FAQs: Heliskiing and Catskiing in Argentina

What should I know about Heliskiing and Catskiing Argentina?

Argentina covers a vast expanse of diverse terrain, from desert and mountain to coast and ice field. It is known for its glaciers, a feature visited often by heliskiers who head to this southern hub.

Why should I choose Argentina for my Heliskiing and Catskiing adventure?

Remote Beauty!

The Andes and Patagonia have long been a popular destination to visit, even for skiers. With heliskiing, you get to see a whole new side of this impressive range, traveling to its most wild and woolly parts unknown for unforgettable ski runs. The thrilling lines include untouched snow in tree-lined runs, steep ridges, and gentle glades of varying degrees, and that's just the beginning. From peak to foothills, there is an entire world of great terrain just waiting to be skied. The only things missing are the crowds!

Uco Valley!

The Mendoza Province may be most famous for its wine, but the heliskiing there is arguably more delicious. The tallest peaks of the Andes call this region home, including Aconcagua (6,961m), making sky high objectives available to the most daring athletes. Accommodating lodges are hidden among the mountains to whisk you away to the deepest snow in the country.

Full Service Charm!

Many heliskiing programs boast full accommodation packages, which can include a wide array of activities and indulgences. You can immerse yourself in the Andes for weeks at a time, taking adrenaline-pumping heli-drops by day and relaxing in style by night. Lodges can offer gourmet meals, full service spas, and everything your heart might desire. Just because heliskiing in Argentina puts you into high quality remote snow doesn't mean you have to give up modern luxuries and amenities. There is something for everyone when heading into Argentina!
