What makes us different
At Chilean Heli Ski we recognize the demand for providing high quality skiing experiences to our guests and ensuring optimum conditions for delivering that experience.
As the premium Heli ski provider in South America, Chilean Heli Ski and Puma Lodge proudly bring an entirely new philosophy of Heli ski operations to the Andes. The approach we take in every aspect of our operations is entirely professional and to the highest international standards.
We operate in a vast and very remote wilderness winter environment. Our emphasis is on prudence in all of our actions. We take all Risk Management issues very seriously and we spend a lot of time going over our safety strategies and protocols regularly. Our Mountain and Helicopter safety protocols are issues that we do not cut corners on in any manner at any time!
We employ and work exclusively with Mountain Professionals that are accredited the highest of internationally recognized qualifications and that remain current with those credentials.
We also recognize after a life time of working in the mountains around the world, that the environment is supreme and that the unexpected can and does occasionally happen, even to the most prudent, prepared and informed mountain professionals.
We have provided a brief overview of just some of our Risk Management practices, protocol and philosophies for you to review, that we at Chilean Heli Ski and Puma Lodge take very seriously and distinguishes us as the leading Heli Ski operator in the southern hemisphere.

Our private operating terrain encompasses over 3000 sq km of virgin mountain wilderness. Comprised of 3 separate and unique mountain ranges in the central Andes of Chile, all within a short & comfortable 2,5 hr drive south of the Santiago International airport. …….Which just happens to make this one of the shortest commute time from an international airport to any major Heli ski destination in the world!…..
Here over 50 independent permanent Glaciers reside along side some of the tallest and most dramatic of the mythical Andes peaks. With towering spires and vast apron walls of red and grey granite, most of which have never been climbed, skied or realized by man before.
In fact, the vast Cortaderal range located at the southerly end of our exclusive operating region, has a striking similarity, both in shape, size and features, to the Massive Du Mont Blanc, which shares its boundaries with Italy, Switzerland & France and is the highest mountain in western Europe.
With the Argentine border to the East and the front range of the Cipreses National Park to the West, the Northern and Southern regions of the Puma Lodge district are naturally bound by some of our tallest peaks, reaching 5000m, magnificent rivers as well as by the longest of our glaciers, some 13kms in length and dropping over 2300 vertical meters.
