“The huge of Patagonia” with more than 2.500 meters of slopes to ski. Lanin Volcano at 3.776 meters is an emblem not only of the province of Neuquén but the entire Patagonia and that’s why it is venerated as the “Gigante empachado” (The giant surfeited ) by Araucanos. Lanin Volcano is located in a perfect region full of Araucarias and wildlife which makes this place visible from more than 200 km far.
The trail is moderate with steeps of no more than 40° of inclination so you don’t need any special technical skill but a good physical condition. What make this place very attractive to skiers are the steep slopes from the base and its Patagonian weather with the wind as the main star.
