Volcano Puyehue
Skiing into the Crater

Season: August - October
Duration: 5 Days (possible extension for more days)
Level: Intermediate, Advanced, and Expert Backcountry Skiers

Backcountry skiing volcano's crater - Patagonia South AmericaThe experience of skiing into the crater of a Patagonian volcano is like no other!  Volcano Puyehue stands tall in the Patagonian Andes of Chile at 2,236 m (7,336 ft) and its cone hosts a 2.4 km (1 mile) wide crater.  A crater full of snow!   For skiers, this means 360 degrees of options with the aspects.  There are Alaskan style spines and lots of steeps.  This magical ski spot is WAY off the beaten track, and it is an adventure that our mountain guides would like to share with expert backcountry skiers who want to experience something special and totally different. 

In September of 2009, we guided with the film crew Rocky Mountains Sherpas and Nate Nash (cameraman for Matchstick Production for 10 + years). We had a blast organizing logistics, guiding, and helping with the filming of the crater of Volcano Puyehue in Chile as it was skied by world-class athletes from Salomon, Helly Hansen, and 4frnt Skis:  Mark Abma, Eric Hjorleifson and Chris Rubens.  They shot footage to create an environmental film, “ALL.I.CAN”, and a TV show for Salomon Freeski TV.  Due to our success from this ski film, we had the opportunity to repeat the adventure in 2010 with The North Face athletes for a snowboarding film and article in Transworld Snowboarding Magazine.
