Join DreamSki Adventures 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 and ride on active volcanoes and in the high Andes! The temperatures are mild and spring like, while the snow is very dry and playful. It’s sunny and uncrowded, which means plenty of fresh tracks days and days after a snowfall!

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

DreamSki Adventures is the foremost specialist in guided ski holidays in Chile and is able to offer you a great Chilean experience on and off the snow.

You will be in the good hands of experienced, personable instructor-guides who know Chile, the skiing, and the language. You won't need to worry about language or cultural barriers or the challenging logistics of traveling in Latin America. Instead you'll be immersed in a rich culture while discovering and experiencing all that Chile has to offer.

On the slopes you will be offered the option of ski improvement while you discover the slopes of Chile and its abundant fresh tracks. We utilize a “guided instruction” approach that allows you to maximize your time on the slopes, while being coached to allow you to ski better and go places you may not have gone on your own, and improve your powder skiing, all in a fun and safe environment.

You will have the opportunity to receive as much or as little professional instruction (depending on what you personally desire), to allow you to get the most out of the abundant fresh tracks Chile offers.

Ability Level (Strong Intermediate to Strong Advanced)This tour is designed for skiers who are strong on groomed snow and have a little experience off the groomed but are not intimidated by it, even if they feel they cannot ski it well. It is also for the very experienced powder skier comfortable in all snow conditions. We will provide both levels of experience with the appropriate challenge you seek and take you to the best spots for the best snow each day to maximize your off-piste skiing time. Through our “guided-coaching” approach we will help you ski the powder faster and more effortlessly whether an expert or still figuring it out.

All skiing and riding will be chair-lift accessible with possible short 5 minute hikes to access some terrain and more fresh tracks!
