Chile Powder: Summer Heli Skiing in Chile With Pure Powder

Pure Powder Announces a US$500 Credit for Any Chile Heli Skiing Trips Booked by 1st June

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - With summer taking hold in Europe, it's time to get those skis out of storage and head south to experience Heli Skiing In Chile – the best powder skiing in the Southern Hemisphere – and take advantage of Pure Powder's $500 credit for all Chile bookings made by the 1st June.

With access to huge amounts of rugged terrain, breathtaking scenery and incredible powder snow, heli skiing in Chile is a totally unique skiing and cultural experience.

Pure Powder, the UK's leading heli skiing specialist with over 30 years of experience, is delighted to work with Powder South, the premier heli ski operator in South America.

Powder South is a professional company run by experienced mountain guides, which can boast over six seasons of successful operation. The heli skiing takes place in one million acres of exclusive terrain in the heart of the Chilean Andes and benefits from fantastic amounts of light powder due to the high altitude maritime snow pack.

This is the ultimate in remote, wilderness explorative skiing and suited to experienced heli skiers with a sense of adventure. Guests ski in small groups of 4 with one guide and there is a maximum of only 12 guests on any trip. Given the remote nature of the operation it is not uncommon to be exploring new areas, experiencing first descents and naming new runs!

Charlie Brooksbank, Director at Pure Powder, commented "Heli Skiing in Chile with Powder South is a truly magical experience. Not only is there a vast wilderness of glorious un-touched powder to be skied, but guests will also be blown away by the unique Chilean culture."

Powder South offers a choice of two heli-ski bases including Lodge Andino, which is a stunning family run Chilean 'hacienda' located in the Maipo valley which offers delicious traditional Chilean food and first-class boutique accommodation. Alternatively, for a uniquely cosmopolitan heli-ski experience, stay at one of Santiago's premier hotels such as the 'W' Hotel or the Ritz Carlton. Enjoy the delights of downtown Santiago during the evenings, with the powder skiing wilderness a 20 minute heli flight away.
