Skiing in Chile

Got them old summertime blues? Then how about a ski and snowboard holiday to Chile? That shoestring of a South American country, 80 percent of which is the Andes mountain range, often gets pounded by snow in July and August, and with 15 alpine resorts, many within a couple of hours’ drive of major cities, Chile may be able to cure what ails you. The most renowned ski hill in Chile — and the nation’s oldest, founded in 1948 — is Portillo. The rather isolated resort — there is very limited lodging there with one hotel — is well above tree line, but on a sparkling clear day, you’ve got 2,200 acres of wide-open and often steep terrain. Another option is to head to Valle Nevado, Chile’s largest resort at 2,200 acres. It, too, is a playground for the better skiers and snowboarders, with more than half its runs, like Portillo, rated advanced or expert. For the less experienced, check out El Colorado, which is the closest resort (34 miles) to Santiago, the country’s biggest city. El Colorado is considered an affordable locals’ ski hill with long groomers. Find great deals on lift tickets and ski passes in Chile at
