Bolivia is located at a very high altitude. Be sure to arrive a few days prior to your splitboarding trip in order to properly acclimatize. It is likely that you will feel headaches after physical exertion, keepy hydrated and drink coca mate as well in order to make the most of your trip.
Splitboarding is not a very popular sport in Bolivia still, so as a result you will need to bring your own equipment as rentals may be very difficult to find. There are places to rent skiing equipment, however.

Up in the mountains, average daily temperatures at this time of year are below freezing. Temperatures rise to between 15ºC and 20ºC farther down in the plains.
Any trip to Bolivia will start with a flight into the El Alto International Airport (LPB) in La Paz. From here you can easily take a bus into the Andes or Cordillera. However, many guides will meet you in a Paz and arrange transport to your final destination.
