2016 has been a snowy year and there is a lot of snow accumulated, especially in the South side of the mountain. However, the center is really not equiped to receive many people and lines form in every lift. We had a hard time looking for parking spots and buying our tickets took over an hour. Ski lifts are slow... More

Thought I would see snow while I was there in end of May, but there wasn't any. Later I came to know that the snow remains there for only 2 months from July to August. The advertisements are projected in such a manner as if there is snow throughout the season. Don't be fooled. Selecting your time to visit this... More

As a chilean with average skills, its my favorite place to go skiing. If you are more of an expert, I recommend Valle Nevado. But if you are learning or what to ski chill, it's defiantly worth your money here, because the tracks are easier and it's cheaper. Don't forget to drink a nice Juan Valdes in the afternoon!

Wow, a beautiful full service ski area at about 8000 meters. Nice accommodations including the Hotel. A market for food and other items, parking and great rates for both hotels and skiing. Had a coffee in the hotel overlooking the ski area and the Andes. Service was great. The coffee was just what we needed.
