Here visitors can enjoy a variety of clear blue skies and fresh chilean snow as all three of these world class ski areas are located very closely to one another and are connected between them. They all together becomes the biggest and the best skiing and snowboarding area of southern emisphere with 2400 hectares (5930 acres) of skiable areas.
Accomodation at Farellones (a little mountain village with easy access to El Colorado and La Parva Ski areas) is available for those looking for a mountain lodge and cheaper budget, we offer and recomend Hotel Farellones and Blue Tambo Hotel.
Chile`s Southern Andes Mountain is not only famous for having great ski and snowboard areas, plenty of green forests and nice accomodation facilities but for it hot springs that every winter offers the perfect scene to relax, have a massage in a nice spa and let your self be amazed by Andes Mountains Inmensity.
Nevados de Chillan hot springs and ski resort is among the best ski & snowboard areas in Chile. A three and a half hour train trip from Santiago and a two hour transfer from the train station will take you to Nevados de Chillán, we offer the excellent accommodation choices of Gran Hotel Termas de Chillán, Pirimahuida Hotel, Nevados de Chillán Hotel and Mi Lodge Hotel, in Chile this skiing area is also known as Termas de Chillan or Chillan hotsprings.

Also in the Southern Andes Mountains you can visit Pucón and ski the amazing Villarica Volcano with incredible views of Villarica Lake.
While there are no accommodation facilities at the skiing area we recomend to stay at the town of Pucon that is only 25 minutes from the base of the Volcano where you can take the lift. Here we offer the best alternatives at reasonable price. Pucon is considered the center of adventure and outdoor tourism in southern Chile, at only half an hour from Pucon you can choose from a dozen hot springs, trekking, rafting, fly fishing, horse riding and much more.
Accomodations located near the lake at the base of the volcano are recomendable for anyone from honeymooners to families and friends. Plenty of restaurants, shops, pubs all mesh together in this typical chilean town. In winter this town´s livelihood consists mainly of skiing and snowboarding tourism but you will have plenty of other outdoor activities to choose once you get to Pucon, which is also recommendable if you would like to give a night out dancing a chance!
Villarica Volcano is not the best for expert skiers but it is ok, it is recomendable for snowboarders because of it natural half pipes and good freeriding, beauty of nature and magestic views are guaranteed.
