Aconcagua Cat & Heliskiing

 

Itinerary:

Day 1

Welcome to Chile! Your guide will meet you at the airport and transfer you straight to the slopes – Ski Portillo. What better way to warm up your legs in preparation for your days of cat and heli-skiing/boarding than at South America’s premier boutique ski resort. In the late afternoon, you will be transferred to the mountain town of Los Andes, where you will  check in to Casa San Regis, an historic 19th-century hacienda. A former manor home on an expansive 40,000 acre estate, Casa San Regis is now a boutique bed & breakfast, offering comfortable accommodations with a traditional flair. Your Chilean hosts, Marcela and Alexis, offer warm hospitality and personalized service, often joining guests for dinner and sharing insight into local culture and history. The roaring fireplace in the living room is an excellent place to sit and enjoy après ski after a long day of skiing.

Meals: Dinner

 

Day 2 

Adventure skiing in the shadow of Mt. Aconcagua. Fantastic views of the summit (the highest peak outside the Himalayas) await you atop Valle El Arpa, South America’s only snowcat resort. In an anything-but-typical day, you’ll ski over 13,000 vertical feet of some of the best untracked powder in the world.
