Spanish courses and Ski in Chile 2016

If you have ever dreamt of skiing under the wings of the Andean Condor, we can help you to realize your dream. We offer several options combining our Spanish courses with the possibility of skiing in the ski resorts near Santiago. Our ski season is open from mid June to end of October!

All our Ski ´n´ learn packages except Option A-Ski day-, include US$ 50 discount. This is a 8%-20% on the course fee + enrolment fee depending on the package!

Option A is a single Ski day experience including ski or snowboard classes you can book additionally to your Spanish course program. The options B-D include different Spanish Course alternatives, enrolment fee, the door-to-door transportation from Santiago to the Ski resort and back. The rental of equipment - skis, boots and sticks as lift tickets for the three possible Ski Centers La Parva, Farellones/El Colorado and Valle Nevado, is not included. The options A and B offer the possibility to visit each day a different area.

Spanish Courses and Ski in Chile

The price for a Lift ticket depends on the ski center and costs between US$ 63 - US$ 67 on weekends and during high season for a day. During the week out of the high season US$ 45-60 for full day,  depending on the Ski Center. The additional daily return shuttles from your lodging to the ski centres is US$ 40. More price details click here

For advanced skiers we recommend to take the Interconnection ticket Colorado/ Valle Nevado. For additional US$60/day you can ski from one area to the other, which makes your skiing area larger! Those who take lodging in Farellones and want to ski in Valle Nevado have to take the Interconnection ticket, because of the lack of public transportation from Farellones to Valle Nevado.

We now also offer an all inclusive Package at the Portillo Ski Center, which lies on the international Route to Mendoza next to the border. This internationally famous Resort has a spectacular setting above the Laguna del Inca and is offering now attractive prices for young travellers. The Inca lodge has 4 beds and shared bathrooms and permits the guests to make use of the luxurious Hotel facilities like the pool, the gym and the Jacuzzi. This package does include the transport to Portillo but not the ski equipment rental.
