POWDER SOUTH operates in the Chilean Central Andes, primarily between latitudes 32 degrees and 35 degrees South. We are based outside of Santiago, Chile, where we have access to thousands of hectares of unlimited terrain.
Such terrain includes the Aconcagua, Juncal and Rio Colorado Valleys to the North, the Olivares, Parraguirre, and Tupungato Valleys located centrally, and the Aparejo, Marmolejo, Pangal, Rengo to Tinguiririca Valleys to the South. This is an amazingly vast mountain region offering a variety of endless terrain, from glaciated Andean peaks to steep ridges and gullies, with elevations ranging from 2,500 meters (8,250’) to 4,500 meters (14,850’), a combination of some of the world’s most exciting heli-skiing/snowboarding terrain imaginable, surrounded by a breathtaking backdrop of 6,700 meter (22,000’) peaks.
Our highly skilled, experienced, and professional guides find terrain suitable for every skier and snowboarder’s ability and standards. With such endless terrain and vertical, our guides safely find terrain for those who want to challenge and improve skills and those who want a mellow, fun, and exclusive powder day in the backcountry. We have the privilege of maritime snow pack, which is dry due to the high altitude, synonymous with champagne powder at its best. Snow accumulation comes from the Pacific Ocean, a mere 100 miles (160 km) west of the Andes. Flying conditions are best during winter, due to an almost zero thermal reduction, which is a daily weather phenomena in summer caused by heat and cumulus build-up in early afternoon.
