Visitor Reviews of El Fraile
Sergio Fuentealba from Chile writes:
Espectacular escenografía patagona, bosques de nothofagus y vistas al Valle Simpson con lagos y montañas.
No es el ideal para encontrar buena calidad de nieve y al infraestructura es básica, cuenta con dos lineas de ascensos de arrastre (Palto y Ancla), cuatro pistas, buen offpist. Camino precario y prístino, se debe tener cautela en todo momento.
