Valle Nevado’s terrain is all above treeline, and there’s lots of it. Combined with neighboring La Parva and El Colorado (available as a joint lift ticket), the skiable terrain boasts more acreage than Vail. From Hotel Puerta del Sol, ski down to the Mirador chair. From the top, access advanced terrain off the backside, or cruise mellow groomers on the front. Or, for a different experience, Valle Nevado offers heli skiing by the day or by the run. Ski 5,000 vertical feet per run in the terrain surrounding Valle Nevado, while 18,000 foot peaks tower nearby. Bonus: the helicopter will even drop you back off on-piste.
