Full review

Las Lenas is one of the coolest places I have ever been skiing. The terrain is sick! Lots of ripping lines, lots of peaks and tours to do. Incredible lines with no one around. The great majority of this is only accessible if the MARTE chair is open. Out of 8 days there, the MARTE chair was only running 3 days. But those 3 days were awesome. That is the one thing you have to work with and gamble on. Good runs of VULCANO lift too if you are willing to hike. Kept us entertained for a few days, but got old hiking a lot. There isn't very much night life there... cheap beer though! And the women are the most beautiful I have ever seen. Wow. It is quite the trek to get down there too - we took the 16 hour bus from Buenos Aires, but was totally worth it. Definitely an awesome experience. This place is all about the skiing - if you are looking for anything else like nightlife, culture, food, nice groomers, etc you are in the wrong place. And you have to like wind, a lot. You can definitely count on it being windy the entire time you are there. But if you are able to get some MARTE days out of the trip, everything is worth it. We are avid backcountry skiers and mountaineers, so it was a great spot for us. Many of the rowdiest lines I have ever skied. Don't think it would be that great for a beginner or intermediate skier though. We are already planning a trip for next year!
