Chapelco
 

Like a sentry keeping watch on San Martín de los Andes, the 1,980-meter-high Mount Chapelco lodges one of the most attractive ski resorts in the Argentinian Patagonia. Located 19 kilometers from the mountain village, this internationally renowned resort, with 20 runs of several difficulty levels and excellent snow quality, combines adrenaline and scenery. The impressive view of Lake Lácar, the silence of the lenga forest and the stunning presence of the Lanín breaking the mountain range horizon turn this place into a unique option for the practice of winter sports.

Apart from the modern infrastructure and the beauty of its environment, Chapelco is one of the safest and most reliable ski resorts in the world. Its 140 "skiable" hectares, with slopes ranging from 20Cº to 45Cº and a 730-meter vertical drop, are patrolled by highly qualified teams that watch the runs and have fix posts at several spots in the mountain.

Chapelco offers the possibility of practicing various ski modalities: alpine, Nordic and randonee . Likewise, its runs are chosen by lovers of snowboarding, who display their skills in the four categories of this sport: half pipe, parallel slalom, big air and fun park, at the Snowboard park located at the end of the Graeff lift station, on the 1,700 platform.

Snowmobile tours and rides on sled pulled by Siberian huskies or snow-rackets walks along the virgin forest may also be enjoyed.
