VOLCANO SKI & SPLITBOARD TOUR
Chile 9 days
This trip is a unique splitboard and ski touring adventure exploring the Southern Chilean volcanoes. With a mix of ruggedness, exoticness and wonderful Chilean hospitality this trip is like no other. Located in Chile’s beautiful lake district, we travel on horses from the lush green forests to backcountry huts, and then ascend on skis or splitboards to the high alpine slopes for exceptional off-season shredding. This trip is truly volcano hopping at its finest so pack a light bag and jump in the van, its go time!
Our Chilean ski tour objectives are the volcanoes Casablanca, Puyehue, Villarica and Osorno. These summits are located at manageable altitudes so the experience is enjoyable…and no days are lost to acclimatizing. The touring varies from epic full days to mellow 3-4 hour adventures. The phenomonal ski conditions that these Volcanoes can offer are legendary. Come experience a September session in Chile as we go on this amazing ski adventure, often finishing our day with a visit to the local hot springs. What more can you ask for!
We stay in very comfortable cabanas and refugio’s dining on the local cuisine which includes the most delicious seafood and steaks. From the private hot tub on your deck to the great food, incredible wines and amazing ski touring that have made this region of Chile popular, this trip is one not to be missed!
Travel is relatively easy with an overnight flight to Santiago, Chile, followed by a short hopper flight to the city of Osorno in the heart of the Lake District, where we will be there to start your adventure with you!
