Part of the appeal of Chapelco Resort is its proximity to San Martín de los Andes, one of Argentina’s most charming Lake District villages. Chapelco has not undergone deforestation and so bountiful tree skiing through forests of beech covered with “Beard of the Devil” lichen adds to the magic of Chapelco’s atmosphere. The resort has 12 lifts including a brand-new high-speed quad and a gondola, and 20 groomed trails plus steep backcountry bowls.
A variety of hotels (one- to five-star), motels, resorts, apartments, cabins, and camping establishments are available in the city of San Martin de los Andes.
Ski and snowboard school, rentals, cafeteria, daycare center, phones, and information center are located in the base lodge.
