Powder South’s Argentina base is unlike anything the ski industry has seen before. Situated at the foot of the towering Andes Mountains in Argentina’s renowned Uco Valley winemaking region, only 90 minutes from the Mendoza International Airport, you can almost pick your ski line from the lodge, the view is that spectacular.
The Uco Valley
Ski the other side of the Andes
Do you like making first descents and naming your runs? In the early 2000's Powder South did just that in Chile, exploring and naming EVERY heli-ski run in the heart of the Central Andes. Now we are offering the same new feeling in Argentina. Our terrain is vast, varied (with runs for all levels of skiers/snowboarders), and situated at precisely the same latitude as our Chilean operation, on the other side of the world’s greatest mountain range. What does this mean? Deep, dry powder, empty terrain, and a feeling of exploration that simply does not exist anymore in most of the world’s mountains.
