Can't ski - Is it still worth going to Bariloche?

We're spending 10 days in Argentina at the end of August. We planned to spend 4 days skiing in Bariloche (staying at Llao Llao), but my husband now has an injured ankle and has been told by the dr. he can't ski.

Is it still worth going to Bariloche/Llao Llao? What can you do there in the winter if you don't ski?

Thanks!

Even if you didn't leave the LlaoLlao hotel, what a great place to nurse a bad ankle.

It is spectacular there. The views are amazing from that hotel. The picutres do not do it justice.

Definitely go to Bariloche and follow the suggestions for things to see in the area.

You will be very happy!!!

One of the best restaurants in Argentina is in Bariloche: Yuco

Some of the most beautiful scenery you'll see anywhere is in/near Bariloche.

Here's a view of the location of the Llao Llao that I took last December (it's in the center of the photo)... who can look at this and not want to go?
