SKI ARGENTINA

Argentina has a superb reputation for the ultimate Andean Ski adventure.

Take a plane for an hour and a half from Buenos Aires and only 43 miles from the airport of Malargue and you discover the highest and most sophisticated Ski resort in Argentina.

Las Leñas opened in 1983 and now has a capacity of over 3000 beds. It boasts 60 km of runs which offers skiers and snowboarders descents to suit all abilities.

The main feature which is something not to miss is the Marte ski lift. The lift takes you from the steep bowl directly under the marte chairlift to Edaward's 48 degree Couloir. There are literally hundreds of chutes between 40 and 50 degree plus.

Along with the snowcast tours and the steep terrain, it is easy to understand why Las Lenas has the reputation as the best resort in Argentina.

Not only is the Skiing legendary but the nightlife also has a reputation of it's own. If you are able to muster the energy to party through the night after a day of the slopes then look no further than the Clubs and Discos that rock through out the night.
