Huilo huilo Single spot of summer ski in South America since the closing of Chacaltaya in Bolivia. Ideal for the ski and snowboard freestyle.
The Huilo Huilo reserve stretches sixty thousand hectares, and encompasses the Choshuenco volcano. It also is one of the few places in Chile that can offer year round skiing and snowboarding. There is no ski resort in the sense of lifts and tracked runs; instead this is back country skiing at its finest. The hotel offers personalized transportation and a snow cat to take you up the mountain to the ski area, allowing you to access virgin slopes. Please be aware that this is not for new skiers. You do need some experience and skill to really make the most of this ski trip.
