars for après-ski and discothèques for those that enjoy dancing to Latin, House, 80s, and Tango music.
