For the next 3 full days you will explore one of Chile’s most epic ski resorts, Nevados de Chillan. Chillan is a relatively ‘undiscovered’ snow paradise offering big descents, a lunar-like landscape with many ski touring opportunities, and some of the most consistent snow in the Andes. All types of terrain are on offer, from long groomed slopes and the gentle ‘Tres Marias’ lava tubes to adventurous steeps in the Pirigallo Valley and steaming summits of the Chillan volcanoes satisfies a wide variety of adventure appetites. The evenings are spent celebrating in true Chilean hospitality with a variety of locally owned restaurants in one of the most authentic ski villages in Chile, Las Trancas.

Offering wide-open volcanic slopes and plenty of touring opportunities the group will spend 3 days enjoying this off the beaten track Chilean gem.  Days on the mountain are complimented by enjoying hot springs soaks and more authentic Chilean hospitality in Malacahuello.
