Don’t be fooled by the warmer weather in Santiago. There is still plenty of snow up in the Andes and the ski centers are still open!!
What’s going on this weekend?
If you have Entel, you definitely need to take advantage of a deal that is going on in El Colorado. Right now there is a 60% off day lift tickets for the rest of the season and you can go up any day! For adults that will leave you at $19.900CLP and kids at $16.9000 per ticket.
If you’re headed up to El Colorado this weekend, be sure to take some time and check out the 4th annual Rey del Park competition. The competition starts on Friday, August 17th at 3 pm and ends Saturday, August 18th at 5 pm. You’ll watch more than 60 freestyle competitors from all over the world who will show off their skills and a shot to be called king of the mountain.
Everyone will try to beat current “king” Iñaqui Irrarázabal, in the snowboard category and Antonia Yañez, who dazzled with a straight air with double shifty. For those who don’t get the snow lingo, that’s a double twist in the air. Each participant will have 5 opportunities to knock down obstacles such as drawers, tunnels, walls, and buses. Most of the competition will be once the sun sets so everyone will have a chance to enjoy the slopes during the day and then live the experience of competing under the stars. Make sure you don’t miss the Big Air competition on Saturday where competitors will jump 12-17 meters and show off their skills. Save the image below to see the schedule of everything related to the competition.
