The travelling botanist, Strobell, entered Argentina on an expedition and stayed in a region he named the 'Valley of the Yellow Firewoods' in 1860. More than 100 years later, as a result of numerous studies, the Valley of the Yellow Firewoods was choosen as a place best suited to be a ski center in 1979. In January of 1983 construction of the ski center had begun. By July of that year, the center opened with a hotel with 300 beds.

Hello Ski Affecianadoes.
I am an Aspen, CO native who cut his teeth on Aspen ski areas. As a traditional alpine skier I have sought out the worlds best slopes. I am here to give you a big thumbs up if you ever want to consider a summer trip to ski paradise (those of us who live in the northern hemisphere) Las Lenas delivers. As a Leo I always wanted to ski on my birthday (aug) well in Aug-Sept 2000 I traveled to Las lenas with a group of my hardcore ski buddies and what a delite. If you had to pick one ski lift in the whole world and you could only pick one. Your choices are immense. I would pick the "marte" as one of my favs. This puppy delivers some serious vertical and accesses a ridge line for many drops over 3000 vertical feet on slopes ranging from 40 degrees to I would guess 50 degrees on "Eduardo's". This resort delivers. Ski on comrades...Hank
