Description

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

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.

Farellones

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.

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
