I am going skiing in Argentina for 3 weeks starting Aug 20th. I arrive in Mendoza and want to ski at Las Lenas and the various smaller resorts around the Bariloche area. I will have a car, but not 4WD.
How much time should I plan from Las Lenas to Bariloche?
Should I take the RN40, take a more inland route through Neuquen or go through Chile? Is the RN40 far enough from the mountains that it rarely gets snow?

Talking about driving in Argentina ... I'm trying to find a GPS (satellite nav) system with street level guidance for Argentina but have trouble finding one. The only ones I found so far are "dummy" maps that do not support turn by turn navigation.
Anyone know of anything?
