Description

Join me for an incredible opportunity heliskiing the impressive Chilean Andes. On this 6-day trip in Maipo Valley, we’ll discover Chile’s best powder snow and relax at the cozy El Morado Lodge & Spa. Come with me for this exciting adventure.

Located in the heart of the Chilean Andes, the Maipo Valley is known for offering Chile’s best powder snow and beautiful views during the rides. Huge glaciers surround the area and many places have not been riden yet! We’ll spend 13 hours flying through this beauty!

In order to enjoy the place even more, we’ll be staying at the gorgeous El Morado Lodge & Spa. With cozy rooms, exquisite cuisine and impressive views, this place is the best place to stay for this adventure. It is even the closest hotel to the best terrain, increasing skiing time! It is also completely energy efficient with 100% solar energy.

I can’t wait to take you to this incredible spot. If you are ready to experience Chile’s best, send your request. The mountains are waiting for you!

Day 1: Santiago - El Morado Lodge & Spa

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.
