Argentina’s Las Leñas ski resort has announced plans to invest in electricity generators and a water purification plant so it no longer needs to rely on the Argentinean national electrical grid nor the local water supply.
The generators are to become operational this season, and they as well as the plant are part of a $13 million (US) investment which also includes spending on a magic carpet conveyor lift for children and beginners, additional snow making equipment, and web site improvements with online purchasing of services becoming available in English and Portuguese.
Las Leñas has also upgraded their terrain park with new attractions for freestylers. The resort plans to organize three major competitions this winter, with a sponsorship from Rip Curl likely attracting professional athletes.
