10 Ski centers in Argentina

If you are coming to Argentina between July and September for an internship abroad or volunteer work stay you can also enjoy winter sport activities in Argentina. Of course not in Córdoba. Sometimes it is also snowing in the Sierras of Córdoba but not enough to do skiing. For skiing you have to go to the Andes far west to Mendoza or to the South of Argentina. If you are doing work and travel in the winter time in Argentina you could also look for a job in one of the ski resorts. Once an austrian ski teacher visited us who is communting between the ski seasons of Austria and Argentina and he told us that he is earning more money as a ski teacher in Argentina than in Austria.
