El Colorado
 
 

El Colorado is 50 kilometers east of Santiago, accessible by a well maintained paved road. The top lift served elevation is 3333 meters. The base elevation is 2430 meters. Trails are of all ability levels, and the resort has much off piste skiing. Trails connect to Valle Nevado ski area. El Colorado recently installed 2500 meters of snowmaking pipe. This covers three trails on the mid and lower mountains. Snowboarders are welcome.

Several international ski teams train at El Colorado every year. Many ski academies also visit El Colorado's slopes.

El Colorado has two villages, Villa Farellones and Villa Colorado. Farellones is an older, bigger, more traditional ski village. It is also less expensive to stay at one of the inns here than at Colorado. Colorado is a more modern village that has grown quickly over the last few years. It has a hotel and several condo buildings. It is cheaper to stay in Santiago than in either of these villages.
