Valle Nevado La Parva and El Colorado, Ski Resorts Review
Three thousand six hundred metres up in the Andes, a golden triangle of ski resorts shimmers beneath the Chilean sun.
The awe inspiring peak of El Pomo towers above the twin valleys in which three of South America's best ski areas nestle shoulder to shoulder: La Parva, Valle Nevado and El Colorado/Farellones.
With over 100km of prepared trails and more than 40 lifts between them, they form the biggest playground for skiers and snowboarders in South America.
Valle Nevado is possibly South America's most modern ski resort. Reminiscent of Val Thorens, Valle Nevado is purpose built, high altitude ski in ski out ski resort.
