Description

Skiing in the mountains is an exhilarating activity. From the views to the feeling of racing down wild slopes high up in the peaks, there really isn’t anything like it. However, like most outdoor activities in mountainous environments, it is important to know what you are doing. As a result, I am happy to offer this 2-day ski touring course in the gorgeous Valle Las Arenas, in the Cajon de Maipo of Chile, near the city of Santiago.

When it comes to skiing in the mountains, safety is paramount. There are a lot of risks involved as the mountains are a terrain that cannot be tamed. Hence, we will be heavily focused on safety during this course. Some examples of what we will cover during the course includes the following.

  • Introduction to mountain skiing
  • Equipment usage
  • Evaluating different types of snow
  • Itinerary planning
  • Recognition of avalanches
  • Ascend in moderate slope
  • How to descend with skins and in virgin snow

In order to participate on this trip course, you should be able to ski at a basic level. You should also be in good physical condition.

There really isn’t anything quite like skiing in the mountains. And, my hope is that after this course in the Valle Las Arenas you will have the tools necessary to enjoy future expeditions both safely and successfully. To join me on this trip, please send a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I also offer a 4-day rock climbing course in the Andes of Chile, near Santiago, which you can enjoy here.

About the guide

guide profile img

For more than 20 years I have worked as a guide in Chile. Join me and I´ll be able to show you the wonderful spots that the Andes offer to those who share my passion for big mountains.

I live in Santiago de Chile, the Chilean capital, where there are many options for high altitude ascents, even over 6,000 meters, in close proximity to the city. I also regularly organize trips to the Chilean Altiplano, where there are many mountains over 6000 meters. However, the main attraction of these trips is to witness the intensity and loneliness of the Atacama Desert.

I would love to have the opportunity to share these magical moments with you and help you achieve your goals and dreams.
