    Valle Nevado - is the most popular with tourist. Portillo - is for more experienced skiers. La Parva, is the closest to Santiago and tends to attract beginners. Then Colorado and Farallones have a mix. almost 5 years ago

    Hi there ,

    Just inquiring about how to do snow boarding on the cheap in Chile ?

    Can you rent cheap houses there or any where ?

    can you buy cheap 2nd hand snow boards etc ?

    how long does it take from santiago to the slopes ?
