The 34 groomed runs of Valle Nevado are distributed into 120 hectares out of the 9,000 hectares of skiable surface. Laid pursuant to the level of difficulty, 4 of them are for beginners, 10 for the intermediate level, 14 for advanced skiers and there are runs for experts.
Its 810-meter vertical drop sets the highest skiable point on top of Mount Tres Puntas, 3,670 meters high, and the lowest at 2,860 meters.
The infrastructure of Valle Nevado is completed with 11 lifts, with cable ferries that interconnect the ski resorts, and a Bell 407 helicopter to practice heli-skiing in unexplored areas of the Andes.
The most challenging may practice heli-skiing and reach 4,200-meter heights in the company of a guide, and slide on unexplored valleys, with the possibility of skiing up to 2,500-meter vertical drop.
If snowfalls are scarce, the resort is equipped with 19 snow guns, which can cover 6 kilometers of runs, thus guaranteeing the practice of skiing on 30% of the surface.
