Description

Would you like to climb an amazing volcano in the Chilean Patagonia and ski all the way to its base? Then come to Pucón for an unforgettable alpine experience in the Lonquimay!

The Lonquimay Volcano (2,856m) is in the Malalcahuello District, in La Araucanía Region of southern Chile. Standing at 223km from Pucon, and surrounded by a unique landscape, this cone shaped stratovolcano is one of the best ski mountaineering destinations in the Andes.

Our day trip starts with a 3,45h-drive from Pucón to the Lonquimay ski center, also known as Corralco base. The ascent takes approximately 5-6 hours. With soft snow conditions, it is possible to skin to the top. But if we find a harder terrain, we will use crampons and an ice axe.

From the summit, we will enjoy breathtaking views of seven volcanoes and the stunning Araucaria forest that surrounds Lonquimay. After a short break we’ll be ready for the descent: an endless open terrain with 35-45° slopes will be waiting for us! Please note that the ascent requires a good fitness level. For the descent you should be able to ski on powder snow.

So, if you are up for this awesome ski mountaineering tour in the Chilean Patagonia, please contact me. Come to Pucón and discover the impressive Lonquimay volcano!

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Chile

I was born in 1990, and I always been surrounded by mountains, with family and friends in the Andes.

I did the first Chilean ascent to Cerro Torre via Ferrari route, four ascents to Mt, Fitz Roy, more than 12 to Torres del Paine and the first alpine traverse of the three towers.

I also climbed in the Himalayas, Yosemite, and other Andean countries such as Argentina, Bolivia and Peru.

I did the IFMGA/UIAGM aspirant course in 2017 in Bolivia, and completed the AIARE level 2 avalanche training.

I work together with my brother Juan (we are the Señoret Brothers). Contact me if you want to discover the most beautiful mountain spots in Chile!

Great guide. Picked a well-rounded spot for a new group, with numerous options. Understanding of our lack of time at altitude. Great guy.

Excellent day at Portillo with Cristobal. He gave us several options in a planning session the night before. He also communicated well on the day of about current conditions and what we were seeing. We ended up doing a secondary objective due to what we saw in the field.
