South American Heli Skiing Adventure in Chile
PDF Print E-mail

Experience the Chilean Central Andes in style and ski one of the many unnamed gullies at the Parraguirre Valley. Such terrain includes the Aconcagua, Juncal and Rio Colorado Valleys to the north, the Olivares, Parraguirre, and Tupungato Valleys located centrally, and the Aparejo, Marmolejo, Pangal, Rengo to Tinguiririca Valleys to the south. This is an amazingly vast mountain region offering a variety of endless terrain from glaciated Andean peaks to steep ridges and gullies, with elevations ranging from 2,500 meters (8,250') to 4,500 meters (14,850'), a combination of some of the world’s most exciting heli-skiing/snowboarding terrain imaginable, surrounded by a breathtaking backdrop of 6,700 meter (22,000') peaks.

The region is famous for dry continental snow pack at high altitude, synonymous with champagne powder at its best. Snow accumulation comes from the Pacific Ocean, a mere 100 miles (160 km) west of the Andes. Flying conditions are best during winter, due to an almost zero thermal reduction, a daily weather phenomena in summer, caused by heat and cumulus build-up in early afternoon. 

TRIP ITINERARY

DAY 1
After landing in Santiago, Chile, a representative will meet you at the airport and direct you to your van for ground transportation, or to your reserved helicopter connection, to transport you to your lodging in the mountains. You will meet with your heli-ski guide for gear check, briefing, group selection, and later an avalanche beacon search and safety clinic will be conducted, along with the required helicopter briefing. Welcome Dinner at the Lodge.

DAY 2
Immediately after breakfast we walk to the heliport only yards from your room. Soon we will carve our first turns in the pristine Andes, an unforgettable alpine setting of Himalayan proportions. Each group will have a minimum of 1 heli-ski guide, a 4 : 1 ratio, or a 3 : 1 ratio depending on the number of guests. Today we take it slowly. It will be your first day exposed to the thin air at nearly 15,000' elevation in the magnificent surroundings of the dramatic and rugged Central Andes Mountains. Back to Base for the night to a well deserved gourmet dinner at the Lodge.

DAY 3
After breakfast we gain altitude as we become more comfortable and familiar with the terrain, as well as better acclimatized to the altitude. There is always the possibility of discovering a new landing zone, or virgin terrain never skied or snowboarded before. It is highly likely that you will have the chance to pioneer a few runs with us, since the terrain is vast, the possibilities endless, and much is yet unexplored. Return to Base and dinner at the Lodge.

DAY 4
Another exciting day with more runs, powder and fun! We continue discovering the Andes and tracking new powder. Picnic at mid-day, then continue heli-skiing and/or heli-boarding. By this time the group will be well acclimatized and feeling stronger. We may go a bit higher or perhaps move to a different valley, depending on conditions, and group strength and abilities. Return to Base for dinner.

DAY 5
After breakfast we repeat our heli-ski routine. Those who are ready for a break can soak at the nearby hot springs, go horseback riding, choose a day of resort skiing, or simply relax at the Lodge.

DAY 6
After breakfast we continue with our exciting program; more heli-time, and more turns and vertical feet in the majestic Andes Mountains. Return to Base for dinner.

DAY 7
After breakfast we start our 6th and final day of our heli-ski / heli-board journey into the Andes. After skiing, we pack and transfer you to your hotel in Santiago, the Park Hyatt, for an enjoyable Friday evening in the city.

DAY 8
After breakfast and a relaxing morning, we transfer you to Santiago's International Airport to meet your flight, or you may extend your trip and continue traveling on your own.
