Cerro Catedral (Bariloche) is the largest and most expensive: High season day ski pass AR$ 300 (2012)

Cerro Perito Moreno (El Bolson) is the smallest and cheapest: High season day pass AR$150 (2012)

Expect both to be more expensive this year with inflation!

Sorry I've never been skiing near Santiago.

Depends of your ski level. One thing you must to know that South American's prices are high. I've been in US and Canada paing less for lift tickets... and the food up there are expensive too. A good del is to take a kind of "all inclusive" hotel. They offer breakfast and dinner. A lunch can be done without charge - sandwiches and fast foods (in Chile).

I really think that Argentina is cheaper, but the lifts takes a life to goes up. They are working on it. To a good trip I would recommend - El colorado / Chile - 2 hours from Santiago. As soon you're up there , you dont need transfer, your bedroom is in the lift line, and you also can reach Valle Nevado's lines and do lots of easy, medium and black routes. It's cheaper than Vale Nevado, the lifts work better than Argentina. They have a brand new snowpark and the better dates are in august. Here depends the weather and the snowcast - take a look in related websites.

Good trip.
