Full description
Your experience begins from your hotel between 7:00AM-8:00AM, from where you head towards the Andes Mountain Range through a 40-bend road.

Along the way, take in Santiago from above and breathe the fresh mountain air. At approximately 10:00AM you ascend to 2,700 meters above sea level, where Farellones is located. This area is known as one of the few mountain villages of Chile.

Visit the famous center of El Colorado, before continuing your ascent towards Valle Nevado. From there, a further 20 bends in the road remain to reach a prestigious ski center located at 3,000 meters above sea level. This area is the headquarters of important championships such as snowboarding, which are held annually.
