Valle Nevado Review

Chile's largest ski region is a luxury resort area with 14 ski lifts that take you up to 46 runs. Intended for skiers who like a challenge, this resort has few beginner slopes. Two of the extremely difficult runs from the top of Cerro Tres Puntas are labeled Shake, and Twist. If that doesn't intimidate you then you might be ready for some heliskiing. The helicopter whisks you to otherwise inaccessible peaks where you can ride a vertical drop of up to 2,500 meters (8,200 feet).

A ski school at Valle Nevado gives pointers to everyone from beginners to experts. As most of the visitors here are European, the majority of the instructors are from Europe.
