Traversing the majestic Andes mountains aboard a helicopter and reaching pinnacle mountain points will certainly get the adrenaline surging through your veins. The rush of skiing down otherwise inaccessible peaks is nothing short of exhilarating, creating memories to last you a lifetime. Here at Pure Powder, we have just the thing for you – we promise breathtaking landscapes and the unmatched Chilean heli skiing adventure of a lifetime.


Whether you are seeking an adventure into the heart of the frozen wilderness, or a perfectly curated blend of exhilarating experiences and comfort, look no further! Follow along as we explore some of the finest heli skiing destinations in Chile and discover the ultimate blend of adventure, with the accompaniment of style and luxury.




Exploring The World Of Chilean Heli Skiing


Typically, Chilean heli skiing destinations feature a mountain climate: the hot summer weather is significantly contrasted with the icy winter. One can generally expect brief, yet heavy snowfall during sunny days. Most of the skiing activities are on open Alpine glaciers that lead to steep descents and gullies, while the marine environment assures consistent snowfall and stable conditions. Winter climates are optimal for heli skiing activities, all whilst providing the opportunity to retreat and enjoy your accommodation’s cosy facilities.


At Pure Powder, we offer tailored heli skiing programs, which are aimed to cater for every type of adventurer. Whether you are with a group of friends or seeking a more intimate helicopter skiing experience, we have programs to accommodate both. Pure Powder offers two signature helicopter skiing experiences to explore the Chilean Andes. You can book a small group program for 4 guests per group, or you can opt for a private group of 3. Both options guarantee flexibility, with the added benefit of the private package coming with 2 guides at your disposal.


Beyond the thrill of the adventure, these Chilean destinations offer a myriad of activities to throw yourself into during your stay. If you find yourself desperately needing a ‘powder break’, you can explore your hotel’s surrounding area and indulge in other exciting activities. One could enjoy a blissful hike or indulge in an authentic cultural experience – there truly is something for everyone to enjoy at all times of your trip.


The hotels partnered with Pure Powder offer a quiet retreat sheltered from the harshness of the snow. Whether you choose to stay at Hotel Alitplancio Cajó del Maipo, NOI Puma Lodge, or NOI Vitacura Hotel, you’ll find a space where magnificence meets cosiness. All three of these stays facilitate a sense of ease, where all your needs throughout your trip will be met. Each of our partner hotels offers a unique ambience, from rustic chic to majestic sophistication – depending on your preferences.


Exploring the world of Chilean helicopter skiing with Pure Powder isn’t just about the thrill of deep powder skiing – the level of relaxation you feel after a busy day on the slopes is equally as important. Immerse yourself in a world of unimaginable beauty, standing in the presence of the awe-inspiring Andes Mountains. Feel completely cared for and nourished, ensuring that every aspect of your trip is an unforgettable one.
