Having been recognised as among the best in the business by voters at the World Ski Awards, Breaking Travel News here chats with Juan Cruz Adrogue, president of Chapelco Ski Resort, to find out how it feels to have won
Breaking Travel News: Congratulations – Chapelco Ski Resort has been recognised as Argentina’s Best Ski Resort by voters at the World Ski Awards. How does it feel to have taken the prestigious title?
Juan Cruz Adrogue: We are proud to have been able to keep the ski resort open for residents and local visitors, during August and September this year, offering a safe and high-quality service.
We are grateful to the community of San Martín de los Andes that chose to enjoy responsibly the mountain.
Thanks to the skiers from all over the country who wanted to come but could not, and supported us from far away, as well as to the foreigners who supported us from much further afield.
Thanks, too, to the Chapelco staff.
Thanks to our partners – it was a great challenge that we carried out together with prudence and respect.
We celebrate the brave decision and our commitment from the beginning to open the resort in the midst of uncertainty without any financial speculation and supporting our community.
We thank the national, provincial and local authorities for working together.
This recognition fills us with happiness, pride and is definitely a caress to the soul for the entire Chapelco family.
We feel that this year this award is worth double.
We will meet again in 2021 to enjoy Chapelco – and we already started working for that day.
Until then, let us keep taking care of ourselves.
