Ski Arpa in Chile announced yesterday that they would be opening this winter for the first time since 2018. A lack of snow in 2019 and the covid pandemic the last couple of years prevented the area from opening. They even closed early in 2018 due to a lack of snow.

After a lot of uncertainty and hardships over the last few years, we are beyond happy to officially announce that we will open for a shortened season from August 15- September 5. We hope to see you at the most unique skiing experience in South America!

The ski area, around 70miles from Santiago, has 4,000 acres of terrain and 3,500 feet vertical. With no lifts. Or defined runs. Just gnarly, rugged high-alpine terrain and two snowcats.

Ski Arpa, or El Arpa, averages around 200” of fresh snow a year.
