Ski country is beautiful, no matter where you find it.

Here are our top favorite jaw-dropping and inspiring views perfect for your Instagram feed from Chile (specifically Ski Portillo and Valle Nevado).

1. Top of the Super C Couloir at Ski Portillo

Portillo is know for many things: powder that lasts for days, a sunshine yellow lodge and slingshot lifts.

However, not all of the terrain at Ski Portillo is lift served. If you’re up for earning your turns, and you’ve got expert skills, this view from the top of the Andes down into the depths of Laguna del Inca might be one of the prettiest sights you’ll ever see.

It’s at least a two-hour climb, but the payoff is huge: almost 5,000 vertical feet of pristine powder.

3. Extreme Synchronicity at Ski Portillo, Bosse Landberger, @bosselandberger

On an average day at Portillo, you’ll find about one skier per skiable acre which equals plenty of room to rip. This photo features U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Famer John Clendenin and a friend making perfect synchronized turns enjoying the wide open snow.
