The volcanoes of Southern Chile’s Araucania Region are fantastic ski mountaineering objectives. Our 10-day ski mountaineering expedition attempts ski descents from the summits of several Chilean peaks: Volcán Lonquimay (9,400′ | 2,865m), Volcán Llaima (10,253′ | 3,125m), Volcán Villarica (9,341′ | 2,847m), and Volcán Lanín (12,293′ | 3,747m). Trip highlights include:

Climb and ski four Andean peaks over the course of one ski mountaineering expedition.
Combine both single and multi-day ascents during the expedition, staying in comfortable chilean lodges between objectives.
Build your ski mountaineering experience with instruction and practice on fun and challenging terrain.
Experience the beautiful landscapes and welcoming culture of Southern Chile.
Climb and ski with an experienced RMI Ski Mountaineering Guide, benefiting from their background, training, and expertise and see why we continue to set the standard in guiding excellence.

Cost: $3,200
