“Pretty place, average skiing, sky-high prices”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Yes, this place is pretty, rugged mountains, decent amount of snow but the place needs some investment if it wants to compete with world class resorts. Food prices, lift passes and ski lessons are far more expensive than many European resorts which have far superior facilities. Not sure I would bother going again.

“Used to be great--now it's waning.”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Gorgeous mountain with super runs. The problem is the infrastructure. The company that owns it does not seem to be taking care of it. Also, the offerings apres-ski are pretty sparse compared to what you might find in Aspen or Vail.

“Adventure ski trip”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Las Lenas has great potential with awesome rugged mountains but unfortunately we struck a very poor snow season.Still had some very good piste skiing with my Austrian private guide.The whole resort is somewhat tired and needs upgrading.

“Ski, ski ski!”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Wonderful place to sky, slopes well maintained and brand new lifts! The atmosphere is fun!

But the accommodation was the worst!
These Aquarius building was terrible, I called for maintenance and they never show up!
But you spent all the time outside skiing so you can survive!
It seems that all the buildings are from the sixties and got stuck there.

“Overrated and overpriced”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Just spent three days skiing at Las Lenas and staying in Malargue. Thoroughly disappointed, especially after all the hype. Not a world-class ski resort in my mind, but instead an overpriced and overrated mountain, with horribly slow lifts, not enough trails, and little challenging terrain unless you go off-piste. Also very unwelcoming to day-trippers: there's no lodge for getting ready in the morning, or taking a break during the day, and they charge an outrageous amount for a locker. Unless you're an expert skier who plans to spend most of the time off-piste (provided there's enough snow for that to be possible), it's not worth it.
