Cajon del Maipo guided ski touring adventure, near Santiago

Cajon del Maipo guided ski touring adventure, near Santiago | Chile

Visit the Chilean Metropolitan Region and carve turns in the amazing slopes of Cajon del Maipo in company of Nicolas, local IFMGA aspirant mountain guide.


+1 Day

May - Oct




Cajon del Maipo is an Andean canyon located in the southeast of the Metropolitan Region, Chile. It belongs to the high basin of the Maipo River, where it is surrounded or “encased” by hills and massifs.

Discover the greatness of Cajon del Maipo, its landscapes, glaciers and summits in this ski touring program with me. Once we reach an ideal height we will enjoy incredible ski descents and seek out the best lines.

The Cajon del Maipo is one hour from Santiago de Chile and it is one of the most chosen destinations by mountaineers and skiers. Among the main attractions here there is the famous Lagunillas ski center, where we can go.

If you have some previous experience in backcountry skiing and you will be visiting Chile between May and October, Cajon del Maipo has to be on your list of goals.

Mountain Guide

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.
