Will you try this journey of ski-touring in Chile ?

Chile, on the west coast of South America, is a charming and welcoming country along the Pacific ocean. Surprising with beautiful landscapes and incredible sceneries like in the “Normand Switzerland” of Osorno or Chillan in the 10th/9th regions, 700 kms south of Santiago. From the dry and cold chilo-bolivian red altitude desert of Atacama (where is located Ojos Del Salado), to the south subpolar Patagonian glaciers close to Cap Horn : Chile is a mosaic of different places. Chillan and Curacautin/Malacahuello volcanoes are great steps in this journey. We will ski on these white “Fuji-Yama” above deep forests of pines, cedras and typical Araucarias trees. Very good lodges, excellent food and accommodations (much better than anywhere else in South America). And often wonderful powder skiing!
