I’d like to invite skiers and winter adventurers to this 2 day expedition since I think Huayna Potosi is a great spot to practice real ski touring in Bolivia and climb a mythic summit.

The Huayna Potosi mountain is near La Paz. In this area of Cordillera Real we have warm and cozy huts as well as camping sites to sleep under the stars, even at more than 5000 meters in height! From up there we will have the stunning views of Lake Titicaca and the Yungas (subtropical jungle).

We will also get to see amazing mines, lagoons, a dam at the head of the valley and a breathtaking panorama on Telata and Charquini.

Our meeting and final point will be La Paz, capital city of Bolivia. Please find more details of the itinerary at the end of this description.

If you find this ski tour interesting, please send your request to get in touch with me and make the proper arrangements. 

I also lead a longer ski mountaineering program in other peaks of Cordillera Real. Check it out here!

About the guide

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Bolivia

I worked for several adventure tourism companies in Bolivia, guiding mountaineering, rock climbing, ski touring and ice climbing.

I love all the mountain activities, and travelled all along the Andes range, climbing peaks like Illampu, Chachacomani, Telata, Tiquimani, Sajama, Parinacota, Pisco in Peru and Aconcagua in Argentina.

I also did ascents in the Alps and in Australia.

I was trained in Chamonix by the French mountaineering school (ENSA).

I also worked as instructor in Bolivia’s guiding school, training new guides.

Get in touch with me if you are interested in discovering any of the unique mountain spots in Bolivia!
