In Puerto Natales now, and considering the ferry from here to Puerto Montt?
In Puerto Natales and planning my next move.... I'm debating doing the boat from here to Puerto Montt... but that means I will need to head over the pass Cardenal Samore....., around the third-fourth week of April. Considering it was snowing today in Rio Turbio, I'm more than a little concerned.
1) Any idea when this pass gets snowy or icy?
2) Is the trip amazingly beautiful and worth it? They dropped the price in the off season to $315 + I have no idea for the motorcycle.
3) If I did this trip, where would I head east to catch highway 3? I would prefer a paved road from the San Junin de los Andes to highway 3. I want to head to Buenos Aires next.
Thanks so much for your advice in advance!

I took the ferry to Puetru Montt on my trip south. The weather was great so I had great visibility. It's a very scenic trip which only requires you to watch the mountains go by while you drink for beer or wine. I would do it again if I had the choice.
