Central Cordillera Heli Skiing Overview

The Central Cordillera packages are made up of a selection of some of the best heli skiing spots, with the best heliskiing terrain in Chile (and the world for that matter!). 

There are several base options that include staying in a 5-star hotel in downtown Santiago, toughing it out in a remote Chilean lodge & spa in the heart of the Andes, soaking up the Chilean culture staying in a mountain lodge at Farellones (where you have easy access to the Tres Valles ski areas), doing it in style at Valle Nevado's top hotelor staying at the Puma Lodge high up in the Andes.

Whilst these packages are predominantly for private groups of 4 or 8 guests, you can inquire about this package as a solo skier/boarder or small group. Andes Heliboarding will try to group you with other skiers & boarders to make up groups of 4 or 8.

Terrain & Ability Andes Heliboarding has access to such a huge tenure of terrain. There is something suitable for everyone from strong intermediate skiers & boarders and above. The terrain you access will ultimately be dependent on the group's ability.

Below is a short video teaser based on the "Urban Heliski Program"....

Typical Itinerary

There is no set itinerary for these packages. If you choose a 7 night / 6 day heli skiing package your guides will take you to the best terrain with the best conditions each day.

If you are on a 7 night / 3 day heli skiing package, you would normally start your 3 consecutive days of heli skiing from day one finishing up the remaining days with some resort skiing and/or well-earned pampering at the day spa!

On a typical day, you can expect from 6 - 14 runs of varying vertical with an average vertical of 10,000 metres per day.
