In the base of the hill (after the cableway), the tails are longer but after the first slope the tails are not too long, the tracks are in good condition, and are not very difficult. for the lunch you have about 5 spots to eat if i'm not mistaken (it can be more), Manolo and Pradera del puma are a...

Mid week I got a bit of a shock when I saw the huge numbers of cars in the parking area. We were lucky with a good dump of snow just before we arrived.

You can do nice skiing here, but remember most people do not speek English over here. You do get by but it is difficult. If you want ski lessons, some instructeurs do steak English. The view is really nice and you cannot compair with Europe. Much beter!

Chapelco definitely didnt live up to my expectations. Unfortunately, we went there on the opening day of the season.The children's day care centre was not working, so we had to leave our one-year old at the snow school, which is only prepared to receive older children. However, the carers did their best. The lifts could be in better condition, considering... More

If you wish to have a great panoramic view, take the lifts to the top of the mountain. On a clear day you can see a smoking volcano on the chilenean side of the andes

Not many different trails, but fewer people than Cerro Catedral, no queues and very fast lifts. Amazing view of the Lanin Volcano. Free parking. You definitely have to go there once.
