Valle Nevado, the largest and most modern ski resort of Chile’s Three Valleys – Valle Nevado, La Parva, and El Colorado.
Located 9,925 feet above sea level, Valle Nevado is just 37 miles from Santiago in the heart of the Andes Mountains. It is the youngest ski resort in South America featuring state of the art facilities. It’s been totally renovated recently and in 2013 opened the first gondola chairlift in the country.
Valle Nevado boasts 23,000 acres of terrain, with 23 miles of slopes all above tree line. In comparison, Whistler/Blackcomb in Vancouver BC offers 7,000 acres. If that doesn’t sound like enough terrain, you can upgrade your lift pass, for an additional charge, to access both El Colorado and La Parva from Valle Nevado via surface lifts! This interconnect ticket comes free of charge when you book a 7-night stay at Valle Nevado.
With thousands of acres of skiable terrain, and heliski access to an extensive back-country bowl, there are more options for every type of skier. There are more than enough beginner and intermediate slopes and experts will love Valle Nevado’s steeps, chutes and off-piste terrain.
For snowboarders, Valle Nevado has one of the best terrain parks in South America including FIS certified boarder and skier-cross course.
Valle Nevado is a ski resort designed to accommodate both the unlimited practice of winter sports and plenty of fun and relaxation. All the infrastructure needed is in place: three hotels, a growing offering of apartment rentals, eight restaurants, bars, a pub, a heated pool, fitness center, gymnasium, child care center and a wide variety of stores. All these elements combine to make the winter experience here definitely stand out from anywhere else in the world.
