Depart from your Santiago hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and relax during the scenic 25-mile (41-km) journey to the snowy slopes of La Parva. Hailed as one of Chile’s most picturesque ski resorts, the sublime scenery that surrounds La Parva is sure to impress.
On arrival, greet your expert guide and accept or decline the option of a comprehensive ski or snowboard lesson. If experienced, skip the lesson and head straight to the slopes to enjoy over 30 runs and 14 lifts on a diverse variety of terrains. If not, listen as your professional teacher takes you through the basics of snow sports, trying your hand at a mixture of maneuvers until you feel confident enough to go it alone.
Enjoy the gentle declines of the beginner slopes or, if you’re an experienced adventurer, soar and slalom from heights of up to 1,351 feet (412 meters) on a selection of advanced and intermediate runs. Refresh and refuel with a steaming coffee and light snack in one of the resort’s many restaurants (own expense) before relaxing during the return journey to Santiago.
