Piste Plan for Corralco
Corralco is a new ski resort on the slopes of Volcan Lonquimay about seven hours drive south from Santiago, the capital of Chile. There are only three lifts on the lower slopes of this conical shaped mountain. The pistes are wide open, but unless snow cover is good it can be hard to utilise all the terrain due to sharp lava under the snow! The resort lies between 1500 and 2200m above sea level.
