Discovered in 1932
El Colorado was discovered in 1932 by a team of passionate skiers from Chile who set out to explore the Andes. They came upon the rolling slopes of Cerro Colorado and found a perfect spot for a ski resort here.
They established a mountain village called the Farellones with quaint little cottages inspired by wood-and-stone Swiss chalets.
Attractions and Facilities
EL Colorado has come a long way since then. It now has 112 tracks that traverse from a highest point of over 3,300 metres to the base at 2430 metres above sea level.
The resort is home to an International Ski School as well as a Children’s Mini School. El Mirador, a restaurant at 3000 metres above sea level offers a culinary treat on its mountain terraces. There are also outlets that hire out and sell ski gear as well as accessories.
It doesn’t matter if you ski but a visit to El Colorado is stunningly worthwhile.
