Visitor Reviews of El Colorado


David Owen from Argentina writes:

El Colorado offers a bit for everyone. The front side has good groomed runs for beginners to experts and also hosts the best terrain park in Chile with over 40 features. There is also a 250 meter boarder cross course.
For me the best part of El Colorado is the east side of the cone. Steep off-piste powder runs and access to some of the best slack country terrain in the Andes; the road runs of Santa Teresita. Steep bowls, cliffs, and chutes that funnel down to the road the connects Valle Nevado resort and the Farellones village. Be sure you have an avalanche beacon, shovel and probe, and of course backcountry knowledge as this zone is not controlled. Ideally ski this terrain with a certified guided that knows the terrain. You can get easily cliffed out if you don't know where you are going. The terrain is amazing and with a vehicle you can run laps here all day.
If you prefer lift access terrain, the Cono Este and La Copa zone generally has the best snow on the mountain. New for 2012, El Colorado is expanding their terrain in this area with the new Los Pioneros surface lift, reaching the upper portion of the Valley Olympico. After a storm it can take until mid morning or noon before they open this zone, so do some warm up laps on the front side.
They are investing into the base area too with new parking lots, a big Juan Valdez Cafe, and more places to grab lunch. El Mirador is a great place to grab a apres drink and mix with the locals before your sunset descent back to Farellones.
