Hotels in Valle Nevado
Created in 1988, Valle Nevado is the newest ski center in central Chile. Valle Nevado was founded by a team of French entrepreneurs whose inspiration was Les Arcs in France. Throughout its years, Valle has been characterized by being pioneer in the development of ski centers in Chile, seeing it from its beginnings as a place much more integral than as a place where to practice ski and nothing else. This business model allowed them to invest in the construction of a hotel, which generated a faithful and assiduous clientele.
True to its innovative style, Valle Nevado was the first ski center in the region to have a high-speed detachable saddle in 2001, later the first Half Pipe in South America was inaugurated and again they were the first (and the only ones so far) in having a cable car in a ski center in Chile (remember that the cable car is from before).
