Argentina’s Largest Ski Resort Announces Opening Day

Las Leñas, Argentina’s largest ski resort by vertical drop, has finally announced an opening day following a slow start to the season.

The resort will begin the Winter 2023 season on Saturday, July 8th. Despite an opening day announcement, Las Leñas’ webcam shows that they’re still lacking snow.

“Open: Sector 1.  Apollo and Jupiter opening confirmed with good quantity and quality of snow, approximately 1.50 meters accumulated. Neptune and Venus opening of tracks confirmed, daily evaluation of the same.

Sectors 2 and 3: Closed.”

Las Leñas is accustomed to opening in late-June, but warm weather and rain storms have put a damper on the beginning of the season.

Now, with at least some snow covering the mountain, Las Leñas will kick things off this weekend.
