Nice long tree runs at Chapelco.
Lanin Volcano dominates the view..
It is an excellent resort because of its good lifts, forest runs, backbowls and a very good terrain park.
The views from Chapelco are amazing, you can see the Lanin Volcano eternally covered in snow most days and the surrounding forests and lakes.
Chapelco is at the start of the 7 lakes Highway one of the most beautiful sceneries in the world.
