Highlights

 
     

    The Chilean Andes region is a spectacular spot for winter activities. Join me on this splitboarding program in Chile and discover 4 amazing volcanoes including the Lonquimay (2,865 meters), Tolhuaca (2,806), Llaima (3,195 meters), and Villarrica (2,847 meters).

    Each day, we’ll have breakfast early in the morning and drive to the starting point of the ascent. Then, after enjoying snowy descents all day, we’ll return to our lodge and enjoy dinner. In addition, we’ll have a rest day in which you will enjoy the restorative volcanic hot springs in the region. You will find a more detailed itinerary below.

    Finally, if you want to be a part of this adventure, consider that it is a requirement to have some prior splitboarding or skiing experience. Also, you will need a good physical condition.

    Do you find this program attractive? Then do not hesitate and make your reservation now. You will love splitboarding in the volcanoes of Chile!

    I also offer an expedition to Ojos del Salado on the border between Chile and Argentina. Check it out!

    About the Guide

     
     

    My family brought me to the mountains of Portillo in the Andes, when I was barely 15 days old and I've been hocked ever since. Going there every year I´ve met great skiers and mountain people from all over the world and I was inspire by the adventure stories that brought them to these mountains. In my twenty’s I set out in search of that lifestyle, moved to the mountains and have been skiing and mountaineering ever since. Now after years exploring in the Andes and Patagonia, these are some of my favorite trips. Join me for some epic times!

Since 2005 I’ve guided multiple expeditions to Mount Aconcagua, Ojos del Salado and many others that include 19000ft mountains, ski ascents and moderate alpine climbs, where I organize and take care of every detail for my own groups and sometimes for friends companies.

Started in 1998 ski Touring with friends and then helping senior guides with their groups and been guiding my own clients since 2004, teaching skiing and guiding small groups.
