Chapelco Summer 2013
The great summer adventure in the mountain starts today.
Today, January 4, 2013, Cerro Chapelco will open its mountain park, one of the must visit attractions of this summer in Patagonia. It will offer activities and games for all tastes within a natural environment, as well as a bike park with PRO circuits where the summer sports event known as Downhill Open Shimano Chapelco 2013 will take place.
The activities that may be practiced in Chapelco include Patagonian slide, foot-golf (the star sport of this summer), zip-lining, hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, archery, mini golf, high jump and inflatable castle for kids.
One of the biggest attractions in the mountain park will be the incredible bike park, which will offer various mountain bike circuits divided into beginner, intermediate and PRO. Everyone can get deep into the woods on two wheels sorting out obstacles, bumps and the most demanding routes.
On February 9 and 10, Chapelco will host one of the issues of the mountain bike Open Shimano circuit, in the downhill discipline. This is the most important championship in Latin America, which will become the major sport event of the summer.
On the opening day, residents of San Martín and Junín de los Andes will enjoy a 2x1 package. This means two people will be able to take part in each activity hired with only one pass. This package will be valid every Saturday in January and February. In order to make use of it, visitors must bear their ID card where their place of residence is evidenced. Services may be hired at the base of the complex, where the customer assistance office will provide information about each activity, or at the authorized agencies in San Martin de los Andes.
The activities may be hired independently or in packages of three or five, with great discounts. There will also be a Summer Passport 2013 that includes a ride at each of the activities. It is transferable and has no expiration date during the summer.
Chapelco Mountain Park will open today until February 28, from Mondays thru Saturdays from 10am to 5pm. The center will be closed on Sundays.
