UPSCAPE DEPARTURE: SKI IN WINE OUT

The Ski-In Wine-Out (ski + wine) trip, an Upscape exclusive, combines breathtaking descents at the best ski destinations in the Chilean Andes with personally guided tastings of top notch, innovative wines led by your host, Derek Mossman, the co-founder of MOVI (Movement for Independent Vintners), leading boutique wine producer of Garage Wine Co., and former Portillo ski instructor. You will stay in the chic, intimate settings of small hotels, lodges and haciendas, and sample the finest Chilean cuisine from home-cooked classics to avant-garde dining. You’ll go Cat skiing at Ski Arpa, attend private tours of outstanding wineries both established and off the beaten track.

Everything You Need to Know About Cat Skiing

If you’re looking to shred untouched powder, join us on a Cat skiing adventure at Ski Arpa. Rather than using a helicopter or chair lift, avid skiers can embark on a journey up the mountain using a snowcat. Cat skiing is perfect for those of you who crave deep, dry powder.

This exciting trip allows you to get away from the crowd at ski resorts and have more time to ski on pristine mountains. Snowcats have also been making major advancements over the years, accommodating skiers with heating and cooling systems, large windows overlooking picturesque views, and even sound entertainment. While many believe Cat skiing is only for experts, the powdery terrain is quite perfect for  intermediate powder skiers.

Ski Arpa: Renowned Skiing in Chile

Recognized globally as one of the leading Cat skiing locations in the industry, Ski Arpa is situated in Valle El Arpa, just beneath Mt. Aconcagua which is the second highest mountain peak in the world. From remarkable views of Mt. Aconcagua to skiing down untouched powder, Ski Arpa is truly a unique experience.
