Chile, South America – August-September 2018
There are many ways to experience skiing in South America and at the same time experience a variety of cultures in South America. We are trying to do little of both on this trip, for skiers and non-skiers. Our first stop is to ski in Valle Nevado where we can experience 3 different ski areas, Valle Nevado, La Parva and El Colorado, all three included in our lift ticket.
We are staying in Valle Nevado resort for 6 nights, with beautiful mountain views, and as our package in Valle Nevado include dinners at any of the listed restaurants, we can dine and experience different food every night. Our next stop will be 3 nights in Santiago from where we will be taking city site seeing and winery tours. One tour is to Valparaiso, a World Heritage City, and Vina del Mar the so called “Garden City”. There is just so much to explore, this is a trip you will have fun with fellow ski club members and experience a little bit of Chile, South America.
