Description

The volcanos of Southern Chile, in the Araucania Region, offer countless ski mountaineering possibilities. Come and enjoy the winter season with a professional mountain guide.

Let's conquer 3 summits in 3 days and ski through the highest quality snow!

During this ski tour we'll climb the Villarrica, Lonquimay and Llaima volcanoes. All of them are over 2800 meters of altitude! The main reasons why I love guiding in these volcanoes are:

  • The landscapes you'll admire during this trip are unique;

  • Welcoming culture of Southern Chile;

  • You'll climb and ski with an experienced ski mountaineering guide.

The Lonquimay Volcano (2865 m) is our first objective. We'll climb and ski it with daypacks. The mountain towers above the Malalcahuello village are one of the best ski goals in the region. They offer a sustained 35° descent down from the summit.

The Llaima Volcano (3125 m) is one of the most visually stunning peaks of the Southern Chilean volcanoes. We'll climb and ski its northeastern shoulder. Llaima's last eruption was in 2009!

Finally, the Villarica Volcano (2847 m) offers classic conical shape towers above Pucon. Moreover, it is one of only five volcanoes in the world with an active lava lake in the crater. Similar to our first goal Lonquimay, we'll climb and ski Villarica with daypacks. We'll cover 1615 vertical meters, ending at the ski area on the lower flanks.

This 3-day expedition implies a significant challenge. That is why you will need considerable experience in ski touring and mountaineering. This trip is open to all people in excellent physical condition with downhill skiing abilities. Keep in mind we must ascend and descend around 900 meters in a day, carrying a 15-20 l backpack.

If you find this ski tour interesting please fill out the form and get in touch with me. If I am not available at the date of your arrival, my brother Cristobal will lead this fantastic trip. Both are focused on leading a fun, safe and successful ski touring adventure!

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.
