This trip runs from August 9 to 17. Join Skican in Vina Del Mar on the ocean, Valle Nevado on the snow, and Santiago on the streetscape (3-part trip) on the first Ski Escape (hosted trip) of the season! 7 nights, 4 ski days with Air included. Limited availability.

Bucket List? No way. Chile is for now.

Let others procrastinate. Join Skican in Vina Del Mar, Valle Nevado, and Santiago (3-part trip) on the first Ski Escape (hosted trip) of the season! You will be in the company of a small group of travelers, who like to get outside and be active. No hassle, all fun.

Start your trip with a view of the ocean and wine exploration in Vina Del Mar (Vineyard by the sea) for 2 days. It overflows with flowers, beaches, seafood, and quirky sites. Viña lets you go at whatever pace, so move as fast or as slow as you want here.

Then move onto our ski home for 4 nights will be Valle Nevado (= snowy valley), a modern ski resort in the El Plomo foothills of the Andes Mountains just 90 minutes from Santiago. It boasts plenty of sunshine, beautiful vistas, and dry snow. Inspired by resorts in the French Alps, Valle Nevado has the most advanced lift system in South America and is a paradise for intermediate skiers and riders. Explore the bumps, backcountry, and terrain park as well. You will rest in the Hotel Valle Nevado or Hotel Puerto de Sol (your choice) with half board and easy access to the slopes and village base amenities - shops, restaurants, and bars. This experience will offer only the best distractions and few decisions - it is summer after all!

A few tips for your ski portion of this adventure:

  • While enjoying the dreamy groomers and off-piste terrain, keep an eye out for the rare Andean Condor soaring high above the treeline
  • At day's end, enjoy tea or pisco sour by the pool and chat with skiers from far-flung places
  • Be sure to witness an infamous pink sunset

The trip will end with 2 nights in Santiago. Join your hosts on a walking tour of the city or ask about wine tours in neighbouring Maipo Valley. Santiago captivates with its assorted panoramas and its versatility. The Chilean capital fills with life for all those that visit.
