Las Lenas is an impressive ski resort. It sits above the tree line. This feature provides clear views of most of the trails. Therefore there are few surprises.
The resort has an extensive ski program for children. A few caveats about those programs:
1. For the most part the instructors only speak Spanish. Some have a working knowledge of English.
2. There is no section of the mountain dedicated to the children's program. The students use the same chairs and poma lifts as adults. The problem is that the chairs and poma lifts are not sized or calibrated for a five year old. Special attention must be applied when a very young student gets on and gets off the chair. The students have to wait at the base until a solo adult skier will sit on the lift with them. The poma lift presenedt a unique challenge to very young skiers (6&under) since they are calibrated for adults. Quite often, my 6 year old son caught air going up the mountain on the poma chairs.
The resort is remote. We flew into Marlague airport and then took a 75 minute bus ride to the resort. On our return, Marlague was closed due to wind conditions. Our scheduled five hour door to door journey then became a 23 hour journey that involved a 450 kilometer bus ride, three airports, three baggage retrievals, and two immigration check points.
Even after this epic journey, my five year old daughter said she would like to return the following week. Me, I am not so sure.
