Chile Ski Tours

Join us in Chile this summer for an amazing ski adventure, discovering a new country and culture with amazing skiing unlike anything in Europe or North America where you ski on active volcanoes and in the high Andes at over 12,000ft! The temperatures are mild and spring like, while the snow is dry and playful. It’s sunny and uncrowded which means plenty of fresh tracks days and days after a snowfall!

Chile is a summer holiday where the snow only exists at the ski hill. When away from the hill you will be in Chile’s Central Valley wine tasting, touring vineyards, exploring historical sites, discovering traditional outdoor markets, sampling Chilean cuisine, and enjoying Latin American music and dance!
