    Would that time frame of January be to hot in most of peru, argentina, and bolivia? Knowing that most of you are in Chili, its a stretch to ask seeing as how google only can do so much.

    I'll be in Chile for about 2 weeks from February 6th 2014. I'll spend a few days around Santiago and probably head up to San Pedro de Atacama. I would love to go riding in both locations if anyone will be around.

    Send me a PM or reply to this thread if you make it out to the coast at Viņa del Mar/Valparaiso, an hour and a half from Santiago. It is less hot and the air is cleaner than Santiago, and you can drink your post ride beer on the beach.

    Chile is in the eye of the Enduro World Series (EWS) , for one reason this worldwide series stops here , because Chile has it all for MTB, Jared Graves, Jermoe Clementz, Richi Rude, etc. :

    I'm traveling to Santiago in october and would like to know how is the riding there, will there be snow on La Parva? it seems the bike park opens only on december.
    Also, are there good rental bikes in Santiago?
    I Live in Sao Paulo, Brasil, and ride a SC nomad.
    Have not found many info on the net, but would like to try a trip to Chillan.

    The snow in La Parva , Colarorado, Farellones (central Chile) lasts at most to September 15 , after that its spring and melts , and the lifts close after Sept. 15. Bike parks opens late Dcember thru end of March.

    Chillan bike park is at NEVADOS DE CHILLAN

    great thread jpvm
    i've always wanted to visit chile.
    now even more.
    lots of good information here.
    some areas look like western canada , some look like arizona.
    a friend met a girl from chile while on vacation in cuba. he's been down a couple of times to visit and loved it (was lucky enough to watch the urban downhill)
    now the girl is moving up here to canada to live with him.

    Stating nationality or ethnicity is NOT ok when talking about a crime unless it's pertinent to the discussion. This is especially sensitive now because antisemitism is on the rise. Please remove the ethnicity reference.
