  • Great ride! I'm against guides and tour packages. So I suggest rent a car and go to Mendoza to the border! Unique landscapes of you running out of words! Place and wonderful, exhausting 2 hours drive but worth it. ... Food in Penitentes and awful not to expect anything or better like what you have in small restaurants and only!!!

  • A ski resort is small compared to the snowy Valley in Santiago or cerro catedral in Bariloche. But has an incredibly handsome visual (see the photos). I think super worth it for those visiting Mendoza spend a day here. Has 2 tracks good for beginner, plus exclusive track for who's learning (lessons). I thought the weakest infrastructure. Few dining options, anywhere you have Wi-Fi. A few bathrooms ... but nothing detrimental to the ride. We ate a delicious empanadas de queso at a kiosk near the runway of beginners. About prices, pay for people: 450 roundtrip transfer, rental equipment 350, 650 intermediaries pass to the lifting equipment. The prices of the passes you'll find on the site of the station, are according to the season and the type of use. If you liked this tip, please click to enjoy

  • We were 2 days and had a great. It was our first time. We were a bit disoriented at first. It took us to the time of discovering all the alternatives of lifts, hire snow clothing, equipment for skiing, glasses, sunscreen, etc. They are things that you should study and prevent before you travel. It is somewhat expensive for national tourism but the landscape is worthwhile. Impressive natural beauty. It is highly recommended to take ski lessons (I regret not having done). Great fun, especially for those who can do them from all the outstanding.
