Real Estate Development
A MOUNTAIN VILLAGE IN THE ANDES
Beginning in 2010, Valle Nevado launches its grand Master Development Plan, which will eventually create a mountain village at the resort’s base that will include condominiums and shops.
The development project began with the installation of a new parking lot for day visitors to Valle Nevado with space for 350 vehicles at Curve 17, which is located below the entrance to the resort’s hotel complex. In 2011, Valle Nevado added a ticket booth, ski school booth, restaurant, shops and ski rental to this new service area, as well as beginning the construction of South America’s first gondola, which would eventually take day visitors straight up to the Bajo Zero restaurant mid-mountain.
According to the Master Plan, by 2022 Valle Nevado will feature a total of 19 condominiums spread around approximately 262,465 square feet of land. The first two new condominiums, Condor I and II, have been a complete success, and the buildings form the pillar of what will eventually develop into a true mountain village high in the Andes.
New lifts and runs will allow the resort to expand more than 330 hectares, further establishing Valle Nevado as offering the largest skiable domain in South America.
To date Valle Nevado has renovated its Events Center, opened an elegant new bar in the Hotel Valle Nevado, made further improvements and expansions in the Ski School and Terrain Park, installed new facilities at the Curve 17 Service Area, added new trails and Magic Carpet lifts, and completed the first gondola chairlift of the region to be inaugurated this year. Other new features include new shops, the addition of Burton’s Learn to Ride program to the mountain and the ongoing construction of new lodging options.
