Trip Itinerary

Day 1 – Santiago Arrival Day – Travel To Nevados de Chillan

CASA guides will arrange morning pick-ups at Santiago Int’l airport or your Santiago hotel.  We start our journey traveling 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 road trip 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!

Days 2-4 Ski/Ride Nevados de Chillan

For 3 full days we explore one of our favorite ski resorts in Chile, Nevados de Chillan, which 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.

Day 5 – Travel To Santiago

After stopping at the bustling meat, produce and artisan market in Chillan for a typical Chilean lunch we head north to Santiago, Chile’s vibrant capital city, to enjoy an evening at one of our favorite local restaurants and nightlife spots.

Days 6-8 – Ski/Ride Valle Nevado/La Parva/ El Colorado

We leave Santiago and switchback our way up to the mountain village of Farellones and the Tres Valles ski complexes of La Parva, El Colorado and Valle Nevado.  Surrounded by massive Andean peaks, Tres Valles offers 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 3 nights in our cozy Andean lodge in the village of Farellones.
