Just as the rest of the world packs away their gear for the summer, down in Chile the ski season is just getting started!
Skiing in Chile brings new dimensions even for seasoned skiers used to the famous (and busy) resorts of North America and Europe. Where else can you ski right into a volcano, and ride a snowcat onto your very own private mountain? Heli-skiing? Check. Thermal springs? Of course!
On top of this there are unique conditions and seasons to be aware of, plus also plenty of resorts and ski areas to choose between.
Knowing where to start can get overwhelming!
This guide describes the main ski areas and resorts; their peak seasons, main appeal, and what to expect at each one. You’ll also find useful trip planning information on all the other special Chilean ski experiences: snowcats, heli-skiing, volcano skiing, and much more.
If you’re looking for a change, or fancy catching some summer snow, this is the place to be.
Welcome to Chile!
