Chile is another hotspot along the west coast of the Americas for surf and snow lovers.

Valle Nevados is the most well-known ski resort in Chile with 7,000 acres of skiable terrain at well over 9,300ft above sea level.

Wondering why those buildings look so familiar in the picture below? Because the whole resort was built in 1987 and modelled on Les Arcs.

Since it opened, Valle Nevado has grown to become the best resort in South America, thanks to the development of restaurants, bars, a spa and a brand new cable car!

Valle Nevado just a four hour drive from the uncrowded beach of Ritoque and plenty of surf breaks along the coastline.

Ritoque is spectacularly beautiful just to visit for the day, while Punta de Lobos is known for enticing the more experienced surfers with its 6m waves.
