Winter is not far away downunder – South America’s #1 ski resort Cerro Catedral near Bailoche just copped a dump down to 1200m, which would give 900m vertical of skiing already if lifts were open. You’ll have to wait for that, but don’t wait for great Early Bird deals saving over 30% from www.travelplan.com.au – 7 nights on snow apartments closes to lifts with 7 day ski pass from $990 per person all season if you are quick. Plus they have a 2 for 1 special on their popular Patagonia Powder Week hosted ski/board programs there. Combine all that with a super special airfare deal from LAN, fly Sydney to Bariloche from $1650 return, must be booked/ticketed by 17 March. Click link above or call 1300 754 754 for details.
