An excellent skiing resort placed high in the beautiful Andes. Staff were very friendly, helpful and spoke English to those who need it. They run beginner group classes (which are delivered in multiple languages which can slow the pace down - it is literally for...More

Beautiful but scary drive up windy road. Barely 1 lane in each direction. Often without guard rails. Some curves were only 5mph & blind. Had to let 1 vehicle pass from opposing traffic. Only confident drivers should try. Nice views from resort & restaurants were...More

La Parva turns out to be our favorite from the three resorts. El Colorado does not offer much for food and the lifts are slow and old. El Nevada is too commercial for us. La Parva was just perfect with a good variety of terrain....More

I think this resort is underrated due to the few people I saw on the slopes when I went. It's rather surprising considering the quality of its slopes and lifts. Great views of the Andes Mountains and parts of Santiago from above. There are plenty...More

Not as steep as I'd expect right off the lift/poma service. There is some steep stuff you can hike to all over. There are no hotels here and parking seems to be a bit of a nightmare- I think it's how they try to keep...More

I thought the terrain was a bit more varied that Valle Nevado. The one minor drawback is that the parking and the access from parking to the lifts is less than ideal. The scenery is pretty amazing, and you can actually see Santiago from the...More

The prices are not cheap, actually they're pretty expensive, so because of that you would expect at least good service, and that was not the case. They have a few really rude and unprofessional staff there, two female instructors were screaming at us when we're...More

La Parva is a great ski resort especially if you are travelling with people with differing levels of skill and experience, the terrain is so varied and you can easily take runs side by side with significant difference in difficulty due to the ridge lines....More

If you have never experienced skiing in July, this destination is a recommendable one, slightly overpriced and overcrowded compared to Europe.
