Colorado-based Mountain Capital Partners to buy Chile’s La Parva and Unite it with Nearby Valle Nevado Forming Largest Resort in Southern Hemisphere


DURANGO, CO – Colorado-based Mountain Capital Partners is preparing to purchase Chilean resort La Parva and unite it with Valle Nevado, already pwned by MCP. The union of the two areas will create the largest ski resort in the entire Southern Hemisphere.  MCP purchased Valle Nevado last year. It was the company’s first international resort and managing partner, James Coleman said it was the beginning of a lifelong dream to develop a skiing experience of global proportions.

“Valle Nevado and La Parva represent some of the best ski resort brands in South America,” Coleman said in a company press release. “Together, with these two world-class resorts, we are committed to creating the largest and best lift-served resort in the world.”

Both mountains are in the Chilean Andes Mountains, less than an hour from the Chilean capital of Santiago. La Parva offers 14 lifts, 40 named trails and over 3,000 feet of vertical drop, with access to over 200,000 acres of heli-skiing, while Valle Nevado offers over 2,200 skiable acres, another 3,000+ feet of vertical with 16 lifts and 44 trails. This union will give guests access to two of the Southern Hemisphere’s most sought after destination resorts deep within the world’s longest continental mountain range and the highest mountain chain outside of the Himalayas.

From the press release:

“Valle Nevado and La Parva share borders and guests can ski both resorts with an easy-to-access interconnect system of lifts and trails. While shared day and season products are still being developed (including La Parva access on the collective’s season pass product, the Power Pass), Coleman said that beginning winter 2024, guests visiting the Chilean resorts will be able to enjoy a combined total of nearly 5,000 skiable acres, 30 lifts, 84 named trails and a maximum elevation of 12,041 feet with a total vertical of 3,281 feet from the base of La Parva to the summit of Valle Nevado. “
