Description

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.
