We book a Andes trip with a popular local company and they took us on an adventuresome trip to this ski resort where we enjoyed the views and had a beer and sandwich overlooking the mountains. There are 61 curves up the road (and down again) so be prepared for a scare or two. One person got motion sick but... More

We took a summer drive up the mountain and then realized we should have brought winter outerwear. The shrimp pilpil in the restaurant was the best prepared plate we have tried in a very long time.

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! The only thing I wasn't happy about was that they could tell you where would be better for you to start. Give you some hints! Since we were not so good on snowboarding yet! But the place... More

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
