South America Adventure

Ski multiple resorts, volcanoes and two countries

In 2003 we headed for South America and since then we have created and fine tuned one of the most diverse ski adventures you will find anywhere in the world.

Ski South America is a no holds barred ski extravaganza combining amazing skiing experiences, spectacular southern hemisphere winter scenery with extraordinary local culture – skiing Chilean and Argentinian ski resorts in the Lakes and Volcanos District and staying in some extraordinary places.

We’ve created an itinerary to cater for a difference in skill level and aspirations. At most  destinations you have the option of skiing on or off-piste accessed by mechanical uplift wherever possible, as well as the option of skinning, climbing and skiing from the summit of volcanoes. In Huilo Huilo in Chile there are only off-piste options. This itinerary is ideally suited for those with off-piste aspirations.

DATES COMING FOR 2019

Instruction / Guiding / Hosting
A Snoworks instructor will host the trip along with our local Chilean hosts from Amity Tours who also provide the local mountain guide, Guido and with whom we will organise the on-snow schedule. Groups will vary depending on the resort, the objectives of each day and the prevailing weather conditions.

On our Adventure trips, off-piste instruction to develop performance is balanced with off-piste experiences, with our instructor working more in a ‘coaching role’. On some days the instructor may organise sessions aimed at developing off-piste performance, on others the Snoworks instructor will be organising ascents of the volcanoes or searching out the best off-piste skiing accessed by mechanical uplift. Ensuring you have the best experience possible (and the safest) is always their top priority.

For experienced off-piste skiers this is an amazing experience. Armed with ski touring equipment you will have the opportunity to summit and ski from the top of multiple volcanoes. The experience will remain with you for a liftetime.
