Description

Let me organize your 3-day heliskiing adventure in the incredible Uco Valley of Argentina!  This all-inclusive trip includes accommodation and food in our luxurious lodge so that you can spend even more time enjoying the breathtaking mountains!

Located in the famous Mendoza province, the region that is also home to Argentina’s top vineyards, the towering peaks of the Andes in the Uco Valley are the perfect setting for an incredible heliski adventure.  You will have a rare opportunity to ski pristine lines with some of the most impressive mountains of the world as your backdrop.  The varied terrain of the region will suit all ability levels and interests, regardless of whether you want to challenge yourself on tough steep ridges, or want a relaxing ride through fluffy powder.

This short 3-day package is designed with enthusiastic skiiers in mind who don’t have the time to ski for a full week.  To simplify your logistics even further, this all-inclusive package includes 4-nights accommodation and all meals: breakfasts, picnic lunches, and dinners (excluding alcohol). You will spend 3 of those nights at the luxurious Vines Lodge, one of the top properties in the area, so that you will rest after the day’s adventures in world class comfort. Additionally, the price includes 10 hour of heli time (extra time can be purchased at an additional cost), experienced guides who know the best lines based on current conditions, ski rentals, safety equipment, and ground transportation, including pickup at the airport and drop-off after the last day on the mountain to either the hotel or your airport.

Book now to experience some of the best Argentina has to offer: you will enjoy untouched lines and fresh powder of the Andean backcountry all while returning to our luxury lodge at the end of each day!
