El Colorado ski resort, Chile
+

El Colorado Ski Center is a cone-shaped peak with wide-open fields. It sits between Valle Nevado and La Parva and is closest to the Chilean capital, Santiago. El Colorado is an older resort popular with beginners and intermediates, although advanced skiers love the resort’s eastern side, which receives huge dumps of snow, and the steep chutes that face Valle Nevado. Visitors may purchase an interconnect ticket with the two other resorts.
