Part of the Tres Vallies complex of resorts, Colorado can be skied in combination with La Parva or Valle Nevado. Catering to Chilean locals, it’s also a worthy destination for budget conscious skiers who can book accommodations at either El Colorado’s base area or shack up in Farellones, Chile’s original ski town. Farellones has a selection of funky hostels and hotels and exudes character. It’s also adjacent to El Colorado’s lift system, giving easy access to the slopes to guests who choose this option. Terrain inside the ropes at El Colorado can feel limited, although the cone-shaped mountain that the resort is built on does hold some secrets. Experts will want to sample the road laps down to Valle Nevado’s access road, but be advised, this area holds both snow and severe avalanche danger. Bring appropriate safety equipment.
