I want to do a summer trip to chile 2008

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm going to plan and save over the next year to make this trip possible. I don't have any experience out here or anywhere for skiing except the Canadian rookies were I live.

If anyone has headed out there in the past couple of years mabey you could share some insight? Good resorts to stay at, places and things to see and do.

So far ive looked a bit into the La Parva interconnected with Valle Nevado, and also Termas de Chillan.

Again any insight will be graciously appreciated.

Anybody! Also if any other people are considering a solo trip in august we could plan to travel / room together, supposedly its a lot cheaper based on double occupancy.

My September 2007 reports and pics from Portillo, Arpa snowcat and Valle Nevado group here: http://www.firsttracksonline.com/boa...wforum.php?f=6 . Another detailed report in the same time frame from Patrick is in progress. We skied together 3 of my 7 days.

"Seriously, use the search function. Both here and TGR..."



honestly i've noticed a propensity for newer posters to toss up a thread and if it doesn't get hit within 12 hours they start fretting and bumping and wondering why nobody is showing them love. what happend to the whole "patience is a virtue" generation? too many kids raised on Nestle Quik!

But seriously...a person who should chime in (and also you should search) is Brkln. She's been to So. America at least 2X to ski and she's also a sweet photographer. I believe she posted a sweet, sweet, sweet TR over on TGR after she spent a fair amount of time in So. Am skiing both Chile and Argentina.

I've been to Valle Nevado, El Colorado, La Parva and Portillo in Chile. Las Lenas and Bariloche in Argentina. All nice places, but different in character. I've heard good things about Termas, but haven't visited.

What kind of skier or rider are you? What is your budget? How long do you have to spend in SA?

Talked to a guy the other day who had been to Valle Nevado this fall.
Airfare from Seattle, food, lodging, and skiing for 10 days--$3K.
See your travel agent for details.
