Description

The volcanoes of the Chilean Araucania Region offer amazing terrains for winter sports. On this 3-day splitboarding trip you will explore Villarrica, Lonquimay and Llaima under my expert guidance!

This program combines climbing and splitboarding in Southern Chile. We will reach 3 over-2,800m summits in 3 days, ride on top-quality snow, and enjoy stunning alpine landscapes.

On the first day we will head up to the top of the Lonquimay Volcano (2,865 m). After reaching its summit we will be ready for a 35° splitboard descent. The Llaima Volcano (3,125 m) will be our second objective. Last erupted in 2009, this is one of the most beautiful of the Southern Chilean volcanoes. We’ll climb and ride its northeastern shoulder.  Finally, on the third day we will climb the Villarrica Volcano (2,847 m) which has an active lava lake in its crater. We will climb 1,615 vertical meters, ending with an amazing powder splitboarding descent.

This 3-day expedition poses a significant challenge. Therefore, you need considerable experience in both powder splitboarding and mountaineering to join. Additionally, you should also be in excellent physical condition to ascend and descend around 900 meters per day, carrying a 15-20 L. backpack.

Are you ready for an exhilarating splitboarding tour in the Andes? Then book your place now and join me on this 3-day adventure in the Chilean Araucania Region!

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

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.
