Las Lenas has an amazing amount of easily accessed off-area skiing that you can get to by traversing, climbing or skinning. It has a 4,000 vertical lift served mountain and you can hit several 2,500+ vertical faces around the area with only an hour or two hike, or arrange a shuttle and ski off the back and get 4,500 verts. I consider it the biggest screw up of my ski career that I did not take backcountry gear when I went there. If you go make sure that you hit "The Necklace." You just give your passport number to the patrol, they give you a colored sticker for your pass, and the ski area boundaries disappear.
