Valle Nevado

Valle Nevado (Avenida Vitacura 5250, Vitacura, Santiago) – opened in 1988, this is a ski resort complex located 46 km. east of Santiago (on the El Plomo foothills in the Andes Mountains). Some just ski (and/or conduct other winter sports) for the day, while others book full-fledged vacations here, since a number of hotels and apartments (available for rental) are located here. The peaks here include “El Plomo” (17,814 feet), “La Paloma” (16,108 feet), “El Pintor” (13,123 feet), and “El Bismark” (15,255 feet).
