Description

At just 36 km away from Santiago de Chile is Farellones, a stunning area for winter sports lovers. Join me on this splitboarding adventure to explore this fabulous Andean spot!

Farellones stands at an altitude of 2,340m. (7,874 ft). It is conveniently located in the commune of Lo Barnechea, just an hour or two from Santiago. The charming village, with characteristic wood houses and a small ski resort, has wide open slopes and many off-piste options. 

Additionally, Farellones is very close to other winter sports areas such as Valle Nevado, La Parva and El Colorado. Therefore, during our outing we can also splitboard in these 3 amazing spots!  Valle Nevado is Chile’s largest ski resort, and has probably the best powder snow in the region. La Parva offers easy access to off the beaten splitboarding areas. We can also reach El Colorado using the La Parva or Valle Nevado ski lifts. The east face of this mountain accumulates large amounts of snow and is great for splitboarding.

So, if you want to splitboard in Farellones and its surroundings, please contact me! I’ll be glad to guide you through the beautiful slopes of the Chilean Andes!

I also offer a splitboarding trip in the popular volcanoes of Chile: check it out!

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Chile

I was born in 1990, and I always been surrounded by mountains, with family and friends in the Andes.

I did the first Chilean ascent to Cerro Torre via Ferrari route, four ascents to Mt, Fitz Roy, more than 12 to Torres del Paine and the first alpine traverse of the three towers.

I also climbed in the Himalayas, Yosemite, and other Andean countries such as Argentina, Bolivia and Peru.

I did the IFMGA/UIAGM aspirant course in 2017 in Bolivia, and completed the AIARE level 2 avalanche training.

I work together with my brother Juan (we are the Señoret Brothers). Contact me if you want to discover the most beautiful mountain spots in Chile!

What people are saying about Cristobal

Cristobel was a very knowledgeable guide and he provided a good level of encouragement to push me through hard sections of climbing rather than letting me give up. Unfortunately, my original guide for two days of climbing was unable to make it and so I was rebooked for 1 day of climbing with Cristobel. What was upsetting about this was that it was more expensive to complete 1 day of climbing compared to the two days I was originally booked in for. I ended up having to pay more money for half the climbing. I think Explore-Share could improve by having a more consistent price structure for the guides, or at least being clear about why one guide is more expensive.

Great guide. Picked a well-rounded spot for a new group, with numerous options. Understanding of our lack of time at altitude. Great guy.

Excellent day at Portillo with Cristobal. He gave us several options in a planning session the night before. He also communicated well on the day of about current conditions and what we were seeing. We ended up doing a secondary objective due to what we saw in the field.
