Chacaltaya Ski Resort

Chacaltaya, commonly referred to as the “highest ski resort in the world,” is located a short distance from La Paz. For those of you in search of fresh powder, don’t get your hopes up just yet as the slope is no longer skiable due to the receding glacier (6-10m a year). However, at 5,300m, Chacaltaya boasts some of the most stunning views of the Cordillera Real, the city of La Paz and the seemingly endless altiplano. The best part is that you only have to ascend 200m by foot to reach the summit.
