Most people consult your web page during the winter months. As an alpine botanist who has worked on the high elevation flora in the Farellones- La Parva- Valle Nevado area, for over 25 years, I find the weather information very useful for planning my ecological experiments which take place during the spring, summer and autumn months.

Since there is only a listing for Farellones, I will include all three resorts in the area; Colorado, La Parva, and Valle Nevado. All three are are interconnected and can be potentially ridden on a single day. Contrary to established reputation, La Parva by far has the longest, steepest runs, plenty of expert shit that can be accessed through short hikes, and the smallest crowds, thus making it the best of the three in my humble opinion. Valle Nevado is OK but there just isnt enough interesting terrain and caters very poorly to enthusiasts such as myself. Colorado is basically a big open cone with little variety except for the backside and the incredible out of bounds sta. teresita which takes you down to the Valle Nevado road. Start spreading the word though and make La Parva #1.

Farellones deservs to be the first mountain ski village in Chile where the winter sports have begun. It is only 1:20 from the Santiago International Airport.From here you may connect to Colorado, La Parva and Valle Nevado Ski Center, wich as a whole are the largest skiable domain in the southern hemisphere.Here you''ll find great mountain atmosphere, the most traditional house buildings and the exclusive Hotel Posada de Farellones, with more than 65 years in Hotel service.
