Description

If you are looking for an exciting winter adventure in the Andes, this is an opportunity that you should not miss! Follow me on a ski mountaineering day to the Lanin volcano, near Pucón!

Located 75km from Pucón, on the border with Argentina, Lanin (3,726m) is the highest mountain in the region of Araucanía, in Northern Patagonia. This ice-clad, cone-shaped stratovolcano forms part of two national parks: Lanín (Argentina) and Villarrica (Chile).

After meeting in Pucón, we will hike 7 hours to the summit of Lanin. From there, we will start an awesome ski descent. As well as top-quality powder snow, we will enjoy breathtaking views of surrounding mountains such as Lonquimay, Llaima, Villarrica, Quetrupillan and Osorno!

Please note that this requires a good fitness level: the route is not technical, but its high altitude makes it quite challenging. Furthermore, you should know how to ski on powder snow.

So, if you want to reach the top of the Lanin volcano and ski all the way down, please contact me. Get ready for an unforgettable alpine experience!

I also offer the chance to ski in several spots of the Central Andes. Check it out here.

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Chile

I was born in 1987, and since I was young I’ve been around the mountains, and for the past 12 years I’ve been practicing all mountain disciplines.

Some highlights of my climbing career: First Chilean to Cerro Torre via Ragni, first Torres del Paine alpine style traverse, and many other first ascents.

I did the IFMGA/UIAGM aspirant course in Bolivia in 2016, and recently got my full IFMGA certification in April 2018. I have also AIARE level 2 training.

Come and discover the mountains of Chile, a wonderful country, where we will have a unique experience together with a professional guide, in a truly unforgettable trip, it will be a pleasure to be able to guide you through some of the mountains of my country in your next vacations, i am sure will be the first of many adventures that we will enjoy together in the mountains of the Andes.
