Valle Nevado is South America's premier ski resort, offering access to the largest amount of terrain and the most modern lift system on the continent. The Valle Nevado complex provides a complete experience, including boutique shops, three hotels, private apartments, six restaurants, a full-service spa and fitness center, cinema, library, bars and lounges, a pub with live music, a kids entertainment center and a state-of-the-art events venue, all set to the breathtaking backdrop of the magnificent Andes. Located just 90 minutes from Santiago, Valle Nevado offers 2,200 acres of varied terrain, and 17 lifts including the country's only gondola. Due to the resort's orientation and altitude at 9,924 feet, Valle Nevado on average receives the most snow of Central Valley resorts, with a seasonal average of 300+ inches. Short lift lines and few people on the slopes provides days of powder skiing after a storm. The resort has a terrain park, plenty of side and backcountry terrain, and guests spending 7 nights at the resort receive 2 interconnect tickets to neighboring resorts, opening a staggering 7,000 acres of terrain. The adventurous can book heli-skiing directly at the resort, a truly spectacular experience with vertical drops of up to 5,000 feet in one run. The 2017 season runs from June 23 to September 22. Join the resort for the 2nd Annual Chile Wine Festival from Aug. 18 - 24.

This is for sure the best Ski Resort in South America. Besides all the beautiful view, you have the fastest lift, the best snowpark.

Not too much to do without snow but to get a nice panoramic view. Don't go with MTOTOUR, very unprofessional and even dangerous , as there cheap car cannot compress downhill and they overheat the brakes!!!.

An incredible place to ski, quite close to the city (about an hour) and the snow is spectacular. Perfect for beginners and advance skiers and snowboarders. But be sure to bring a lot of cash/visa as food was really expensive. One burger without anything else...More

It's a Ski Resort, period. It's not that friendly with people that don't have experience with skiing, so if you just want to have some fun with snow, don't go there, I would recommend Farellones for that. If you don't want to ski, you can...More
