Antillanca Ski Center
Surrounded by volcanoes and the lovely backdrop of Puyehue National Park, Antillanca was founded in¬†1951, when Carlos Buschmann, representative of the Club Andino de¬†Osorno, set up¬†the first refuge¬†for skiers in the area.¬†This refuge was named¬†Antillanca, meaning "jewel of the sun" in the Mapuche language.
Adequately equipped with an optimal hotel infrastructure,¬†this ski center has earned¬†a name for itself amongst the national ski complexes, due to its¬†excellent snow conditions for all types of skiers. Other remarkable features¬†are the freeride¬†slopes and cornices, most appreciated by snowboarders.
The center is equipped with four drag lifts and one chair lift. It also¬†features a hotel, a homemade¬†food restaurant, a pub that functions as a fast food restaurant during the day, nursery, gym, television room, conference room, game room, and dance club.
