Overview

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.
El Colorado has two villages: Villa Farellones and Villa Colorado. Farellones is older, larger, more traditional and less expensive. Colorado is modern, with a hotel and several condo buidings. Less expensive lodging can be found in Santiago.
