Shred South America’s best powder
The Andes is a snow making machine. A huge plus of the Andes’ high peaks is its powder dumps, with dry and fluffy snow quality; a pleasure for any backcountry enthusiast to shred. Powder hounds should have their work break booked early in the second half of the year as of July to September in the Andes are the best months for pristine powder. The snow here is high quality and abundant, so visitors will find the white stuff almost all year round. This magnificent part of the world is a must for any powder lover.
Ski an active volcano in the Andes
One of the only active volcanoes in the world you can ski is Volcán Villarrica. The gateway to Patagonia and an icon in this part of Chile, Villarrica is a magnificent beast. The 2,847-meter high volcano erupted in 2015 and ever since has been sought out by skiers and snowboarders as a thrill ride to be conquered. It’s a gem in the Andes, and a visit shouldn’t be missed for those wanting to take home a story or two.
Revel in South American culture during your snow holiday
Like its vast natural landscape, South America’s culture is incredibly unique. Its people are vibrant and welcome their visitors with open arms. In a place so remote, almost cut off from the rest of the world, your hosts will make you feel at home. Bring your dancing shoes for a wild night out, busy your palate with delicious local cuisine, and be ready to experience traditions held dear to the passionate inhabitants of this great land. South America’s culture will decorate your trip with rich memories you could not have anywhere else in the world.
Adventure into backcountry in the Andes
Backcountry in the Andes is unlike any other off-piste adventure. Snowcat and heliski operators in these parts are some of the best in the world, with most companies having more than 20 years of experience under their belt. Because of the wild and rugged nature of the Andes’ backcountry, safety is paramount for these operators. You’ll be in incredibly safe hands with highly experienced guides. Experience translates not only to safety but knowledge of the mountains, where the best snow and verticals will be uncovered for you to play on. The Andes is a backcountry adventure like no other.
