Las Leñas is unlike any ski village you have ever experienced. It lies high in the Andes and includes 650,000 acres of gigantic alpine ski terrain. Its architecture is non-traditional using lots of rock with few right angles and gives the impression its buildings are leaning back against the moon - like landscape.
Las Leñas spans two incredible ski domains. There is skiing for all abilities and styles; off-piste skiers will find uncrowded slopes offering enormous potential to enjoy untracked powder at a leisurely pace. Several nearby sights await you in the Los Molles Valley. The thermal waters of the Saldo River and the Pozo Delas Alnimas offer a breathtaking 3000 foot deep underground lagoon. International skiers should not miss the experience of Las Leñas.
