Jul, Aug, Sep
We’ll meet at Santiago de Chile and drive to the helicopter airport that will take us to El Morado. Briefing session and safety instructions.
The first day will be spent in a not so high route to get used to the altitude and thin air. We’ll go gaining altitude as the days progress, looking for new and untouched places. There’s also the option to rest for a day.
One last day skiing and we’ll return to Santiago to the 5-star Ritz Carlton.
