We did a day trip from Santiago and had a wonderful time. Valle Nevado is one of the more pricey ski centres in Chile but it's proximity to Santiago and high quality of infrastructure make it worth it. A day ski pass comes in at around US$80 while renting basic equipment will set you back a further US$60 (tip rather... More

Apart from beating the heat in Florida we lucked out with a blue sky, sunny "spring like" day for skiing. Plenty of groomed runs, nice lift options and a gondola.....We rented our clothing gear at a little shop in Patio Bellavista near our hotel to save time. Ski boots, poles and skis we rented on the mountain. The staff were... More

Great facilities for sky and snowboard. Only an hour away from Santiago. The sky instructors are amazing, really helpful and willing to make you learn.

The view alone is worth the trip, this place is just beautiful and skiing here is challenging but great. My suggestion is if you are a first timer please "take the class" Jajaja believe me you will thank me later. Skiing is easy once you know how to but very painful and frustrating if you don't.

This is one of the highest parts of the Andes close to Santiago, Chile and easily accessible by road prior to the snow season. We did a one day trip to the Ski resort and had a fabulous day. The accessible road needs to be experienced to be believed with 62 hairpin bends allowing a climb to 3000 metres where... More

The views, once you get to the highest part, are simple breathtaking. The whole mountain range is quite sunning, and most definitely worth visiting. However, the whole experience of getting there is rather disappointing. Buying a lift ticket for the only one ski lift that was operational, took forever. There was only one attendant who had no computer skills whatsoever.... More

If you ever wanted to see the longest mountain range in the world, you can get a nice view of it at Valle Nevado. The name is quite appropriate because it is a ski resort first but it is also a nice place to enjoy the mountain air in Chile. There is absolutely no smog interference with the view of... More

you can find beautiful places there. Nice snow and good view. Everthing is nice, specially when you are upping, but don't forget, you have to get down, like a snake road. God save you.
