Trip Itinerary

Days 1-4- Santiago Arrival Day – Travel To Farellones – TresValles

Ski/Ride Tres Valles: La Parva/ El Colorado/Valle Nevado

CASA guides will arrange morning pick-ups at Santiago Int’l airport or your Santiago hotel.  After loading up we head out of the city limits 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.

Our first afternoon together is spent on the slopes of La Parva getting our ski / snowboard legs under us and our gear in order for our upcoming snow adventure. We spend 3 nights at the cozy Powder Lodge in Farellones.  Home cooked meals, a woodfired hot tub, spectacular sunsets and enthusiastic Chilean hospitality are guests highlights here.  The following 3 days are spent skiing and snowboarding the terrain in the Tres Valles region.  On day 4 after spending the day on the mountain we return for an evening in Santiago.

Day 5 Travel to Nevados de Chillan – Las Trancas

After a relaxed morning at our Santiago hotel we begin 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 before continuing to the ski pueblo of Las Trancas.  We spend 4 nights in this magical forested valley, where huge storms are known to settle in!

Days 6-8 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 (one which regularly makes its presence known); 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 in Las Trancas celebrating our day in true Chilean style.

Day 9 – Departure Day – Transport Santiago International Airport

After stopping at the bustling meat, produce and artisan market in Chillan and a typical Chilean lunch we return to the Santiago International Airport by 6pm in time for evening flight departures.
