Heliskiing in the Andes
The High Andes of Southamerica and the entire Patagonia in Argentina and Chile offers huge solitude, big glacieated mountains, undiscovered ski terrain, remote locations with dramatic peaks excellent for ski touring, backcountry skiing and heliskiing.
The idea of Andescross offering Heliski trips along the Andes is to be able to share with you two main areas:
The High Andes of Mendoza/ Santiago de Chile and the area of Patagonia and the Lake Districts nearby San Carlos de Bariloche.
Also we would love to show and guide you the Central Patagonia area that offers so much remoteness and first descents, but for this area since helicopter is not located “in situ” we can only offer it on specific demand, generally have been done for ski film crews only. This last option is possible but pricey.
We co-work with 2 main heliski operations, one based in Santiago de Chile and one in San Carlos de Bariloche, the gateway to Patagonia.
We guide our own clients using others heliski operation logistics.
Price wise is exactly the same, there are not “on top fees” doing it through us. The only difference is if you want to ski with us since we did some adventures together in the past or because you have heard about our team and reputation along this last 12 years. The reasons to come with us are that we are one of the few companies with full UIAGM-IFMGA guides in Southamerica, Argentina and Chile, and our passion for skiing had taken us World wide guiding experiencing remote locations like Antarctica , Northern Fiords of Norway, Chugach and Wrangells-Saint Elias range in Alaska, Swiss and French Alps and of course Patagonia.
Call your friends, email us, sharp your edges, wax your babies and board the chopper with our team, you will not regret enjoying your vertical meters with us!
Groups are formed by minimum 4 participants guided by some of the best UIAGM-IFMGA Mountain guides in Argentina/ Chile.
