About Valle Nevado
Valle Nevado is a modern, international level resort, known for its powder snowboarding, good backcountry access and well maintained slopes for all levels of snowboarders. This resort is part of the Tres Valles (Three Valleys) along with neighboring resorts La Parva and El Colorado. Combined, the Tres Valles boast the largest terrain (7,000 acres) of South America.
Regarding the weather, it claims up to 80 percent sunny days, but due to its altitude and orientation, it generally maintains good, dry powder snow conditions for riders exploring the groomed slopes, bowls, and backcountry.
Valle Nevado is situated 3,670 meters above sea level and is surrounded by 6,000 meter peaks! Moreover, it is one of the few places in the world you may see the rare Andean Condor soaring above the pistes!
