Highlights

 
     

    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!
