Farellones & El Colorado information

Just 32km from Santiago, these two resorts are close enough together to be considered a single destination. The eating and after-ski scenes are scanty here, so locals tend just to come up for the day.

The cheaper of the two is the village of Farellones , Chile's first ski resort. At about 2500m, it's lower than El Colorado and its handful of runs tend to attract mainly beginner skiers, as well as tubing fans. There's more choice further up the mountain at El Colorado The 22 runs range from beginner to expert and the highest of its 18 lifts takes you 3333m above sea level.
