Chile travel

Skiing and Snowboarding

Have a blast at over 2,000 meters above sea level! Visit one of Chile’s many ski resorts and appreciate these world-class slopes – an essential destination for skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts in the austral winter.

Head for the Andes and discover a pure white paradise for snow and sports enthusiasts. Dare you tackle some of the foremost ski slopes in South America? Chile has areas ideal for both beginners and more seasoned skiers.

Just a few kilometers from Santiago, the famous Valle Nevado, La Parva and El Colorado ski resorts cling to the steep Andean flanks. Ride the extensive chairlifts, enjoy long descents and dare to try exhilarating torchlit night skiing.

Are you a born thrill-seeker? Then try the steep slopes of Portillo, near the Andean pass that leads to Argentina; here the abundant snow cover provides the ideal soft landing as you practice tricks and turns on your skis or snowboard.

Don’t miss the southern ski resorts either; demonstrate your skills on the rollers, rainbows, rails and kinks and reach for the sky with each jump! If you still have energy to burn, how about heliskiing? Explore untouched mountain tops on skis or snowboard and enjoy awe-inspiring views of the craters and volcanoes.
