Luxury Ski Holidays Chile
Whilst not the most obvious destination for a luxury ski holiday, Chile is in fact a paradise for passionate skiers and snowboarders. Located between the snow-capped peaks of the Andes mountain range and the Pacific Ocean coastline in South America, Chile is a land of contrasts with hot arid deserts in the north and the chilly wilderness of Patagonia in the south. Typically, the ski season in Chile runs from mid-June to mid-October although in some years, ski touring is possible in November.
Ski resorts in Chile stretch from just north of Santiago all the way south into Patagonia. For the best powder skiing, the ski resorts of Valle Nevado and Portillo top the list. However there are a number of smaller resorts, including La Parva, El Colorado, Nevados de Chillan and Corralco which offer a variety of modern ski lifts, accommodation, activities and dining options.
A luxury ski holiday in Chile offers something a little bit different. Here you can experience the Latin American culture and cuisine including late-night dinner and dancing into the early hours of the morning. Each region has its own unique flavours and natural wonders from volcanoes to vineyards.
Adventurous skiers often come to Chile to enjoy cat-skiing and heli-skiing. With exceptionally dry snow and incredible terrain, Chile is home to some of the best heli-skiing in the southern hemisphere. With peaks in the region reaching elevations of 6,700 metres, you can expect jaw-dropping views, open bowls, steep couloirs and glacier runs.
