Nevados of Chillan: A Snowboarding Paradise

Hiking and Trekking National Parks
When asked where to snowboard in the summer, we usually point them to The Nevados de Chillán resort area, located 5 hours south of Santiago via train or car or via a short flight to Concepcion. It is well worth the journey from the northern resorts. If you are going to snowboard Chile, you cannot miss Nevados. The historic Valle las Trancas used to be a (literally) guarded-by-gate outlaw’s haven. There used to be only a clandestine casino on the flanks of the active volcano; a volcano that just happened to have amazing, light and dry powder and fun tree riding.

 Nevados of Chillan: A Snowboarding Paradise

Nevados de Chillán and the Las Trancas valley has since evolved into an adventure tourist’s paradise. With lifts taking you right up to the base of the volcanos, some people say it is like snow surfing on the moon.
Epic views, natural lava-tube halfpipes, buffed out wind lips, and splitboard touring options for days. You can get even get some urban snowboarding in as the hotel is quite liberal when it comes to using their hotel for rails, etc. Rider Elias Elhardt showing how it’s done.
