Just a short drive out of Santiago lie some of the top slopes of the Andes at El Colorado.

Amenities such as restaurants, ski lifts, shops, a ski school, equipment rentals, and mountain lodges will provide everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Natural snow cover usually remains abundant every year, but just in case, the center is equipped with several snow cannons. Check online for various ski pass packages and discounts.

  • So much powder it was unreal! Majority of the ways to get up the mountain was by T-bar which gets tiring through the day but they do take you to better parts of mountain and it's faster than the chairlifts
  • Awesome skiing for the entire family from the beginner to expert racer. We had an amazing 2 week vacation at the resort
