CASA guides will arrange morning pick-ups at Santiago Int’l airport or your Santiago hotel. We will spend the day enjoying the sights and tastes of Santiago then get some rest before starting our Andes adventures. Our hotel is in the Las Condes neighborhood, referred to as “Sanhattan”, with numerous great eateries where we have our welcome dinner.
Surrounded by massive Andean peaks, Valle Nevado, La Parva and El Colorado offer expansive terrain options from in bounds cruisers and open bowls to some of Chile’s premier lift-accessed backcountry, including private shuttles on Santa Teresa. We spend 2 nights in our cozy Andean lodge in the village of Farellones. After skiing on day 4 we head back to Santiago and an evening enjoying the vibrant Chilean capital city and our favorite local restaurants and nightlife.
We journey south to the powder capital of Chile, Nevados de Chillan. En route we stop at the Miguel Torres winery for a 4-course lunch and wine pairing. The party continues to the ski pueblo of Las Trancas where we spend 4 nights in this forested magical valley, where huge storms are known to settle in!
For 3 full days we explore our favorite ski resort in Chile, Nevados de Chillan. The resort offers thousands of vertical feet to descend; a lunar-like landscape including 3 volcanic peaks; and continues to be a relatively ‘undiscovered’ snow paradise. Nevados features everything from long groomed slopes and the gentle Tres Marias lava tubes to adventurous steeps in Pirigallo Valley and steaming summits of the Chillan volcanoes. Our evenings are spent celebrating our day in true Chilean style.
Today we return to Santiago. After making a stop in the city of Chillan and visiting its famous meat, produce and artisan market we head north and arrive at Santiago International Airport by 6 pm.
