  • When I went in July 2015 I had fun. I don't know skiing but I rented a sled (if they rent it there is more expensive). The chairlift offers a magnificent view of the ski slopes and is more exciting when you see skiers going at full speed. Another thing was in January 2016. The landscape was not the same as with snow, but the mountains are quite impressive and was all flowery. The chairlift was paid too much for what could be seen, and the bathrooms were a disaster: they had No water and were dirty.

  • The scenery is spectacular! The Andes mountain range is IMPRESSIVE. Penitentes is a ski center of low-rise, special for children (also for adults who are not expert skiing) to spend one or more days in pure fun. There are several dealers ready with the infrastructure and equipment to receive you, even with teachers who will give you the initial notions in this spectacular sport. You can park without too many problems, as long as you go early in the morning, past noon, if the climate is favourable becomes very complicated. Don't forget to pass by Penitentes, are going to enjoy.
