The Powder Capital of the Andes

Elemental Adventure •

Not far from Chile's capital Santiago, the Heliski zone surrounding Puma Lodge is known as ‘The Powder Capital of the Andes’. Outside of the Himalayas, the Andes are home to the highest mountains in the world. High altitude combined with a maritime snowpack equates to light and dry snow throughout the season. A rugged and vast array of magnificent peaks and alpine terrain stretches further than the eye can see – even from a helicopter! Expect long powder runs, big alpine bowls, spectacular views and plenty of sunshine. As well as revelling in the skiing; enjoy the local Chilean culture, fine wines, delicious food and the warm South American hospitality. Post-heliski, bask in luxury surrounded by nature. Puma Lodge’s 5-star hotel and spa facilities nestle deep in cypress forest in the cradle of the Andes Mountains between Río Los Cipreses National Reserve and the border with Argentina.

Heli-Ski Safari

By Jonas Ernevi •

This is not your regular Canadian heli-skiing. This is big wild northern British Columbia and compared to southern BC with all of its heli-ski operations sandwiched together; it’s like a different country.
