For lofty adventures, head to the highest ski resort in the world at Chacaltaya Resort in Bolivia. It is the country's only ski resort and is built on top of a glacier. Bolivia is the highest and most rugged nation on earth and with an elevation of over 17, 000 ft, Chacaltaya has stunning views of the surrounding mountains and of the famous Lake Titicaca. This is definitely a resort that is set apart from the rest and is a totally different experience from the usual high speed runs found the world over. As well as its high-rise credentials, Chacaltaya is the only ski area in the southern hemisphere that has a season corresponding with resorts in the Northern hemisphere. It is also the closest skiing area in the world to the equator.
