By staying in the center of Santiago you are subject to be the first to be picked up at your hotel, and the latest to be delivered back to your hotel. When you then ski at Valle Nevado you are also the last to be at the slopes and the first to have to leave the slopes. This adds up to 7h of travel for a 5.5hours of skiing. Lots of time is lost at Colorado where everyone has to get his/her equipment and clothing if you don't bring your own. All mediocre quality and the skies are OK-quality for a day but don't expect anything special or even sharpened skies. All in all an OK day because of the great weather and snow but everything else is something to avoid.
Great tour for beginners! Our 2 hour lesson was with 2 instructors for 4 people. After the drive and picking up equipment, there is still around 5-6 hours to ski/snowboard. Also note you can hire all equipment including snow pants and jackets on the day.
I had a wonderful time skiing. Our guide took good care of us and took us where we were supposed to be and then we were left to ski the rest of the time. Great skiing!
It is a long way to get there but the ski centre was very nice. We were at the beginning of the season, during the week, so it was very quiet on a perfect sunny day. The ski rentals can be better.
I do not recommend this unless you've never skied before. They provide all gear and ski wear, but force you to take a lesson and then the lift ticket you are provided is not good for the entire mountain and is only good for the most basic trails. I also made contact on multiple occasions to confirm the pick up from Santiago and they only spoke spanish, so I had to get the hotel to make those calls.
Great day on the hill. Everything went smoothly and my guide/driver was amazing on such a crazy road!
Skiing was fantastic, but time on the slopes was extremely disappointing 4.5 hours out of a 12.5 hour day due to tour company logistics for ski/boot pick-up total of three hours of wasted time. We were picked up at 7:30am at our hotel, but stopped for skis/boots at El Colorado, about 1.5 hours out of the way. Bus did not have ski rack ??? so skis/boards were shoved underneath seats and aisle, making for an uncomfortable ride to Valle Nevado, and a pretty interesting walk up the aisle of the bus in ski boots. Arrived at Valle Nevado at 11:45. Guide didn't speak English, so found out from others on the tour that we needed to be back at the bus at 4:30pm. Dropped off skis/boots another 1.5 hours out of the way. Arrived back at hotel at 8pm. Definitely do NOT recommend this tour. Very disappointed in Viator for not disclosing full details.
Among all the Viator tours we've done over the years, this is the worst! We were picked up over 30 minutes late from our hotel. Our ski instructor only spent 10 to 15 minutes with us. From the moment we started, the ski instructor told us he didn't have much time so he showed us the basics and told us to practice on our own. Our tour guide also didn't set expectations - he left us with the ski instructor and didn't tell us what time he would come back to pick us up! Going with this tour operator is not worth it at all.
Every expectation was met by the crew. Skiing was hard! But the tour was well worthwhile.
