Las Leñas in Argentina

ARGENTINA – Las Leñas in Argentina opened this past weekend, already sitting at a remarkable base depth of 1.2 meters (3.94 feet). 10 of 15 lifts are spinning on the South American resort, with plenty of trails to keep skiers and snowboarders busy.

The resort was originally planning a pre-opening on Thursday, June 20, but was forced to cancel the early opening because of avalanches, road closures, and the high quantity of snow.

Statement from Las Leñas:

“Dear all, we were excited about the pre-opening on Thursday 20/6, we put a lot of effort preparing the mountain but unfortunately the weather conditions made it impossible to do it. It was such a magnitude the accumulation of snow that even the access road had to be closed by the provincial authorities, in fact it is being worked on the R222 but it will still remain cut until the end of this storm due to the danger of avalanche (which eventually happened)

Thank you to all our visitors, collaborators, friends and suppliers for understanding the situation and having full confidence that in this kind of natural events, for us, safety comes first.

We want to ratify our will for the official opening date to be 6/29 as communicated timely, with the enormous joy of kicking off a season that hopefully will be as we are all imagining. We are expecting you with a lot, but a lot of snow all over the mountain and of course hoping the weather conditions will be with us.

Once again, on behalf of all of us who do Valle de Las Leñas S.A. we thank you for choosing us!!”
