Are you ready to experience great adventure in Cajón del Maipo? During this splitboarding day program you will get to know a beautiful spot in Chile and enjoy fun descents.

Located in the southeastern region of the Metropolitan Region in Chile, Cajón del Maipo is an Andean canyon surrounded by massifs and hills that belongs to the high basin of the Maipo River.

The region also offers the views of other rivers such as El Yeso and El Volcán, and estuaries like San Gabriel and El Sauce. Here, you will be able to see an impressive landscape and enjoy incredible ski descents once you reach the ideal height.

If you are still doubting about Cajón del Maipo, let me tell you it is one of the top destinations for mountaineers and skiers in Chile, as it has a great variety of attractions, including Lagunillas ski center, and it is just one hour away from the country’s capital, Santiago de Chile.

I recommend you to join in between May and October. Splitboarding in Cajón del Maipo is a must for your trip to Chile!

Join me and experience great splitboarding in Cajón del Maipo. I’ll be glad to show you the best spots! Request to book this trip.

About the guide

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Chile

Mountain guide and instructor from the Chilean Andinism Federation (FEACH) and certified Wilderness First Responder.

I’ve opened several climbing routes in Chile, and was one of the first and very few Chileans to summit Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy, Paine Grande and Torres del Paine.

I climbed almost all the technical mountain in Cajón del Maipo, in Central Chile, and did some of the most important routes in Yosemite, Indian Creek and Patagonia.

And regarding ski mountaineering, I skied down Mount Illimani and Huayna Potosí in Bolivia, and Cerro Castillo, Morado Norte and Sur in Chile.

Nicolas is an excellent guide, with incredible mountaineering knowledge and technique (which was particularly worthwhile during our expedition when we encountered harsh winter conditions). His english is also very good. In short, I recommend this mountain guide.

Nico was an incredible guide. I wanted to ski the canaletas in Cerro Arenas and he was excited to take me there. He knows Cajon del Maipo like the back of his hand. Afterall, this is his backyard. He has spent decades skiing, climbing and exploring this region and his knowledge of the terrain and weather is very impressive. His english is good as well, and he is a really nice guy on top of all that. 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great ski mountaineering adventure.

My trip with Nicolas was perfect. He catered to my climbing preference and the hot springs at the end of day was exactly what we needed. I would definitely do it again! Thanks Nico for my first experience in climbing in Chile!

The guide did not know the route. We spent a lot of time trying to find the route. The climbing itself was good.

The trip was awesome. Our guide Nicolas was extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and very helpful. He is an expert guide. The sights were beautiful. The office quickly responded to our request and questions and provided excellent information.

I was really disappointed with Casa de Guias. It was not a terrible experience because Casa de Guias had found a wonderful guide and assistant although they did not know them (allmountain guide). As to Explore -Share I don´t intent to buy anything. I will write a full description of what happened by e-mail.

The trip was really nice and I enjoyed the climbing a lot!
