Duration: one week

Valle Nevado is the ski resort in Chile most conversant with international skiers and boarders. The quality and size of the terrain, good chair lifts, and excellent service create a ski experience on a par with the best Europe has to offer. At an altitude of 3,670m (12,040 ft) above sea level and with average snowfall of 7 metres, Valle Nevado also has some of the most consistently great snow conditions in Chile. The long, wide-open groomed runs perfect for intermediate skiers and snowboarders and there is also wonderful off-piste opportunities and some pretty challenging backcountry  for the more advanced amongst you.

The resort is about a 90 minute drive from Santiago. We can combine this week with time in another ski resort or an exploration of Chile.

Day 1

Arrive in Santaigo Airport and transfer straight up the mountain to Valle Nevado base area. Settle in to your hotel - theoretically you could even ski the afternoon!

Days 2 - 7

Six full days skiing or boarding. At an altitude of 12,040 ft. and holding an average snowfall of 23 ft., Valle Nevado has some of the most consistently remarkable powder conditions in the region.

Day 8

Transfer back down to Santiago - ready for flights home or on to your next ski (or otherwise) adventure in Chile.

A mid-season price for a seven night package in Valle Nevado would cost circa £2,295 per person. This includes private transfers, accommodation, full board, ski pass and use of the many fascilities.
