Overview

Nestled in the southern Andes on the slopes of the Chillán volcano, this resort offers a good variety of ski terrain and beautiful views. Travelers arrive from Santiago via train or plane. The unique feature of this resort is its natural outdoor thermal pools, a luxurious spa, and a casino; the resort is also the only ski center in Chile that has a neighboring town, Las Trancas. Termas shines for its fantastic backcountry terrain for advanced and intermediate skiers and snowboarders, but lift service at the top is via drag lifts.
