Cerro Catedral, a major ski destination in Argentina's Bariloche, expects to begin its ski season as scheduled on Friday
Cerro Catedral, a major ski destination in Argentina's Bariloche, expects to begin its ski season as scheduled on June 17, despite being covered in ash from Chile's erupting Puyehue volcano chain.
The volcanic activity has decreased now and snow is falling on the ski slopes, covering some of the ash with fresh powder.
A spokesman for the Cerro Catedral ski resort said: "We are still waiting, but at the moment things continue normally and the opening is still on for the 17th."
People planning to head to Bariloche to enjoy skiing on the slopes should make sure that they have taken out a comprehensive
sports travel insurance to cover themselves for possible injuries and loss.
Although the huge amount of ash spewed from the volcano is now being blown in a different direction by the wind, flights in and out of the local airport are being monitored by officials.
