Description

Would you like to combine skiing and mountaineering all on a same day trip? Then come to Pucón, Chile, for a guided adventure to the Llaima volcano!

The Llaima (3,125m) is one of the largest and most active volcanoes of the Chilean Andes. It is located within the Conguillío National Park, and along with Sierra Nevada surrounds the Conguillío Lake. With the ski center of Las Araucarias lying on its western slopes, this stunning peak is an important tourist destination of the South American Patagonia.

Our ski day tour starts with a 2.5-hour drive from Pucon to the base of Llaima volcano. The top seems to be close, but it’s an optical illusion: the ascent will take us about 6 hours. From the stunning crater rim of Llaima we will enjoy a panoramic view of the Andes. And after a short break we’ll be ready for skiing!

The ski descent from the top of Llaima is quite steep, requiring careful and controlled turns. With excellent snow quality and breathtaking views, this experience will amaze you!

Please note that this day outing requires a good fitness level and at least intermediate powder skiing skills.

So, if you want to climb to the summit of the Llaima volcano and ski all the way down to its base, just get in touch with me! Come to Pucón for an awesome ski mountaineering day tour!

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.
