Ideal for professionals, beginners and intermediate skiers, Las Leñas features 17,500 hectares crossed by 29 trails accessed through 14 lifts (including a magic carpet for beginners).
A few kilometers away from Mendoza, this ski resort is one of the great protagonists of each season and one of the highest and most modern in Argentina.
An unquestionable paradise for extreme ski and heli-ski, Las Leñas has a 1,200-meter vertical slope ranging from the 3,430-meter summit to the base, lying at 2,240 meters of height.
Besides its already traditional slalom stadium, Las Leñas boasts one of the longest trails in South America: 7,050 meters in length. Ideal for intermediate skiers, this trail combines the already famed Apolo, Neptuno and Venus stretches and proposes an amazing tour that makes local skiers feel proud.
An uninterrupted 1,000-meter-long circuit with a light slope is perfect for beginners. Experts have the chance to ski even at night, along 2,000-meter-long illuminated trails.
When snow is scarce, Las Leñas makes use of its artificial snow system (30 snow machines scattered all around the mountain) to make sure all the trails have the necessary thickness to satisfy the needs of every skier.
A commercial center and an institutional museum, where visitors may learn the history of the valley, complete the offer. Las Leñas incorporates more and more services to please skiers every year.
First-class gastronomy and accommodation services, as well as ski and snowboarding schools are available both on the mountain and the base.
As a result of all these features and many more, Las Leñas reassures its permanent attitude to be a ski classic in Argentina year after year.
Immersed in a historical framework, Valle de Las Leñas is pleased to announce that a cutting-edge lift has been purchased for the resort. This state-of-the-art lift features the technology provided by the Austrian company called Doppelmayr, world leader in lift quality, technology and security.
The new chairlift has four seats and a modern access system to avoid queues. Before getting on the lift, skiers slide over a kind of moving carpet that accelerates their speed in order to reach the most appropriate pace to sit on the chair softly and effortlessly.
The new lift will be settled in the Minerva area, the busiest zone in the mountain. Together with the other lifts (TS Caris and TK Minerva), it will enable 4,230 skiers to access the area per hour, thus tripling the present capacity.
· 1,190 m long
· 296.50 m vertical elevation
· 7.91 minutes to access
· 2,100 passengers per hour
· 4 passengers per vehicle
In addition to the acquisition of the new lift, the mountain resort has been completely renovated through the generation of a new base with rental, parking, bar, guest services and other innovations that will decentralize the activities towards other areas within the venue.
The project is the result of an investment and expansion policy that has been carried out in the last few years all throughout the valley. This kind of technology enables visitors to have the safest and most modern mountain in South America.
