I've been reading that thread in Powder ( great photos !! )
: , and there are some things that may be useful for the bears to know:
Ther are many options that I never mentioned , because they are not reliable for somebody coming specially from the U.S. to ski.
I've slept everywhere in or near LL ( when I was younger ), but many are not experiences to recomend to a friend( and some not even to an enemy) [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]
The lift tickets alone cost between $ 120 to 190 per week depending the month .
The cost per person in 5 to 7 persons per room is MUCH cheaper , but of course there's not much intimacy if you need it .
Prices can be as low as $260 a week with lifts included in the low season.
Another good , but difficult to arrange option , is to contact a private owner of an apartment and rent direct from him , but the owners usually rent the whole winter to the travel agencies.
The cheapest rooms are in the Club Andino ( I guess is about 9 dollars a night , no food no bus no lifts ), I've being there once ,but you will feel like a gold miner in the Yukon , and there's no way ( that I know )to book in advance , either you find a place or not, usually don't .It's also 500m from the road near Los Molles.
The Hualum and other Los Molles hotels, sometimes are a little cheaper , but , at least for me , the ski in /out advantage is too good to miss , for a few dollars a week. I will find out and post their prices anyway ( remember that I'm going there myself and I have to check everything first!!!!
Sorry for the intromission ,Bears ,I don't claim to be the world's authority in Argentine skiing , but after 20 years of going to LL almost every year , believe me , I know the area pretty well , and would hate to find any of you up the proverbial creek ! [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
But if money is really tight , let me know and I can tell you all the alternatives .
