Located in the 3 Valleys of the Andes (made up of La Parva, El Colorado, and Valle Nevado) just 23 miles from Santiago, La Parva has a little bit of something for everybody. Visitor’s range from beginners making the short commute from Santiago to enjoy a relaxing weekend to international ski teams, including the US Ski Team, who favor La Parva as a training center due to its well groomed steeps and challenging terrain, to extreme free riders attracted by the resort’s formidable back country access or participating in camps put on by the likes of Shane McConKey and other famous athletes.
La Parva offers a very respectable 1,000 skiable acres consisting of 20 runs but the resort is well known for its steep chutes and off piste terrain, bowls, and cornices. Additionally La Parva is famous for its phenomenal back country access that opens up a vast quantity of skiable terrain.
Let’s not fail to mention that La Parva is also interconnected by ski runs to both nearby El Colorado and Valle Nevado (separate lift tickets required) making up the resorts of the Three Valleys of the Andes and collectively representing the largest amount of skiable terrain in the Southern Hemisphere.
Round all of this out with 14 lifts including 2 quads, a quiet but modern base area with a functional cross section of amenities, 3,100 plus vertical feet of terrain, 300 inches of average annual snowfall, an elevation at close to 9,000 feet great at sustaining favorable snow conditions, and 80% sunny weather during the season, and you have La Parva, one of the most beloved ski centers in South America, beckoning you towards adventure.
