About


General

We offer week-long and three-day packages full of serious adventure, a wide variety of terrain (including couloirs, long ramps, and wide open powder fields), and incredible food and culture. Our location in the Southern Hemisphere enables us to offer alternate season heli-skiing during the Northern Hemisphere summer.

We have explored and skied the Andes Mountains for over three decades, establishing a strong presence and reputation in the ski and high-altitude mountaineering industry. We bring a unique combination of experience and innovation in mountaineering and ski mountaineering in the Andes to our heli-ski operation.

The owners

POWDER SOUTH HELI-SKI GUIDES was founded by a pair of noted ski and mountaineering entrepreneurs and guides: Rodrigo Mujica (IFMGA/UIAGM Guide) and Joaquin Oyarzun (former Olympic Skier). Both Rodrigo and Joaquin were born and raised in Chile and lived for years in the United States (Rodrigo spent two decades in Valdez, Alaska, and Jackson Hole, Wyoming). They have dedicated their lives to mountain life and to excellence in mountain guiding and adventure travel, which is why you will find no better or more professional heli-ski operation in South America than POWDER SOUTH.
