Valle de las Leñas






Ski with a particular seal from the Cuyo area. Undoubtedly, Las Leñas is one of the most important resorts in Argentina due to its matchless snow quality, ski runs for all levels, Nordic ski and unbeatable areas for the practice of off-piste skiing.
Located near the capital city of Mendoza, it is also the highest resort, with a 1,200-meter vertical drop, between the 3,430-meter-high summit and the 2,240-meter-high base, thus creating a paradise for extreme skiing and heli-skiing, with options for beginner and intermediate skiers.
As a result of the dry features of the weather, the 230 hectares of skiable surface expose a snow quality that is internationally recognized.
It has a slalom stadium and 27 authorized runs with a maximum skiable length of 7,050 meters, among which one of the longest runs for intermediate level in the world stands out. It is reached by 13 lifts and, if the weather conditions do not contribute with the necessary amount of snow, Las Leñas has a modern system to make artificial snow.
Practicing off-piste ski in Las Leñas and sleeping in the Valle Hermoso high-mountain shelter, or using randonée skis with seal fur is an experience for advanced skiers in good physical shape hard to be put into words.
With first-class accommodation and gastronomy, ski and snowboard schools, among other services, Las Leñas is a classic.
