Backcountry Focus South America Skiing Tours:

We base these Chile and Argentina ski vacations at various ski resorts throughout the Andes allowing us to enjoy the local culture, food, and comfortable lodging while having several skiing options to get us into the backcountry. These options include hiking and ski touring. (Heliskiing is also an option on our tours.)
On typical skiing days, our hiking and ski touring can range from 20 minutes, to two hours plus, at altitude. Basing at the local ski resorts throughout Chile and Argentina allows us to be more flexible on days we cannot get into the backcountry due to weather or instability in the snowpack.
Inbounds skiing in Chile or Argentina offers thousands of acres of excellent advanced and expert powder skiing. Our guest tio guide ratio of 8 to 2 allows us to easily accommodate groups with diverse skill levels.
Off - Piste Focus Options:
For those who are not interested in a full blown backcountry skiing experience many of our Backcountry Focus Tours have "Off -Piste Focus Options". Because of our 8 to 2 guest to guide ratio we often divide our skiers in to a backcountry and off-piste group.
Our off piste adventures allow you to ride with your favorite all mountain skis or snowboard set up without having to commit to Alpine Ski Touring equipment. Based at various ski resorts throughout Chile and Argentina, these trips get you to the best ungroomed trails and beyond the ski lifts, venturing out of bounds with our certified backcountry ski guides always thinking of your safety. Our goal is to get you not only to first tracks, but fresh tracks away from the crowds.
