    • How many runs and how much vertical we ski or ride each day depends on weather and safety conditions along with the fitness and pace of your group. An average group with good fitness will shred three to four laps and 5000+ vertical feet.

    • Remember, having good fitness is crucial to maximizing your time in the mountains with us creating unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime! A fit group will make 3-4 but many clients who are healthy and moderately active reap great rewards from a slower paced outing that makes one or two beautiful descents. 

    • One of the greatest benefits to Araucania Andina is that we have fantastic tree skiing and snowboarding! Unlike the central zone, we get out during most storms. It's one of the reasons that we chose this majestic zone that gives us more operable days in the mountains each year.

    • You will find it much more enjoyable to begin your backcountry adventures when you have some off-piste abilities under your belt. A lesson with a certified instructor at your home resort is our first recommendation on the road to increasing your abilities and the fun you can have.

    • ZCO AraucanÍa Airport Temuco will be your final destination after a connection through SCL Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport Santiago, Chile

    • We always recommend learning a little of the language when traveling to another country but it's not necessary. Our guides are all bi-lingual ensuring that there will be no uncomfortable misunderstandings while you are here.

    • We can provide an airport shuttle and as always the transportation for all activities and dinners is included in your itinerary. If you insist on renting a vehicle be sure to reserve a 4x4 ahead of time and be sure that it is functioning properly before departing for the mountains.

    • The sooner you contact us the more likely it is that we can serve you the best experience imaginable. Our services are under demand for the quality of our outings and personalized care. We can except bookings with as little as 12 hours notice but it all comes down to guide availability. We recommend you contact us today!

    • From the indoor pools of Malalcahuello to the fudres of Cañon del Blanco the natural thermal waters will rejuvenate your joints and relax your mind. We can even dial in a tour of hot tubs if you're not a skier or snowboarder.

    • Corralco Ski Resort has fantastic beginner slopes and an excellent ski school with bi-lingual instructors if you need to brush up your skills on the snow. Corralco also has great side-country off the lift lines running up the Lonquimay Volcano. The biggest upside to the ski resort is using the lift access to approach Lonquimay on summit days. It's a blessing worth experiencing.

    • We focus on small group and private outings allowing us to minimize conflicting objectives or styles within groups. We take time getting to know you so that we are sure to fit groups to the best of our abilities. With spectacular summits surrounding us finding middle roads isn't an issue. 

    • We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you bring your boots with you as a carry-on. Unhappy feet are the last thing you want to ruin your snowboard or ski vacation to South America.
