La Parva is frequented by upscale Santiago residents, many of whom own private condos here. Given that La Parva is closer to Santiago than Valle Nevado, this is an excellent day ski resort, and there are plenty of groomed and off-piste runs for all abilities. Fourteen lifts access 30 square kilometers of skiable terrain. The ski area climbs a long ridge, like Aspen Highlands. Adventure skiers love La Parva’s steep chute at La Chiminea, Cerro and La Cara, a steep south facing wall.
