Itinerary details

Day 01 - 03
From the airport, head straight up to Farellones, a mountain village just 90 minutes from Santiago located in the largest skiable area in Chile. Over the next three days, explore the trails and terrain parks at the three neighboring resorts and drop into an untouched backcountry bowl for some off-piste action.
 
Day 04
After a few morning runs, get ready to move northward to the town of Los Andes, our base camp for the next three nights. Make a stop along the way at the San Esteban Winery, one of the Aconcagua Valley’s top local wineries, for a well-deserved tasting.
 
Day 05
Discover Portillo, a boutique ski resort that has become a classic South American experience since its inauguration in 1948. Enjoy wide-open slopes with no lift lines or take to the vast tracts of virgin backcountry turf nearby.
 
Day 06 - 07
The only cat skiing operation in South America, Ski Arpa is sweet music to the skier’s soul. Spend two days reveling in 13,000 ft. vertical drops overlooking Mt. Aconcagua on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other.
