SASS ARGENTINA LODGING
From the clean and comfortable SASS Lodge and it’s indoor/outdoor pool to the luxury apartments nearby, we take pride in providing clean, high-quality accommodations to clients. Adults and Under-18 clients are always lodged in separate rooms (and separate floors, if possible), and SASS will make every effort to accommodate special rooming requests. New accommodations and high-quality bedding will assure a great night’s sleep after a day in the backcountry or a late night out.
SASS Global Travel and partner SoulMax are able to arrange a host of alternative lodging options at the base of Cerro Catedral for larger groups or teams. Call 800.851.4660 for group or team inquiries. Also check out our FAQ section for answers to more lodging questions.
FOOD & DINING
Breakfast, tea-time and dinner are included every day at SASS Argentina. Breakfast is an American-style affair, with eggs, sausage, potatoes, fresh-baked breads and fruit. Tea is prepared in the late afternoon with a variety of homemade Argentine pastries and sweets, along with a variety of tea and coffee. Dinners are high quality meals served on a rotating menu by a talented waitstaff. There is also a fully stocked bar open just steps away at Jackson Bar in the evening. Lunch on the mountain is up to you. We begin every day with a stop our favorite eatery, Tage, where you can purchase a bagged lunch or snacks for your day out on this hill. If you want to grab food at one of the many on-mountain spots Catedral has to offer, just give your guide or coach a heads up in the morning to see if it will work into the plan for the day.
A group asado is offered once a week for the entire crew at the lodge. In keeping with traditional Argentine tradition we hire a local asador to grill up a massive variety of chorizo, lomo, entrana, morcilla and more. This Argentine BBQ is one of the things that everyone looks forward to and is an unreal opportunity to eat the steak for which Argentina is famous.
Coming off the mountain each day you’re greeted with friends, and the people that become your family. Everybody does nothing but smile and enjoy the good food and good times. Speaking of the food, it was somewhere near heavenly.

THE SASS LODGE
SASS Argentina clients stay slopeside at Catedral, South America’s largest single resort! SASS locates it’s campus at the Soulmax complex, only a couple hundred yards from the base of the mountain. All SASS Argentina packages include our standard lodging at the SASS Lodge @ SoulMax. Upgraded options in luxury apartments are located right next door. That means waking up and knowing exactly what’s going on at the mountain and no additional transportation every day. This helps us maximize time on the mountain and lowers our environmental impact.

LIFE IN A MIXED COMMUNITY
In addition to skiing and riding with world-class guides and pro coaches on the mountain, we live and eat together. This means that we’re a great place for single travelers, and you’ll meet tons of different types of people. Our “average” client is in their late 20s, with clients in 2012 ranging from 15-56 years old, traveling from the U.S., Canada, Australia, UK, Switzerland, Argentina, Venezuela, Mexico and beyond. Don’t be scared — you’re all here for the same reason, so be ready to share an incredible experience with a new group of friends that love the mountains as much as you do.
One of the greatest things about a trip like this is that you’re meeting a bunch of like-minded people from all over the place who share your same passion. I went down there on my own not knowing anyone and left with a whole new group of friends I still stay in touch with.

SHARED VS. PRIVATE ROOMS
Our base pricing incudes shared lodging at our exclusive facility. No matter your age, we encourage you to consider shared lodging — you’ll make friends fast and become a part of the family even faster. But, we know it’s not for everyone. Most rooms feature 3 or 4 twin beds, private bathroom and simple furnishings. The number of people in your room depends on the session and duration of your stay. Alternatively, you can also pay a lodging upgrade fee and reserve a private room, or a double-occupancy room with a King bed for couples. We also have Loft and 2-Bedroom private apartments available next-door, ideal for groups of 3 or more traveling together.
ROOMING STANDARDS AND PROCEDURES
Under-18 and Adult clients are always lodged separately, as are male and female clients, unless they have reserved a private room. We are nearly always able to lodge friends and those traveling in groups together — though it’s not guaranteed. If you have special rooming requests, let us know!
We offer numerous options for lodging upgrades to make your SASS Argentina experience even more amazing. Private rooms in the SASS Lodge are available upon request and apartments, cabins and houses are also right niext door and ready for your reservation. Great for groups, teams and those looking for their own private space.
