Post available in: English


Las Lenas is located at an altitude of 2249 meters at the base and goes up to 3340 meters, above the tree line. The view from the top is spectacular. With this high altitude, it receives more snow in comparison to the other resorts such as Bariloche and Chappelco.

While ninety percent of the skiers are Argentines, there are a lot of Brasilians too. They come in chartered flights from Sao Paulo direct to Malargue.

The ski resort turns into a mountain resort in summer with adventure activities such as mountain biking and horse riding. The resort hotels here have a total of 4000 beds.

The owner of Las Lenas resort is Tan Sri Arumugam from Malaysia. He owns 600,000 hectares of land in and around the resort and has sheep farms and a horse-breeding farm. He also owns 12000 hectares of land near Buenos Aires where he grows soy and wheat.

Las Lenas reputation as unquestionably the best ski resort in the Southern Hemisphere. Over 100 couloirs and epic off-piste along with countless back-country gems make it the top “off-season” ski destination for extreme powder skiing or snowboarding. More info about Las Lenas visiting
