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.
