Typical Itinerary

Day 1- Saturday (arrival day)
After landing in Santiago in Chile, a Powder South representative will meet you at the airport and direct you to your van for ground transportation, or to your reserved helicopter connection, to transport you to your lodging in the mountains. Once at the lodge, you will meet with your heli-ski guide for gear check, briefing, and group selection. Later an avalanche beacon search and safety clinic will be conducted, along with the required helicopter briefing. Welcome dinner at the lodge.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals: Dinner

Day 2 – Sunday
Immediately after breakfast you walk to the heliport only a few paces from your room. Soon we will carve our first turns in the pristine Andes, an unforgettable alpine setting of Himalayan proportions. Each group will have a minimum of 1 heli-ski guide, a 4:1 & 5:1 ratio depending on the number of guests and helicopters used. Today we take it slowly; it will be your first day exposed to the thin air at nearly 15,000 feet elevation in the magnificent surroundings of the dramatic and rugged Central Andes Mountains. At the end of the day it's back to base to a well deserved gourmet dinner at the lodge.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 3 – Monday
After breakfast you will gain altitude as the group becomes more comfortable and familiar with the terrain, as well as more acclimatized to the altitude. There is always the possibility of discovering a new landing zone, or virgin terrain never skied or snowboarded before. It is highly likely that you will have the chance to pioneer a few runs with PSHG, since the terrain is vast and much remains unexplored. Return to base and dinner at the lodge.

Overnight:  Mountain Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 4 – Tuesday
Another exciting day with more runs, powder, and fun! You will continue discovering the Andes and tracking fresh snow. Picnic at mid-day, then continue heli-skiing and/or heli-boarding. By this time the group will be well acclimatized and feeling stronger so your guide(s) may choose to go a bit higher or perhaps move to a different valley, depending on conditions, group strength, and abilities. Return to base for dinner.

Overnight:  Mountain Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 5 – Wednesday
After breakfast you get to repeat your awesome daily heli-ski routine. Or for those who are ready for a break, they can soak at the nearby hot springs, go horseback riding, choose a day of resort skiing, or simply relax at the lodge.

Overnight:  Mountain Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 6 – Thursday
After breakfast you continue with your exciting program; more heli-time, more turns and vertical feet in the majestic Andes Mountains. Return to base for dinner.

Overnight: Mountain Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 7 – Friday
After breakfast you will start your 6th and final day of your heli-ski / heliboard journey in the Andes. After skiing, you pack and Powder South will transfer you to your 5-star hotel in Santiago, for an enjoyable Friday evening in this cosmopolitan city.

Overnight: 5-Star Hotel in Santiago
Meals: Breakfast & Lunch

Day 8 – Saturday
Breakfast and relaxing morning at your hotel. You may choose to continue traveling in Chile and South America, or return home.
