Services: Lift Facilities and Trails

Trail Flattening

Trails are maintained with 7 snow-flattening Kässbohrer Geländedefahrzeug AG machines, ensuring an even surface, including walls, drops, slopes, and hard-to-reach places. At the bottom, we use a special machine that redistributes and evenly spreads the snow, besides, cross-country skiing trails are appropriately maintained and conditioned.

Artificial snow

It has an artificial snow system in place extending from the base to an Altitude of 480 m, up to the Intermediate station of Chairlift "Las Piedras," with 19 (Technoalpine) snowguns every 200 meters. This ensures the correct snowmass down to the bottom during the entire season.

Lift facilities

Lift facilities are strategically located and fitted with world class technology. They were conceived and located for an optimum use of the entire mountain, broadening the snowmass and enabling to carry up to 12,000 people per hour. The resort has 7 lift facilities with 4 people seat ski lifts and 6 platter lifts: 3 Teleskis and 4 Magic Carpets.
