Day 1: Arrive Mendoza, Argentina. Transfer to Las Leñas and check into your hotel. (D).
Day 2: Las Leñas ski day. Adventure skiing off-piste offers half-a-million acres of uncrowded, untracked snowriding, in addition to over 40 miles of marked terrain serviced by lift. Take a snowcat above the resort by for even more vertical. (B/D).
Day 3: Las Leñas ski day. Over 4000 vertical feet (1180 M) of snowriding awaits guests, with terrain to suit all tastes. (B/D).
Day 4: Las Leñas ski day. This mega resort, with rooms for only 3000 guests, is all ski in/ski out! Enjoy casinos, fabulous restaurants, spas, swimming, discos, night skiing, shopping and all the amenities of a world class resort. (B/D).
Day 5: Las Leñas ski day. Take advantage of great winter sports activities between mid-June and October in one of the Southern Hemisphere's largest ski resorts. This is where many national ski and snowboard teams train. (B/D).
