Corralco is a typically shaped volcano found in the South of Chile, a few hours north of the better-known Pucon. The terrain here is wide open and unbelievably consistent. In 2015 Corralco was the first ski resort in Chile to open, potentially giving them the claim of the longest season in South America.
