The pros: I visited the park on August 22 and it wasn’t so crowded. We could go in any attraction as many times we wanted. Except the zip line (1h on the line) Cons: It’s a long way to the park with many hairpin curves. Taking some medicine for motion sickness is advisable. Can everybody tell the DJ that my dishwasher can play better music and his playlist? I brought my own lunch and advise you to do the same Don’t even try to take ski lessons there - it’s just a waste of time. Enjoy the fact that the park is very suitable for those who has never had any ski practicing before. Unless you’re staying for more than three days, consider this. Overall considering the facts above, I had some fun, especially with my daughter who was introduced to the snow.

Besides having the bad luck of entering the station with way less snow than expected (reason why the only track open was the Ski Lessons/Basic Track), I didn't have a positive experience overall, due to the main reasons below: - Crowd: Absolutely awful. Went up on a monday (29/07), already after the oficial winter holidays in Chile and off from the weekend and even so there was way more people I expected. Lines to get to the belts that take you to the highest point on the only open track as I said before could get up to 15 minutes. Basically you stay 15 minutes in the line, 2 more to reach the "top" and then 30 seconds to go down. All other rides had lines worse than that (Canopy, Tubing, etc.). - Infrastructure (Food and Drinks/Stores/Bathrooms, etc): Ok for the bathrooms (haven't seen if there was toilet paper available), but cleaningness was "OK". Stores. Food options are extremely limited and very expensive. You can definately have a healthier option paying much less if you bring food from home. One thing that bothered me quite a lot was the disorganization to get rental equipment (snowboard/skis, boots and accessories overall). Employees haven't been quite helpful and they behave to rush everyone out of the rental tent, which is very small to the amount of people they receive (specially if the site is in its first hour). Good to bear in mind that they do not provide clothing rental, equipment ONLY. Instructors: Had some basic classes and they went well. The instructors were fine and attentive. If you are focused on skiing/learning to ski, this is not the best option for you.

Before going to Parque Farellones I was afraid because of the number of negative reviews about large lines, little quantity of snow and bad customer service. In the end, after checking weather conditions and taking a tour that combines Farellones Park with Valle Nevado I decided to go. At the morning it was very crowded (many tourists from Brazil), I spend 40 minutes to drive a snow sled and a friend told me that she has spent 2 hours lining up for the canopy. I started to get disappointed, but since I have taken some sandwiches with me for lunch I save time and I was able to enjoy other activities while many people was taking lunch or lining up to buy it; by the end of the afternoon there were few people. Staff maybe is not such as kind as in other places in Chile but I didn´t get a bad service from them. Weather was amazing and ice slopes were acceptable. Farellones Park is a convenient option to enjoy the snow with your family, but try to avoid high season, weekends and holidays.

I had lots of fun with a group of friends playing around the Park. The zipline is for sure one most go activity. The park doesn’t have much structure, the restrooms are not decent and they don’t have many great options to eat with fair price.
