CERRO CHAPELCO



SERVICES AT CHAPELCO
Chapelco Ski School: This school has around 80 instructors, a number that increases in high season. The staff is trained to teach Alpine as well as back-country skiing, adventure skiing, hang-gliding, snowboarding and traverse skiing. Lessons in Alpine and back-country skiing and snowboarding at this prestigious school can be taken individually or in groups, depending on the preferences and levels of the skiers. Registration for the lessons is possible at the offices in Cerro Chapelco as well as in San Martín de los Andes.

On the other hand, there is also a ski clinic that covers the expectations of more advanced skiers.

Chapelco Junior Academy: specialized instructors take care of your children and teach them skiing during the whole day. The service includes lessons, transport and meals.

Chapelco Infant Club: offers integral care services for children from 2 months to 5 years of age, in three different sectors:
  1. Nursery: babies from two to 12 months;
  2. Snow Day Care: children from 1 to 5 years: the best option for the social and sporting development of children, while parents make the most of their free time.
  3. Snow Kindergarten: Skiing as a sport and recreational activity has its own characteristic features, which should be taken into account when the time comes to organize the lessons. The plans of the Infants' Club aim at the understanding and acknowledgement of these features as the child is introduced to ski learning. This process is divided into two stages: adaptation to the natural environment in which the child will develop his or her activity, and familiarization with his or her personal equipment (boots, skis, etc) for later use on the snow.
  4. Equipment Rental: the store for equipment rental is located at the foot of the hill and offers 750 alpine skiing sets, 60 for back-country skiing, mono-skis, snowboards and sledges.
  5. Repair shop: this service is provided by specialized staff.
  6. Ski Storing: with capacity for 1000 sets in heated rooms.
  7. Parking lot: with room for more than 1000 vehicles and 50 buses and most important of all, free of charge.

RECOMMENDATIONS
Clothing
It is recommended to wear Polartec clothing, waterproof jacket and pants, nylon gloves, snow-glasses and sunglasses with UV-ray protection. Socks preferably made of synthetic fiber.
It is important to apply sunscreen several times a day.

Equipment
Boots are the most important part of your equipment: they should fit properly, with one pair of socks only.
The bindings should be adjusted by a professional, according to the weight and the level of the skier.

Skiing lessons
It is highly advisable to take skiing lessons because, as you improve your style, you get less tired and can enjoy the mountain longer. You get to ski more confidently and you can broaden your ski run limits and your snow surface condition.
You may be aware of your weaknesses, but the instructor will help you to correct them gradually, thus helping you to overcome the technical level at which you may be stuck.
