Nevados de Chillan


Nevados de Chillan (former Termas de Chillan) offers you the opportunity to be at a ski resort in Chile in the middle of truly unique and amazing natural surroundings. The natural reserve of Bío Bío is dominated by the Chillan volcano, with hot springs, thermal baths, forests and snowed-capped mountains.


The beauty and advantage of Nevados de Chillan is that there are lots of things to do outdoors than just skiing.


You can go snowshoeing, dog sledding, snowmobiling + cross country skiing. Nevados de Chillan base offers a variety of accommodation from luxury hotels to Condos.


The ski resort is 6 hours from Santiago, 2.5 hours from the city of Concepcion (which has an airport), 1 hour from the city of Chillan, and 15 minutes from the neighboring small town of Las Trancas.


The top hotels are the Gran Hotel Termas (which is one of the best hotels in all of Chile) and Hotel Nevados de Chillan, there are also a variety of condominiums options.

All budget and backpacker options such as cabins and hostels are located in Las Trancas.


While there is still good skiing and steeper runs + more bowls than the Argentina Patagonia resorts, we find it important to mention that the snow at Termas de Chillan is a lot less reliable than in the Northern Andes resorts, but more reliable than more southern Chilean and Argentine resorts.


Sometimes the resort has warmer temperatures and more rainfall than Portillo, Las Lenas and Valle Nevado. Sometimes you must download for part of the season from the top and cannot ski to the base. However, in weak snow years, strangely enough Nevados de Chillan usually gets the most snow of all resorts.

Magali Roy - Mark Lasseter


Nevados de Chillan has surface lifts like t-bars and pomas in the high alpine so easier to access during windy periods and after big storms than other resorts like Las Lenas and Portillo.

We recommend a trip here for any skier, snowboarder or family that enjoys skiing and want a truly different resort and love the outdoors and nature. There is however not huge nightlife at the resort like Las Lenas and Bariloche. We recommend going to Snow pub in Las Trancas for nightlife.
