El Colorado Ski Resort is one of the most emblematic ski destinations on the Chilean Mountain Range. Its beauty and its proximity to Santiago de Chile turn it into one of the most popular nooks during the winter season.
In 1930, when this white sport began to be practiced in Chile, the first wooden skis brought from Switzerland were tested at the village of Farellones.
El Colorado Ski Resort is made up by two interconnected villages which, together with the adjoining venues known as La Parva and Valle Nevado, make up the largest and best skiable surface in South America.
Featuring a maximum height of 3,333 meters MSL and a slope of 903 meters, its 1,000 hectares are visited year after year both by experts and beginners who come from other locations in Chile and all over the world.
Make up your mind and climb, ascend or rappel down the most impressive mountains in Patagonia and become a great climber.
Considered as a high risk sport, it requires physical strength of arms and legs at the same time, combined with the technical skill of the climber.
We recommend that beginners do not start by climbing on natural walls, but in artificial ones and under the assistance of a professional guide.
Patagonia has a great deal of geographical faults with remarkable geothermal and volcanic activity. These features explain the existence of various sources with hot spring waters. The diversity existing in this area of South America ranges from warm water issuing from the ground, rich in minerals, to geysers with boiling water.
