Pastoruri Ski Field in Peru

The view towards the glacier and the ski fields in Pastoruri

Pastoruri is the only 'ski resort' in Peru. But it's not much of  a resort. There is from time to time one rope-tow on a small glacier at over 4500m that is rapidly shrinking and these days is often icy....  Access is via the town of Huaraz about 8 hours north of Lima.


Practical stuff

When to go  April and May at the end of the wet season are probably the best months.
Where to go  Fly to Lima, the capital of  Peru, then bus to Huaraz. From here there are regular tourist buses to Pastoruri in the tourist season, of June-August, and you can arrange ski hire too.
Costs  Travel and accommodation in Peru are reasonably cheap
