"Termas de Chillán: ski resort and wild mountain" Nevados de Chillán by Glospi

Nevados de Chillán Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 11 photos

Hot springs, ski and wilderness altogether

The Termas (hot springs) de Chillán are located 85 kilometres east of Chillán town , which is 400 kilometres south of Santiago.
The Termas are a world-class top ski resort, home to many Olympic sky teams from America and Europe, and attracting every winter season, a crowd of ski and snowboard enthusiasts, many of them coming -quite curiously for some- from sunny Brazil.
But not only winter sports are an attraction here: mountaineering is nice and done all year round, and some of us mix it with randonee skiing to make downhill tracks a harrowing experience.

There are a couple of basic shelters in the area, plus another dilapidated one in the area called Shangri-la, at the lower end of the lava fields.
