Valle Nevado Snowboard Tour
Join us in Chile this June. We spend our days riding the linked resorts of Valle Nevado, El Colorado and La Parva. The mountain here is one giant playground, full of natural features – windlips, cornices, gullies, and more. Plus, we’ve got direct access to some of the best heli-ski zones in South America.
Our guides focus is on taking guests to zones and places you wouldn’t necessarily find on your own. Hidden stashes, short hikes to untouched lines during the day and locally sourced meals paired with some of the best wine in the world in the evening. Your guide will decide on riding spots each day based on weather and snowfall. This flexibility ensures that we will find you the best snow and conditions all day, every day!
We stay in slope-side twin share accommodation along the way and at the end of each riding day, we’ll enjoy apres at the locals bar, live music, or even a soak in the hot pool merely steps away from the hotel.
Add a city stopover in Santiago to explore this amazing city. During the day you can take in the street art, museums, architecture and pedestrian malls of the Centro. In the evening, we’ll check out the nightlife and party scene at the sidewalk eateries, cafes and beer halls of Bellavista.
Why should Chile be on your snowboarding bucket list?
The terrain is top notch, the locals friendly, the food distinctive, and the culture unique. Though Chile may seem out of reach without a dedicated travel budget, it’s worth a bit of planning and saving to make it happen and Valle Nevado is the type of place you can spend one week or an entire winter.
Valle Nevado resort is nestled atop 55 switchback turns, 9,000 feet above sea level in the Tres Valles region of the Chilean Andes. To say it’s a well-known snowboarding destination would be a vast understatement; an almost innumerable amount of video parts have taken place here. It’s one giant playground, full of natural features—windlips, cornices, gullies, and more. Plus, it’s got direct access to some of the best heli-ski zones in South America. The Andes Mountains are the second-highest in the world and the vertical drop on any given run can be as much as 5,000 feet or more. Many seasoned skiers including the guides themselves frequently say that heli-skiing at Valle Nevado is comparable to Alaska — but with longer runs. Very few operations in the world can claim the dramatic scenery or the vertical drop found here in the snowy Andes. This is adventure at its wildest!
