The Vines to Offer Heli-Skiing in The Andes


  The Vines Resort & Spa to offer Heli-Skiing in Andes Mountains


Together with Powder South, The Vines is offering the first ever

 Uco Valley, Argentina heli-skiing experience


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Mendoza, Argentina (May 21, 2015) – This July, The Vines Resort & Spa will debut the first heli-skiing program in Mendoza, Argentina’s Uco Valley. The program is in partnership with Powder South Heli Ski Guides, pioneers of programs throughout the Argentinian and Chilean Andes.


Guests will stay in The Vines’ exclusive, luxury villas surrounded by 1,500 acres of private vineyards with 360-degree views of the Andes. The heli-skiing experience will give guests the opportunity to explore deep powder and virtually new, untouched terrain in the towering Andes mountains, which reach almost 7,000 meters high. Particularly during North America’s summer months, which is prime snow season in the Southern Hemisphere, heli-skiing in the vast, open territory of the Andes provides a feeling of adventure and discovery that can be felt in few other places in the world. Opportunities are available for skiers and snowboarders of varying levels, and guests staying at the resort will be just a short 5-10 minute flight from the terrain.


"The Vines Resort & Spa is the most stunning and luxurious heli-ski lodge on the planet,” said Rodrigo Mujica, Director of Powder South. “The resort’s unbeatable location is the perfect launching pad for our new heli-skiing adventure which will provide guests with access to epic, unexplored terrain and an unmatchable adventure."


The Vines Resort & Spa’s CEO, Michael Evans, added: “For 10 years I’ve looked out at the Andes mountains with awe. We’re excited to embark on this new journey with Powder South, bringing heli-skiing to Mendoza’s Uco Valley. And we look forward to hearing our guests’ tales of adventure in the mountains over a fabulous glass of Argentine wine back at the resort.”


Three-day and weeklong packages including lodging, ski and safety equipment, and world-class guides. Book now for July and August via Powder South.
