Join Nicolas, a local IFMGA-certified mountain guide, for a fun and exciting 1+ day of backcountry ski touring through the stunning scenery around Central Chile.
Enjoy the stunning scenery of Central Chiles' Andes mountains.
Take advantage of excellent powder throughout the ski season.
Escape from the crowded resorts and get some scenic slopes all to yourself.
The mountains and valleys surrounding the Santiago Basin of Central Chile are the ideal spot for a backcountry skiing adventure!
Over the course of our one or more days together, we can explore any of La Parva, Termas de Chillán, Portillo, Valle Nevado and Farellones, among other spots. We will even have the opportunity to stay overnight at a mountain hut in Valle Las Arenas.
There is nothing quite like heading out into the backcountry to enjoy the sublime views of Central Chile. Each of these areas will give us the option to see some different scenery and make some great runs too.
All of these areas have high-quality powder, and there are plenty of itineraries for backcountry skiers of every level. Choose the spot that you like, and I will be happy to show you this beautiful country and the excellent skiing it offers.
My team of guides and I will provide you with snowmobiles to move among the valleys and glaciers. This gives us the opportunity to cover more ground than on skis alone and will let us make many amazing runs over the course of our time together.
We will also have the option to ice climb, if that interests you as well.
So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun and incredibly scenic 1+ day backcountry skiing experience in Central Chile!
If you like the look of this trip, then I think you will also enjoy my one-day backcountry splitboarding trip also in Central Chile!
There is an option to stay overnight in a mountain hut in Valle Las Arenas.
UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Chile
Mountain guide and instructor from the Chilean Andinism Federation (FEACH) and certified Wilderness First Responder.
I’ve opened several climbing routes in Chile, and was one of the first and very few Chileans to summit Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy, Paine Grande and Torres del Paine.
I climbed almost all the technical mountain in Cajón del Maipo, in Central Chile, and did some of the most important routes in Yosemite, Indian Creek and Patagonia.
And regarding ski mountaineering, I skied down Mount Illimani and Huayna Potosí in Bolivia, and Cerro Castillo, Morado Norte and Sur in Chile.

Nicolas is an excellent guide, with incredible mountaineering knowledge and technique (which was particularly worthwhile during our expedition when we encountered harsh winter conditions). His english is also very good. In short, I recommend this mountain guide.
Nico was an incredible guide. I wanted to ski the canaletas in Cerro Arenas and he was excited to take me there. He knows Cajon del Maipo like the back of his hand. Afterall, this is his backyard. He has spent decades skiing, climbing and exploring this region and his knowledge of the terrain and weather is very impressive. His english is good as well, and he is a really nice guy on top of all that. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great ski mountaineering adventure.
My trip with Nicolas was perfect. He catered to my climbing preference and the hot springs at the end of day was exactly what we needed. I would definitely do it again! Thanks Nico for my first experience in climbing in Chile!
The guide did not know the route. We spent a lot of time trying to find the route. The climbing itself was good.
