Luxury Lodge, Fine Food and Wine
We love great food, we love great wine and we love great skiing. In Patagonia they meet to make one of the most refined heli-ski experiences in South America. The Carrileufu River Lodge is ideally situated in between the majestic Andes and the Patagonian Desert making for incredible snow conditions. Stunning local wines compliment exquisite local ingredients prepared by the private chef each evening. Don’t be surprised if you look forward to dinner as much as the next day’s heli-skiing.
Be a Pioneer
There is something that bit extra special about skiing where no one has ever skied before. Looking back up at your turns and deciding what to name your run. It won’t stay that way forever but for now at least there are abundant opportunities to pioneer first descents and put your mark on the map of Argentinian skiing history.
Outstanding Terrain & Location
Having the lodge located in the heart of the heli-skiing area gives you access to over 600,000 acres of ski terrain within a 30-mile flight radius. The mountains of the Cholila area are known to have the best snow in the entire region of Central Patagonia and and with a total area of 1,300,000 acres there is a huge variety in the terrain from large alpine bowls, endless glacier runs, steep descents and couloirs, to rolling powder fields and some of the finest tree skiing in South America.
