In the meeting resident and guest chefs are responsible for creating culinary dishes and mergers that are always accompanied by great wines.

The "6 th Meeting of Chef in Height" (2009), was declared of Tourist Interest by the Ministry of Tourism of the Nation. Resolution No. 469/09.

Mountaineer's Day

Mountaineer's Day is celebrated each August 5 in Villa La Angostura to pay tribute to the pioneers of skiing and mountaineering.

The Mountaineer's Day commemorates August 5 because that day is the day of the Virgen de las Nieves, patron saint of mountaineers. It comes from the dedication of the Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, which is the main church of this city and of all Christendom.

The basilica was rebuilt by Sixtus III (432-440) in the same place (Esquiline Hill, Rome), which according to legend, were covered with snow the night of 5 August a pious wife who wanted to give to Mary and they asked the Virgin what they should do with her property to ensure the best Christian use of their heritage. The Virgin made the miracle of snow in August to tell them where she wanted them to build a chapel, so that shrine became known as Our Lady of the Snows. Until the sixteenth century was an exclusive fest of the basilica and St. Pius V included it in the universal calendar for August 5.

During the celebration you can enjoy the Snow Polo, polo competition in the snow that has the presence of recognized polo players, the parade of horses with different institutions, the fanfare and interpretations of the Band of the RIM 26 of the neighboring city Junin de los Andes, a mountain hot wine tasting a typical drink of the region and there is a contest of woodcutters and a waiters race.
