Thanks in advance.

I am planning to travel to Chile for Skiing, I have no practice at all so I do need a place when I can start to learn some.

Where are good and cheap places to start Skiing in Chile ?

Are there transportation from Santiago to those Skiing places ?

Hi there

I know, you asked for Chile, but Argentina is close by and I happen to know it, maybe you´re interested:

Catedral mountain near (10km) San Carlos de Bariloche (150.000 habitants + intl airport) is the biggest resort in Argentina (and South America too). Website www.catedralaltapatagonia.com.ar is not very informative (yet) but gives a general idea.

Other good spots are Chapelco near San Martin de los Andes, Las Leñas, La Hoya near Esquel. Most of the towns near these resorts are not very big, so it´s more difficult to get there.

Bariloche has intl. flights from Santiago/Chile, tend to book out in ski-season because a lot of Chileans prefer Argentina (it´s cheaper)

Hope this helped a little.
