CHARACTERISTICS OF THE DUNE:

Cerro Blanco is one of the most extreme dunes in the world, is 1300 meters above sea level, its summit reaches 2090 meters above sea level and has a vertical drop of 790 meters to descend equivalent to about 1200 to 1300 meters of descent by its inclination of about 38 degrees.

WARNING:

We recommend to the practitioners of this sport that they do not do anything risky in the descent or high-risk maneuvers like in the snow.

Our country, unlike the snow mountains where snowboarding and skiing is practiced, does not have the proper logistics for emergency rescues (such as helicopters and other vehicles for rescue in case of an accident that is normally used immediately in the mountains) where winter sports are practiced), in order to perform a rescue in Cerro Blanco, the reaction will be much slower.

The traveler signs a manifesto of responsibility for his integrity and welfare, our job is to provide, guide and instruct the traveler so that he does not venture to places where the adventure sport is practiced without any previous notion and/or monitoring by people trained in the sandboarding or sandskiing activity.
