More Info

Stretching more than 4,300 kilometers down the west coast of South America, Chile offers plenty of backcountry skiing opportunities. In the winter, more than half of the country’s mountain range (which runs through the whole country) is completely covered in snow and in the perfect skiing conditions.

Outside of the aforementioned hotspots, Punta Arenas, in Tierra del Fuego, is another spot that offers incredible scenery and backcountry skiing conditions for an even longer season. Enjoy a couple extra months in the autumn and spring to ski and explore the various fjords and mountains at the bottom of the world.

A bit farther north, around Torres del Paine National Park, there are also plenty of excellent and remote backcountry skiing spots. Access to ski areas in Argentina is also quite easy, making the spot a great starting point for a cross-border adventure.

Nico was an incredible guide. I wanted to ski the canaletas in Cerro Arenas and he was excited to take me there. He knows Cajon del Maipo like the back of his hand. Afterall, this is his backyard. He has spent decades skiing, climbing and exploring this region and his knowledge of the terrain and weather is very impressive. His english is good as well, and he is a really nice guy on top of all that. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great ski mountaineering adventure.
