    Join me for an incredible 3-day trip on the beautiful Maipo Valley, Chile. This Andes location is ideal for exploring snowboarding and skiing at its best! We’ll spend 3 days heliboarding Chile’s best powder snow. Come experience this exciting adventure.

    We’ll meet at Santiago de Chile and ride in a helicopter to El Morado Lodge & Spa, the luxurious hotel where we’ll be staying. We’ll spend the following days making the most of this experience with 9 hours of flying time. We’ll slowly go gaining altitude and searching for the best places! We’ll also spend the last night at the 5-star Ritz Carlton hotel in Santiago de Chile.

    The wonderful El Morado is ideal for this type of trip: it is the closest lodge to the best terrain, giving us more time for enjoying the snow. Besides, the cozy rooms and excellent Chilean cuisine are fantastic for coming back from the mountain ready to relax.

    This trip is recommended for intermediate snowboarders, but skiers are welcome too! I can also accommodate other sill levels looking for the best terrain to match your skills.

    So book your trip now and get ready for an unforgettable experience on the Chilean Andes! Maipo Valley is waiting for you.

    If you are looking for a longer trip, be sure to check out the one I offer to Maipo Valley but as a 6-day trip.

    What People are Saying about Rodrigo Mujica


    From the start Aventuras Patagonicas was welcoming, which set the trip up on the right foot. The guides, Wes, Lucia and Sebastian were all excellent and worked very hard to get the group of climbers safely up and down the mountain. The food was excellent and well organized. The gear provided on the mountain (tents) were also of good quality. I would climb again with Patagonicas.

    Great guides, great equipment, amazed about how good food was. All round a very experienced and top end operator who know what they are doing and will maximise your chances of getting to the summit. Reaching top Aconcagua was one of greatest highlights of my life thank you Aventuras Patagonicas.

    I did a 20 day climb of Aconcagua with this company. The guides were excellent and made the trip as enjoyable as possible. We had hot meals every evening and morning. Aconcagua is a hard mountain and it takes a great deal of effort to reach the top. The guides at Patagonicas are committed to each client\'s safety on the mountain. I would recommend them over any other company on the mountain.
