Destination Profile – Chile Heli Skiing

Posted on June 30, 2011 by Hayley

Heliski ChileWhat’s the draw of skiing when everyone else is surfing this summer? Skiing in South America and particularly in Chile is an amazing experience, especially when you combine it with the rich Chilean hospitality and culture. Also, not to mention the wonderful wines which are famous from this region!

Total Heliski works with South America’s premier heliski operator based in the heart of the central Andes in Chile. This means that every detail of your heliski holiday down under will deliver you an exhilarating experience second to none. Because they operate in the Northern Hemisphere summer, they are fortunate to be able to secure the best guides and heliski pilots from around the world during their ‘off season’. They use Swiss pilots who are the highest trained professionals in the industry, as well as a combination of European and Canadian heliski guides. The owner-guides also have vast skiing experience of the area.

They operate with the latest professional Heliskiing equipment. You will be heli skiing in Total  Heliski’s  preferred ‘small group style’ in either their Eccuriel AS 350-B3 or Bell 407 helicopters, equipped with safety gear such as GPS, satellite phone, VHF radio and avalanche rescue equipment. And each client benefits from having their own ABS airbag system included in the price, in addition to the standard transceivers, probe and shovel. This leaves you with the peace of mind to enjoy your day in the incredible virgin powder!

After a long, yet thrilling day of skiing, you will want to come back to your mountain lodge accommodation and relax. This mountain lodge has a character all of its own. Situated within 5 minutes of the South American continent’s best heli-skiing, lodge keeper, Carlitos, welcomes returning heliski groups with your apres-ski shoes in a wheelbarrel to change into as soon as you land, homemade pastries, and ice cream of all flavours .

Treat yourself to a massage after skiing, or read a book in front of the open fireplace while served delicious appetizers prepared daily by their Chef. Or just chill in the outdoor hot tub and swimming pool.
