This Cerro is a bit far from the village but the access is pretty good. The road is safe. I do not ski, so the idea was to enjoy the day with my son on the snow. So we rented a sled and played with him for hours. You can do that in an area before the entrance (so do... More

Poor snow fall meant there was little snow on the lower slopes but there was plenty higher up. The ski rental shops in San Martin de los Andes transport your skis to the slopes, and you can store your kit up at the slopes overnight - complete with a boot warmer. The runs are perhaps not quite as well marked... More

Unfortunately weather didn t help this season and snow start falling very late so slopes were not in their best shape. During the lucky snow days it called our attention that slopes weren't groomed completely but just a few slopes and part of others. Main restaurant was full every day between 12 and 13:30 so better stop for early lunch... More

Outstanding skiing! If you need to rent your gear, rent it up at the mountain. Higher quality gear and you don't need to lug it around everywhere. Worth extra 200 pesos rather than renting from in town or even the tents in the parking lot. TRUST ME! There is also a bus, koko, that goes from the center to the... More

Facilities are very good, and price is just ok. There is a local bus that takes you up there! If you are downtown you should definitely consider it, it's cheaper than hiring a shuttle every day.

A second visit to Chapelco, this time with young kids. The brilliant snow was great for play. While the slopes looked busy, there were plenty of surrounding areas in which to snap a snow fight. We discovered the opportunity to ride behind some huskies around the mountain trails. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough cash with us and there was no... More

I had the best snow days ever in Chapelco! Not only did having great friends by my side help, but the infurstructure of the ski center, not so much in machinary (lifts and stuff) but with service and variety of restaurantes throughout the mountain made everyday a different expirience! From fine wine to mexican food to pizza!!! It is a... More
