More Info

Located on the Pacific Coast of South America, Peru extends south from the equator and its borders with Ecuador and Colombia to its borders with Chile and Bolivia. It shares an eastern border with Brazil. Peru has a wide variety of landscapes, from the coast to the mountains. Roughly 60% of the country is Peruvian Amazonia.

The mountains of Peru do not have ski resorts or developed ski areas, but for those who are capable and willing, the glaciated terrain and craggy outcropping of the high-altitude peaks are up for grabs to freeride skiers and ski mountaineers.

The Altiplano Plateau and Andes are the most noteworthy places for skiing expeditions. The tallest mountain in Peru, Huascaran (6,768m) is in the Cordillera Blanca.
