Chile's premier mountain resort
That's a matter of opinion. Not mine.

With questionable lift placement my first reaction was, "Never have I seen so little made from so much." A new lift is going in this year that will extend lift access down a bit, though I suspect not as much as needed to put a lot of interesting terrain coming from El Colorado into play without a car shuttle.
Valle Nevado is fairly aggressive and flexible in pushing lift/lodging packages, so I suspect the actual $ to be gained by the MVP may not be so much.
After my 2007 trip I wrote a feature on the ski areas accessible from Santiago:

Your opinion may vary. Skibum4ever and spouse were at Valle Nevado in a different season and liked it much more than I did.
