There's better skiing here than in Conguillío, with numerous runs, prettier scenery and new infrastructure which includes Valle Corralco Hotel & Spa, the best of Sur Chico's ski-resort lodges. Gear rentals run CH$27,000 for adults and CH$18,000 for kids.

To get here, the turnoff is 2km east of Malalcahuello on the road to Lonquimay.
