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.

Resorts Visited (4)El Colorado, Valle Nevado, La Parva & Nevados de Chillan

Ability Level (Intermediate to Advanced)This tour is designed for skiers and snowboarders. It is for both those with no experience on ungroomed snow and for those who are experienced fresh snow skiers and riders who want to improve. We will ski terrain and snow that offers the appropriate challenge and opportunities for both levels to improve your off-piste skiing. We will introduce you to powder step by step if inexperienced, and if experienced, challenge you and take you to the best spots.
