Chapelco was the only place with snow enough to ski so we drove from Villa la Angostura there twice. The Cerro is fun, young, and has a nice view. Unfortunatelly it was overcrowded but it was understandable.

One of the most beautiful places I´ve ever been. Good for ski and snowboard. If you´re a beginner don´t try to reach the base skiing, even if they say it´s easy, Some places to chill out in the base after ski. Have a hot chocolate and delicious churros. When you´re back to San Martin, try one of the regional restaurants... More

Having skied in three continents, I'd like to say that the slope at Cerro Chapelco is very good, with three levels of altitude, compatible with skiers and snowboarders and plenty of space. The weak points (and not so bad at all) were the lifts, which need a serious upgrading, the poorly signaled runs. None of this prevented us (my family)... More

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. Chapelco has a good spread of lifts the fastest being the newer six the others are South American slow. If you are into groomers then there... More

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!
