This week we feature the third of the Chilean ski resorts part from the Tres Puntas (Three Valleys) consisted of Valle Nevado, El Colorado and La Parva). Although the interconnection and trail networks aren’t as integrated as in French Alps’s Trois vallées, it is possible to ski from one resort to the next manly through Valle Nevado which is a one extreme. La Parva top lift shares the same ridge as Valle Nevado which divides both ski areas.
La Parva is located 50km up on a winding road from Santiago. The base of the resort is situated at an altitude of 2670m which makes its lower than it neighbours. The ski area has 20 trails on 400 hectares stretched out on a 960m vertical drop. 10 of the 14 lifts are surface lifts.
