At the Base of Lonquimay

Lonquimay is about 600 kilometers south of Santiago, accessible by a well maintained paved road and a dirt access road. It is built atop a volcano that last erupted in 1989. Fortunately the eruption caused no damage to the ski lifts. For the 2003 season, a new operator, Corralco, took over the resort. The resort now features a double chairlfit, a t-bar, and a rope tow.The lift-served vertical is 320 meters. If you hike to the top, the run down is about 1400 vertical meters with some very steep pitches. Although located in the rainy lake district, Lonquimay has a micro-climate. The weather is clear 75% of the ski season.

Lonquimay is open from July to October. Accommodations are available at the Corralco Mountain Refugio. Cheaper accommadations can be found at the nearby villages of Curacautin and Malacahuello.
