Central Andes Base Camps 3-day ski tour | undefined

Join Carlos, on this ski tour adventure across the Central Andes Base Camps. Discover wonderful places like the Cajon del Maipo, Portillo or Farellones.


3 Days

Jul - Oct




Chile is a land of adventure. But winter, brings a special glow to this region. Because the snow covers the Central Andes Base camps, it turns them into a winter wonderland, perfect for our ski tour adventure!

This trip is ideal for intermediate and advanced skiers. So we’ll cover many wild and remote areas. But, some of the places we can visit are:

Cajon del Maipo

Due to its location, this place is ideal for those who want to stay away from ski resorts. The Cajon del Maipo is a deep and dazzling mountain canyon, located near Santiago de Chile. It lies within the Maipo river basin, where its surrounded by hills and massifs. And, it has access to rivers like the Volcan, Yeso and Colorado. Also, you can visit stunning lagoons such as the San Gabriel, San José, Manzano, Manzanito, Coyanco and El Sauce.


Portillo is the most prestigious and famous ski resort in South America. And, it is located only 40 kilometers from the base of Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the continent. Right at the heart of the Andes, it used to be a pass between Chile and Argentina. So, its excellent slopes, powder snow make it a perfect setting for our adventure.


It is located near the capital of the country, Santiago de Chile, only 36 km away. One of its characteristic is the unique and beautiful architecture of its houses and huts. It’s surrounded by pine forests and scenic views. The ski resort in this area is world class. And the constant snow precipitations always cover this area with fresh and pristine snow ready for you to tackle!

So if you want to explore any of these wonderful places, send me a request. I’ll make sure you have a wonderful time ski touring through the Andes! If you are looking for another adventure, I also guide this Backcountry skiing in Portillo area.

Mountain Guide

My family brought me to the mountains of Portillo in the Andes, when I was barely 15 days old and I've been hocked ever since. Going there every year I´ve met great skiers and mountain people from all over the world and I was inspire by the adventure stories that brought them to these mountains. In my twenty’s I set out in search of that lifestyle, moved to the mountains and have been skiing and mountaineering ever since. Now after years exploring in the Andes and Patagonia, these are some of my favorite trips. Join me for some epic times!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
