Chapa Verde

With a name meaning 'Green Grass' in Spanish, and being formerly a private ski club for the managers of the local copper mine (one of the world's largest) Chapa Verde may not initially appeal to die hard skiers. They'd be wise to look further however, as the centre offers classic expert off-piste ski terrain as well as trails for all standards, and spectacular views across the Andes. The resort installed a new triple chair and went public in the early '90s. It now exciting development plans, separated off from the mine.


The Chilean ski resort of Chapa Verde is in the Chilean Andes at an altitude of 2,370m7,776ft.

Chapa Verde has direct access to 14 marked pistes, served by a total of 4 ski lifts.

The ski resort itself is at 2,370m7,776ft, so skiing or boarding back to the resort is usually possible. With ski lifts as high as 2,871m9,419ft, skiing and snowboarding is assured throughout the season.
