Valle Nevado ski resort just 37 miles from Santiago’s international airport amidst incredibly breathtaking landscapes in the Andes Mountains, it has some of the highest quality snow in Chile, because of its location at 3 thousand meters of height. The top of the resort is at a soaring 3,658 metres above sea level, but it sits amidst peaks that are 6,000 metres high, so it seems reasonable to say that the ski resort is in a “valley”.

Everything is carefully combined to create a unique winter experience.
