The Puma Lodge is surrounded by the breathtaking mountain landscape of the Andes in a valley to the south of the Maipo Valley, close to the Argentine border. From the lodge, you have access to high-quality terrain to help you realise your heliskiing/snowboarding dreams in small groups.
Beyond Santiago de Chile, thousands of hectares of untouched terrain are waiting for you to carve your tracks. The area covers the Aconcagua, Juncal and Rio Colorado valleys in the north; the Olivares, Parraguirre and Tupungato valleys in the centre; and the Aparejo, Marmolejo, Pangal, Rengo and Tinguiririca valleys in the south. This incredibly large region offers a great selection of perfect heliskiing terrain, from glaciated Andean peaks to steep ridges and gullies, with elevations ranging from 2,500 metres to 4,500 metres. Every descent is enveloped by an awe-inspiring backdrop of 6,700 metres.
The Puma Lodge is stylish and modern – the perfect place to recover after a day’s heliskiing. The 5,500 square metre facilities include: 24 deluxe, spacious rooms, 2 x 6-person apartments, spa, sauna, steam room, jacuzzis and outdoor swimming pool, fully equipped gym, yoga room, climbing wall, games room, well-stocked wine cellar and gourmet restaurant.
Powder South Heli-Ski Guides was founded by two reputable skiing and mountaineering companies and guides in 2002: Rodrigo Mujica (IFMGA / UIAGM Guide) and Joaquin Oyarzun (former Olympic ski racer). Both Rodrigo and Joaquin were born and grew up in Chile and lived for years in the USA (Rodrigo spent two decades in Valdez, Alaska, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming).
