About Chapelco Ski Resort


Cerro Chapelco is near the chocolate-box Patagonian village of San Martin de Los Andes in the southwest corner of the lovely Neuquén Province. This puts it squarely within the beautiful Lakes District of Patagonia, Argentina. The massive Volcano Lanìn sitting on the border with Chile and Argentina, dominates the landscape.

The resort is approx. 930 miles (1,500 km) southwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina’s bustling capital city. Bariloche is just under 120 miles (190 km) away by car. 

Ranked as Argentina’s best ski resort in 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019 by World Ski Awards, Chapelco sits majestically above the Lacar Lake in the National Park Lanìn and hosts one of the best ski and snowboard scenes in South America.

Chapelco offers 4000 skiable acres. In the future, the resort expansion looks to push deeper into the back bowl creating more expert lift-accessed terrain currently accessed only on guided trips or those that are backcountry savvy.
