Los Penitentes

Los Penitentes Travel Guide

Literally translated to 'the penitents', this ski resort's name is derived from the curious forms the ice on the mountain sides make, reminiscent of 'penitents' praying on their knees, thought to be formed by the strong winds of the Andes. Located around 110 miles (180km) from Mendoza, Los Penitentes boasts 300 hectares (741 acres) of skiing with 28 pistes, incorporating every type of run from beginner and intermediate to advanced and expert runs, many of which are used for various competitions.The resort may be smaller than many of its Argentinean counterparts, but it features ski schools, a kindergarten, a shopping centre, a variety of restaurants, a snow garden where parents can leave their kids for the day, and a disco to heat things up on those cold winter nights. The ski season at Los Penitentes lasts from mid-June to August.
