Description

I will guide you on this awesome and sublime 1+ day of freeride skiing in El Colorado, near Santiago (Farellones, Chile), one of South America’s top freeride skiing locale’s that is renowned for its amazingly deep and fresh powder, great views out over the Chilean countryside and wide open, enjoyable slopes to ski on.

El Colorado is a Chilean skiing area located just 39km away from the capital city of the country, Santiago, and is a very popular skiing destination as a result of this close proximity. World freeride skiing events are held at El Colorado each year, adding to its reputation as a good freeride skiing location.

Our trip begins in the morning, at approximately 8:30am, when we pick you up from either of the 2 ski resorts of Farellones or Valle Nevado.

Once at El Colorado we go straight in to the freeride skiing, and over the course of the day we have the opportunity to undertake up to 4 descents of 1000m or more.

It is hard to overstate how good the conditions here are for freeride skiing, as they are tucked away from the busy ski resorts and take advantage of the clean, crisp weather and conditions that Chile is known for.

Myself and the other guides are all very passionate about freeride skiing, and if you are too then we promise these trips will be truly memorable experiences.

After a whole day of wearing ourselves out with the immense amount of freeride skiing, we then drop you back at your accommodation in Farellones or Valle Nevado, hopefully having made you love Chile even more and whetted your appetite for more freeride skiing.

This is one of the best freeride skiing spots in South America – book now to make sure you experience the thrill!

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Chile

I am Sebastian Rojas Schmidt from Cajón del Maipo. I leave in the middle of the mountains in a small mountain hut during the winter season and, the rest of the year, I travel between Patagonia, the Andes, the Alps or Himalaya.

I have climbed many summits in South America´s Patagonia and 2 mountains over 8000 meters: the Anapurna (8091m) and the Broad Peak (8047m).

I guide all around the Andes, Patagonia, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru. I climb and do mountaineering during the summer, and freeride, ski touring and ice climbing during the winter.

Chile and South America in general are full of mind-blowing spots and there is a lot to explore! Come discover the magical mountains of the Andes, ski freeride in Cajón del Maipo and climb in Patagonia!

Don’t hesitate to contact me on Explore Share if you are looking for specific programs. I will be glad to share my passion and prepare your next expedition.
