We visited the valley for the views of the Andes and the ride up the valley (60 hair pin bends). We were not disappointed - spectacular views in all directions (bar the smog above Santiago). We even managed to see about 10 condors all flying together!

As Australian skiers it doesn't take much to impress us but Valle Nevado has blown us away every time we have visited Chile. No resort entry fee, no parking fee, no lift queues, no oversnow taxi, it was amazing. In Victoria we would have shelled out about $500.00 before even reaching the snow line. Enough whinging. The drive up is... More

We love this place, great skiing, reasonable temperatures and fantastic service and setup. Year two is gone but we're already thinking about going back next year. There are a lot of facilities for kids and new skiers but there are also great runs for more advanced athletes as well as lessons for those at any level (both group and private).... More

The place is so beautiful!!!! To get there is trick I was glad we had a experienced driver! The view is so amazing!

Relatively short drive from Santiago considering it's a city of 8 million people. Theres a good chance youll need chains in your tires to get up the final mile to the resort as the last mile of the winding road up can be icy. Short lift lines, lift tickets are about half the price of Colorado, US resorts. Fantastic trails,... More

The road is a zig zag and the view is great. The sky station was close but it was nice to play with the snow and to try a pisco sour!
