La Parva at a glance

Built by Europeans, commercialised by Americans, and run by locals since 1989, includes Chile's first quad chair lift. It's the most northerly of the areas near to Santiago and the base for most of the great and the good (and the rich) of Santiago who have second homes here, leaving it very quiet in the week. This was once Chile's highest resort.
