Ultimate Ski Arpa Experience

You just can't go past a day or more of skiing with the "best value cat ski operation in the world!" You can either add a Ski Arpa tour to other packages or you can make this the main focus of your Chile ski adventure. Experience not only the fabulous skiing offered by El Arpa but some authentic Chilean accommodations, tasty local wines & cuisine, and wonderful hospitality.

See more information about Ski Arpa here>>

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.


Day 1 (Arrival & transfer to Los Andes)
Your Upscape representative will meet you at Santiago’s International Airport or your Santiago hotel to transport you into the Andes Mountains, 108 km (75 miles) northeast of Santiago, for your amazing adventure at Ski Arpa.

Day 2 (Full day of snowcat skiing)
After a hearty breakfast & transfer from Los Andes, you’ll spend the day on the slopes, shredding thousands of vertical feet of incredible virgin snow at elevations of 2,700 – 3,730 m (9,000 – 12,000 ft). With clear views to Mt Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Americas – and the Pacific Ocean, this is sure to be one of the most unforgettable ski experiences of your life.

Day 3 (Full day of cat skiing & transfer to Santiago)
Another full day of ripping up the terrain at Ski Arpa before your transfer back to Santiago or Santiago International Airport for your journey home or onwards.
