Situated 70 miles North of Santiago in the shadow of Mt. Aconcagua, Ski Arpa is a cat skiing operation that emphasizes  “natural snow conditions” as a primary attraction of the area’s skiing experience. With elevations ranging from 8,830 ft at the base up to 12,270 ft up top at Punta Guanaco, Ski Arpa touts 4,000 acres of skiable terrain accessed by two Piston Bully Snow Cats that can carry 22 people each.

With mountains like these and the potential for a relatively unmanicured (maybe untouched) snowpack at Ski Arpa, the conditions for the Freeskiing World Tour stop #2 might just be AMAZING!  Let’s hope this event GOES OFF!!!
