From Punta de Vacas you get to Penitentes. The Penitentes is an important ski center. Its name due to the irregular formations that nature carved in the mountains, where it is possible to imagine the shape of a beautiful cathedral with a group of monks praying at its foot.
Opened from June to August. The rest of the year it is an excellent place to practice adventure sports.-

Address: 160 kms. from Mendoza city
