Optional Santiago city tour and wine tasting excursion
Price based on double occupancy
Valle Nevado is Chile's most developed ski resort and is both modern and convenient. It has the fastest lift in South America, the Andes Express. Valle Nevado is close to Santiago and the airport making for a short transfer. It is the primary ski resort of Chile's 3 Valleys Valle Nevado has the most skiable terrain and widest range of skiing.
It's not only the newest winter resort in Chile, it is also the largest and most modern. Valle Nevado has several new lifts which include access to previously difficult to reach powder areas. Fortunately the goods remain out of sight from the public so you can keep filling up on untracked powder. And with the bonus interconnect passes you can really experience why las Tres Valles is the largest ski area in South America. Located at 3,025 meters (9,922 ft.) above sea level, 60 km. (37 miles) from Santiago, Valle Nevado boasts a skiable surface area of 2,225 acres and an 2,657 feet drop with 25 miles of groomed runs! Valle Nevado is enormous. This resort could hold Whistler, Vail, Jackson Hole, and Snowbird all within its boundaries, and this does not even include the backcountry possibilities. Together with La Parva and El Colorado-Farellones, these three ski centers form the largest skiing area in South America. In addition, the center has the capacity to create snow and cover 30% of the surface area. There is a helicopter available in Valle Nevado that takes skiers and snowboarders to altitudes of 4,500 meters (14,760 ft). Accompanied by experience guides, you can descend slopes of untouched snow and drop more than 2,000 meters (6,560 ft.), sliding down the steep hillsides of the majestic Andes Mountain Chain.
