Base elevation: 1,250 metres

Top elevation: 2,120 metres

Number of lifts: 12

Number of runs: 31

Access: Fly to Bariloche and then it's a three-hour drive up to San Martin de los Andes.

Once you get to the well-organised base area you’ll find all the facilities grouped together - a large ticket office, child care centre, a cafeteria, the ubiquitous ski wear shop (limited stock), and the main ski and snowboard equipment hire base. There is actually also another hub, up near the top of the gondola near the beginners area - here you’ll find the ski school and children’s play areas.

If you have any serious shopping needing doing then both the choice and prices are far better down in San Martin de los Andes.

As is often the case nowadays, they operate an electronic pass system, which includes a small refundable deposit on the key itself.

Lift tickets ain’t cheap. This being one of the most high=-profile ski mountains in South America. Of course much depends of the constantly fluctuating exchange rates, but to offer some indicative pricing see the table below;

5 days (Adult - Low Season) GBP 165
5 days (Adult - Mid Season) GBP 185
5 days (Adult - High Season) GBP 235

There are plenty of ski hire shops down in San Martin de los Andes, although they gain little over the official rental shop up by the slopes. Prices are good, standards are high and convenience is king if we organise this up at Cerro Chapelco.

The ski school is great, but Spanish is the only language used if you want group lessons. There are a few English-speaking instructors who can be chartered on a private basis - but we’ll need plenty of notice.
