Fantastic runs. Beautiful conditions. Wonderful scenery. I am a fan! Food and wine selection at the lounge is also quite fantastic. It is true. The best skiiing/boarding ive done is always after a few. But this place needs not those few.

Hi! I´m chilean, live in Santiago, and love to ski. I sincerely can say that the best place for skiing is definitely Valle Nevado, is only 2 hours by bus from Santiago. From all the Sky Centers this is the highest, so have the best snow and the best trails in Chile. You can go by bus from Apoquindo street (it leaves at 8am - 9 am and return to the same place at 6pm). If you are in Santiago, you dont want to miss Valle Nevado. Here for information about the bus: http://www.skitotal.cl/eng/

Santiago - Valle Nevado is the most dangerous road i have ever been, ask the driver to go slow, they think they have experience and like to drive fast.
The resort is ok, hotels are just fine, food is not good. They are also missing good lifts, the snow is very good, dry powder, but without trees. Valle is the best place to ski or snowboard in South America.
Also is close to Santiago where you can spend some days visiting during the same trip.

To be honest I'm not a big fan of the Valle Nevado ski resort...sure there's the proximity to the city (2 hours depending on the road conditions) and the commodity of staying in a hotel in the city and going there and coming back on the same day.
But for me it's just too "commercial" and there's too many beginners and people who haven't done any skiing/snowboarding before.
If you're going to Santiago and the ski resorts in the Andes for the first time then this is certainly a good spot, but if you're more seasoned and are looking for a place to spend a week or two doing some good pistes I would recommend looking at the other resorts. There are plenty of great ones, like Portillo, Chillán, Pucón...
