The Basics

Ranging up to almost 11,000 feet (3,352 meters) above sea level, and with numerous ski classes available for those who need a refresher course, El Colorado is an ideal place to bring the family for a quick jump-start to the season. Almost 70 runs graze the mountain, which receives an average snowfall of 15 feet (4.5 meters) per year.

For maximum convenience, visit the resorts as part of a day trip from Santiago; tours typically include round-trip transfers and lunch at the ski resort. Depending on your budget and schedule, you can tailor tours to include a ski or snowboard lesson, mountain hikes, biking through the snow, and even sledding on an inflatable inner tube.
