Would you like to enjoy a thrilling alpine adventure in South America? Then come to Chile for a ski touring trip in the Central Andes. We can explore four different areas: Cajon del Maipo, Cerro Plomo, Portillo, Juncal Valley!

With easy access from Santiago, the Central Andes offer thousands of hectares of skiable terrain. People from all over the world come to this part of the world to explore beautiful glaciers, steep couloirs, and stunning powder slopes.

On this ski touring outing, we can discover four regions of the Central Andes. Furthermore, you can join me for several days and explore more than just one of them. These are our options:

  • Cajon del Maipo: With altitudes ranging from 2,500 to 4,500m., here we will find an awesome terrain with light and dry powder.  
  • Cerro Plomo: This 5,434m. mountain has abundant snow even in spring, and offers breathtaking views of the Andes and its stunning valleys.
  • Portillo: From this world renowned ski resort we can easily reach awesome side-country areas with fresh powder and steep slopes.
  • Juncal Valley: Lying at the foot of Nevado Juncal and its fabulous glacier, this spot is perfect for skiing on different types of terrains.

Please keep in mind that this outing requires some ski touring experience and a good fitness level: we will climb carrying our skis to reach deep powder spots. Of course, I will be there every step of the way to help and guide you. 

So if you are up for this amazing ski touring adventure in Chile, please get in touch with me. Let’s enjoy the fresh powder and the panoramic views of the Central Andes!

I have many different winter trips in this same country. Check out, for example, my Guided ski tour in Villarrica, Lonquimay and Llaima.

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!

What people are saying about Cristobal



Everything was great- we lucked out and had good snow!



Cristobel was a very knowledgeable guide and he provided a good level of encouragement to push me through hard sections of climbing rather than letting me give up. Unfortunately, my original guide for two days of climbing was unable to make it and so I was rebooked for 1 day of climbing with Cristobel. What was upsetting about this was that it was more expensive to complete 1 day of climbing compared to the two days I was originally booked in for. I ended up having to pay more money for half the climbing. I think Explore-Share could improve by having a more consistent price structure for the guides, or at least being clear about why one guide is more expensive.



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.



We had a great trip with Cristobal Senoret in torres del paine!  He was very knowledgeable and helpful.  Beautiful backcountry.
