Description

Experience the incredible adventure of heliskiing on the Andes in this amazing 3-day trip in Maipo Valley, Chile. With incredible powder snow and huge glaciers, this place is ideal for winter-sport lovers. Join me on this exciting opportunity!

We’ll meet at Santiago de Chile and move to the beautiful El Morado Lodge. These three days will be filled with adventures! We’ll enjoy 9 hours of flying time and discover the best powder terrain Chile has to offer. At the same time, we’ll get to savour the amazing Andes landscape.

For this trip, we’ll be staying at the luxurious El Morado Lodge & Spa. This cozy hotel in the heart of the Chilean Andes offers beautiful rooms and the perfect relaxing environment after an exciting day at the slopes. Besides, it is the closest lodge to the best terrain, reducing flying time and maximizing skiing time. I am also happy to report that it is energy efficient with 100% solar energy.

This trip is recommended for intermediate skiers, but I can also help you find easier terrains to match your skills, if necessary. My goal is to provide you with an unforgettable experience.

If you are ready for it, send your request! I would love to be your guide.

I also offer a longer trip with the same amenities. Check it out here.
