Ski Arpa: Snowcat skiing/riding in Chile
Ski Arpa is a unique backcountry snow cat operation located in the remote Valle el Arpa in the Chilean Andes.
While there are no lodging accommodations at the Ski Cat operation, we offer lodging packages in the nearby towns of Los Andes and San Felipe.
Skiers and Riders can choose from single day cat skiing to multi day packages with lodging, transportation and meals.
Also available are trip extensions to thermal hot springs and/or wineries in the Aconcagua Valley and day trips to the Portillo ski resort.
Not only will you spend your days carving turns in deep powder, but also you’ll immerse yourself in Chilean culture, experiencing regional cuisine and characteristic Chilean hospitality.
Ski Arpa multi day packages include lodging options with several preferred partners, offering accommodations to suit your individual needs and budget.
A place unlike any other in the world, Valle el Arpa is sweet music to the skier's soul. Unparalleled snow conditions and views of Mt. Aconcagua make for an unforgettable adventure. In an anything-but-typical day, you’ll ski over 13,000 vertical feet of some of the best untracked powder in the world. Intermediate or advanced level of skiing experience required. Ski Arpa is the only full cat-skiing operation in all of South America.
Full day cat trips start at $245.00 per person per day and 2 night/2 day ski packages start at $1,015.00 per person based on double occupancy.
