This area presents the incredible possibility to escape from the big city and get on skis in less than an hour. In Farellones and its surroundings you can enjoy freeride in the ski centres, but for those looking for more of an extra adventure, the area is also surrounded by fantastic touring ski areas where you can get to steeper, more extreme and remote descents.

These 3 routes are some of the many amazing routes around Farellones where you will find good slopes and the best snow conditions in the area. This is not a sector with glaciers or crevasses, but due to its varied climatic conditions and geography, the terrain has a high probability of avalanches, so to ski in these areas you must have previous knowledge and must study the region before going.

These areas are the largest skiable domains of South America, so it has good access. You can go for the day but also stay a few days and stay in Farellones mountain village, or the ski centres of La Parva, El Colorado or Valle Nevado. All of them have a friendly and familiar atmosphere, with restaurants and the potential for some entertaining evenings(!)

So for those who visit or live in Santiago during the winter season and have few days free, this is the perfect place where you can enjoy an incredible view from the mountains to the city. The area also provides some of the best sunsets in the Andes, and as if all that wasn't enough, the ski tours are pretty epic in themselves!
