Stretching from the equator in the north all the way down to Lake Titicaca and Chile in the south, Peru is a symbol of the Andes Mountains. Home to Incan sites like Machu Picchu, it is held in high esteem as a go-to destination among splitboarders, skiers, and outdoor athletes.
The lack of ski resorts is beneficial for splitboarders as it combines action-packed ascents with pristine powder descents. The landscape is rugged from foothills to summit, and though about 60% of the land is Peruvian Amazonia, it is still a captivating snow sport location for snow- and splitboarders.
The Altiplano Plateau to the south and the Andes in the east are the primary locations for splitboarding and ski touring.
Rainy season lasts from November to March or April, leaving dry season for May to October. Air flow from the Amazon combines with those off the Pacific Ocean to supply a healthy amount of snow across high-altitude regions.
