There are two very different choices. Stay up at the resort and there are several hotels, including the five-star Gran Hotel along with a few mid-range options. These are all ski-in, ski-out and standards, facilities and ambiance lends itself to a pleasant stay, and in addition to the great skiing, the resort is also renowned for the natural hot springs where you can soothe tired muscles.

Alternatively, for those on a budget there are various lodgings in the town of Las Trancas, which is several miles down the road. However, the hassle factor of getting up to the slopes can be wearisome if your hotel doesn’t throw in complimentary shuttles. For those with a rental car the drive up to the ski resort from Las Trancas is reasonably easy and it’s much safer than some of the nasty roads up to the Tres Valles ski resorts near Santiago.
