Valle Nevado Ski Area

Valle Nevado is a high altitude resort so you can expect powder snow just like the Rockies! It is the largest skiable domain in South America with nearly 7,000 acres accessible. There are 10% Beginner (Green) runs, 36% Intermediate (Blue) runs, 33% Advanced (Red) runs and 21% Expert (Black) runs. Valle Nevado also offers extensive off-piste runs across the resort including bowls and easier terrain between groomed runs. The Sun shines on over 80% of the days during Valle Nevado’s ski season!

A ski school with outstanding teachers has been opened. It includes a new “school house”, its own lift and a 60 meter Magic Carpet. There is a large freestyle Terrain Park for boarders. Snow board lessons on three levels are also offered.

Santiago de Chile

Santiago, our post trip destination, is a wonderful old Spanish town dating back to the 1500’s!

The City of Santiago de Chile was founded by the Spanish in 1541 and has been the capitol of Chile ever since. The city is surrounded on the north, west and east by mountains and on the south by vineyards. Sights you will see, in addition to the magnificent vistas, include the central Plaza de Armes, Metropolitan Cathedral, the Museum of Natural History, Casa Colorado and the Gran Torre Santiago (the tallest building in South America)! Don’t miss the Alonso de Cordova Street famous for restaurants, shops, art galleries and entertainment. Another ‘do not miss’ attraction is the Central Market. The Club is planning several optional excursions that will include a wine country tour and a walking tour of the central city attractions.
