OverviewThis package starts with a pickup from either Santiago International Airport or your hotel in Santiago with a transfer to Los Andes, 75 miles (108km) northeast of Santiago where you will be based for your epic cat skiing adventure with El Arpa.

There are 3 levels of accommodations to choose from to meet your budget with various meal plans.

Each day you will be picked up at your Los Andes accommodation and be shuttled with other guests to your chariot in the sky.

At Arpa you will experience steep endless descents on untracked snow of up to 1,000 m (3,000 ft), plus you will experience vistas of the highest peak in the Andes; Mt Aconcagua (to the east) and views of the pacific ocean to the west.

After two incredible days of cat skiing you will be transferred back to your hotel in Santiago or back to the airport if you are flying out.

Your chariot awaits...
