    Question Cerro La Hoya/Esquel: Recommendations, por favor

    Plotting a quick trip south on some instinct and zero intel. Done the search here and no results. Has anyone been?

    My buddy’s wife is from the area, it sounds great. Little ski area close by and good rafting. Sorry, that’s all I know.

    Yes

    Long time ago.

    Small but perfectly formed.

    Great hike to terrain.

    Long road drop if the conditions allow. Organise a pick up.

    Some good restaurants and bars in Esquel.

    Long way from anything else.

    Would return tomorrow if the conditions were good.

    Sounds like a good time and evidently not a bucket list destination. Perfect

    Totally. That's the kind of place I'm completely attracted to these days.

    Here's a shot at La Hoya from many moons ago.

    I recall accessing this slope by riding the lift on the far left, getting off and traversing aways to the left, ultimately skiing above a hairpin turn just below the ski area.

    As others have said, Esquel is a cool town.

    Cool terrain. It rains there. Base is around 1500m. Super fun spot when it all comes together. Not when it's raining.

    High quality hike to terrain is very easily accessible, without skins. With skins, the possibilities open up even more.
    Nice little town, good vibe. Although I was there a long time ago as well, I think 2010.
