Downhillers started qualifying on Sunday morning. They raced a wooded track with many jumps and huge turns. Since Nevado de Chillan is a Ski center, all riders used the chair lift to go uphill, a big help in logistics with lots of time saved relative to some other rounds.

Maurico Acuña and Pamela Moreno won the men's and women's elite races respectively.
