UCO Valley Argentina 3-Day Heli Skiing Package

Based out of the most luxury mountain lodging on the planet, The Vines Resort & Spa, this three-day Andes Argentina heli-ski package is made for skiers & snowboarders who want a taste of the best in Argentinian heli skiing and do not have the time to commit to a full heli-week.

On a typical day you can expect from 6 - 14 runs of varying vertical with an average vertical of 10,000 meters per day.

You can book this package as a solo skier/boarder or small group and be grouped with other skiers & boarders to make up groups of 4, or if you have a group of 4 or 8, you will ski/board only with your own group.

Terrain & AbilityBecause PSHG has access to such a huge tenure of terrain, there is something suitable for everyone from strong intermediate skiers & boarders and above. If you are a solo traveler in a group of less than 4, PSHGs will try to match abilities with other solo travelers / smaller groups.


Endless lines of powder...

..for you and your friends to play in...
Portillo
..fresh turns all the way.

Typical Itinerary

Day 1- (arrival day) After landing in Mendoza, Argentina a POWDER SOUTH representative will meet you at the airport and direct you to our 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: The Vines Spa & Resort
Meals: Dinner

Day 2 – Heli Day 1
Immediately after breakfast we walk to the heliport only yards from your room. Soon we will carve our first turns in the pristine Andes in the UCO Valley, 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 we use. 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. Back to base for the night to a well deserved gourmet dinner at the lodge.

Overnight: The Vines Spa & Resort
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 3 – Heli Day 2
After breakfast we gain altitude as we become more comfortable and familiar with the terrain, as well as better 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 us, since the terrain is vast and much remains unexplored. Return to base and dinner at the lodge.

Overnight: The Vines Spa & Resort
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 4 – Heli Day 3
After breakfast we start our 6th and final day of our heli-ski / heliboard journey into the Andes. After skiing, we pack and transfer you to your 5-star hotel in Mendoza, The Mendoza Park Hyatt, for an enjoyable Friday evening in this friendly and fun city.

Overnight: Mendoza Park Hyatt
Meals: Breakfast & Lunch

Day 5 – Saturday
Breakfast and relaxing morning at your hotel. You may choose to continue travelling in Argentina and South America, or return home.

Meals: Breakfast
