Day 1 – Travel to Las Trancas
Arrive at Santiago International Airport before 9 am or spend the evening before in Santiago at a hotel of your choice. The CASA guides will arrange Day 1 pickups and then journey south to the powder capital of Chile, Nevados de Chillan. En route the group will stop at the Miguel Torres winery for a 4 course lunch and wine pairing before continuing to the ski pueblo of Las Trancas. We spend 4 nights in this magical forested valley, where huge storms are known to settle in!

Days 2-4 – Ski/Ride Nevados de Chillan
For the next 3 full days you will explore one of Chile’s most epic ski resorts, Nevados de Chillan. Chillan is a relatively ‘undiscovered’ snow paradise offering big descents, a lunar-like landscape with many ski touring opportunities, and some of the most consistent snow in the Andes. All types of terrain are on offer, from long groomed slopes and the gentle ‘Tres Marias’ lava tubes to adventurous steeps in the Pirigallo Valley and steaming summits of the Chillan volcanoes satisfies a wide variety of adventure appetites. The evenings are spent celebrating in true Chilean hospitality with a variety of locally owned restaurants in one of the most authentic ski villages in Chile, Las Trancas.

Day 5 – Travel to Malacahuello
After lunch and visiting the extraordinary Chillan market, one of the country’s largest farmers markets, you'll continue further south into Chile’s volcanic ring of fire to the quaint village of Malacahuello. Located at the base of Volcan Lonquimay and amongst stands of ancient Araucaria trees is Corralco Mountain Resort. Offering wide-open volcanic slopes and plenty of touring opportunities the group will spend 3 days enjoying this off the beaten track Chilean gem.  Days on the mountain are complimented by enjoying hot springs soaks and more authentic Chilean hospitality in Malacahuello.

Days 6-8 - Ski/Ride Corralco – Volcan Lonquimay
Situated on Volcan Lonquimay, Corralco is an expansive mountain playground. The newly installed Cumbre lift accesses 3,000 foot/ 1,000 metre descents and wide open volcanic bowls. With stunning views of the surrounding volcanoes of Llaima, Villarrica, and Lanin, Corralco lies deep in the belly of Chile’s Ring of Fire. Surrounded by Conquillo National Park and its famous monkey puzzle forests, Corralco offers the sublime beauty of these ancient native groves of Chile’s national tree with the massive volcanic landscape of Volcan Lonquimay. With the addition of the new lift infrastructure and excellent spring time corn harvesting, Corralco is the perfect destination for the “Endless Winter.”
