Just came back Ski Arpa and had a great first snowcat ski experience with exceptional guides. The mountain is beautiful, the terrain is great, and the runs are long (ours were 2000 to 3000+ feet). Our guides Jimmy and JB are very knowledge and passionate,...More

I skied Arpa for two days near the end of its brief 2015 season (under a month in total, I believe). The past few years have been very unreliable for skiing in Chile (in 2014, Arpa opened for under 2 weeks) and at the end...More

Ok I get it. If there's no snow then the best of ski areas fails to excite you particularly if you've travelled thousands of kilometres for the back country thrill. We booked two days and didn't bother returning for the second day because the snow...More

I just returned from Ski Arpa and it was an amazing experience! It had snowed a couple of days before (85cm) and the conditions were superb. The snow was silky and soft and just awesome. We went in the smaller of the 2 CATs and...More

Having skied four continents and over a dozen states and provinces via lift, AT skis, snowmobile, snowcat, and helicopter, and as a skier that averages over 50 days a year, I'm asking you to believe that Ski Arpa is among the world's finest ski experiences....More

I hate to give my first cat-skiing experience a poor review but I feel it's important to be honest. I booked a trip with Santiago Aventures to have a variety of snowboarding in Chile since I probably won't be able to go back. I was...More

I have done a lot of backcountry skiing in the Alps and Rockies and decided on a trip down to Chile. Cat skiing at El Arpa was at the top of our list, and we hit it perfectly after a good storm. Beautiful, untouched terrain...More
