Description

Experience the beauty and adventure of the Andes Mountains on this full-day ski adventure. Whether you are an advanced skier or beginner, this tour is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the mountains and experience some of the best skiing South America has to offer. Local Guide Gabriel, a skier himself, will pick you up, bright and early, and drive you to Valle Nevado, one of Chile’s most famous ski resorts. As an experienced driver, he will navigate the winding road with professionalism and safety, allowing you to make it to the mountain in a stress-free way.

Along the way to the mountain, you will also get to stop at a rental shop to pick up any supplies you may need. Once at Valle Nevado, you will be free to enjoy the biggest ski center in all of South America. Then, if you wish, you can visit a second ski center with Gabriel. Along the way to this stop you will get to enjoy a warm hot chocolate and a tasty pastry. The powdery snow of the Andes, the scenic landscape unlike any other, and the mild weather all make for incredible skiing conditions that are ideal for both beginners and advanced skiers.

Gabriel

My dad is Chilean and my mom is Brazilian, yet I grew up all over South America. As the child of missionaries, I spent much of my childhood living in a motorhome, moving around different countries in the region. Growing up in this unique way, I was lucky to learn about all the interesting cultures in the region, to see the beauty and diversity, to meet interesting people from all walks of life, and, of course, to have many adventures! As an adult, I realized that, for me, the best way to continue to explore new cultures and meet new people would be through tourism. After years of working in Chilean tourism, I decided I wanted to start my own business so that I could really give my clients a more personalized and authentic view of my home country. For me, hosting a tour shouldn’t be a job; it should be like you are caring for a good friend. That’s how I approach every single one of my tours, as if I am showing a friend around my home!
