Another great CASA trip!

Phil Kopp30/01/2019
This was my third trip w/CASA, Chile summer 2016, Japan winter 2017. They're always delivering safe and fun sliding through their knowledge of the local terrain and current conditions. 9/18 was a snow challenged month in the Bariloche area. Thanks to our guides, we had fun skiing high at Cerro Catedral even though we had to download the bottom quarter of the mountain. They determined Cerro Bayo wasn't worth going to while we were there and substituted a nice hike through a local forested drainage area w/a stop at van driver Gonzo's town's favorite watering hole. Our day snowcat skiing was a highlight! La Hoya was a delightful trip back to mom and pop ski areas and Gomez and his Argentine guide staff knew where the goods were to traverse or easy hike to there. CASA has excellent drivers and vans for the road trip portions of their tours in all 3 of the countries I've visited w/them. Owner Dave Johnson (Gomez) has been in the area often enough to steer us to the good restaurants, artisan craft brewpubs, and lodgings. He's always delivered good value to me and my ski buddies.

Great trip!

I repeated this tour September 2019, 10 years after the first time I went on it. It was better than I remembered! I was excited to return to La Hoya, and I'm glad I did. The terrain is great. We had even better conditions than the last time we went. Gomez has extensive knowledge of the terrain and we kept hitting great lines, a few I've never run before. Beyond that, they added a cat day at Baguales to the trip. Wow! What an impressive place. I def need another crack at it. And we had a powder day at Cathedral.. what more can you ask for?
The hotel we stayed in at Bariloche was right on the lake with great views too! Nice accommodations.
Highly recommend!

Classic Shortie Chile August 2018

Paul Abel16/11/2018
Had a great time in Chile with all the guest. Even though I did not know half the group that we joined up with everyone got along great. We all had a passion for skiing or riding. Gomez and the guides were first rate in their abilities. Even though conditions were not the greatest they managed to find the right places to get the group to untouched terrain. Gomez and the guides were able to determine what we were capable of skiing and it seemed like there was never any stress of being over our head. Cannot stress how great Gomez and the guides were!

Awesome Adventure

Brett Hanna16/11/2018
My kids and I talked about summer skiing in Chile for years before we finally headed south. The CASA Tours team's hard work made the trip all that we hoped it would be and more. Our adventure began with Gomez, Anna, Ro and Marcello as our diligent able guides and ended with them as our true friends and travel companions. From forgotten boots to "tragic accidents" on the Roca Jack lift at Portillo, team CASA Tours was always there to smooth over all the potential bumps in the road. Anyone considering an adventure ski vacation should do themselves a favor, book with CASA Tours and prepare for a trip that exceeds their expectations.

Brian Unterman16/11/2018
My son and I traveled with Gomez and his guides this past summer to Chile. The entire trip was beyond our expectations. The organization of the trip and accommodations were great and we loved the Powder Lodge especially. The guides always found great lines and they were top notch in all respects! Not only was the skiing an adventure but we visited really cool places and the dinner spots were great as well. The entire group our week was super energetic and fun and the guides added to this as well. I would recommend Casa for any of their tours and hope to return on another adventure with them. My son had the trip of a lifetime as well and continues to talk about it. Thank you.

CASA Tours - August 2018 was incredible!

John Denison15/11/2018
CASA Tours was one of the best decisions I ever made. We skid Arpa, which only a few humans on earth can say they have done, on a two day CAT adventure. There were only 11 of us on the entire mountain and we did untouched bowls with condors flying above us. One day our CAT had to slow down because a family of llamas was in our path! And all without another person for miles. Then we hit El Colorado and La Parva over the next three days. It was great to see the resorts and even better to put the skis on our back and bootpack waaay out of bounds and drop in at 13,000 feet. My last day at Parva, after an hour and a half hike and dropping into an untouched bowl way above where the chairlifts stopped was one of the most intense runs of my life. The guides were extremely helpful. I would not have called myself an expert skier (and i probably still wouldn't) and our guides helped my find less challenging runs at the beginning of the trip while the more advanced folks went big. After I started to get my bearings, thanks to some coaching by the team and my fellow vacationers, I was doing the biggest runs the mountains had to offer. I went in to the trip solo and CASA did such a great job planning dinners and activities and we all left, after a week, like family. They also give you the freedom to explore the local areas and a few of us had some late nights in Santiago which was a blast. I strongly recommend their service as Gomez and the gang are working non-stop to make everyone's trip memorable. The little things go a long way too, like someone being there to pick you up from the airport and transportation back for your outbound. Super helpful. Best skiing of my life!

Casa Tours - Endless Winter

Boris23/09/2018
Our guides, Rodrigo, Alex, Anna and the driver Marcelo, were beyond reproach. Very professional and accommodating, both on the mountain and off the mountain. The trip was well organized and the provided dinners were very good. Lodging can be improved. The first hotel (cabins) had a tricky on demand hot water heater that made it difficult to get a shower. The second hotel was replaced after one of the guests complained and the replacement was much better, with indoor hot pool. Overall, despite those minor accommodations issues it was a good trip.

Incredible Trip

Scott Rice14/09/2018
I have been on many ski trips my life including some cat and heliskiing trips and Gomez's crew is the best I have ever had. We had a lot of different desires in the group and they managed to accommodate everyone. We had variable conditions from three days of great powder skiing to some NewEngland slop at the end but we had a great time anyway. For the first three days they managed to find fresh tracks most every run for those that wanted it. Food was great all week and accommodations were ok. I like the way he has the trip planned with more local lodging and restaurants so you can get involved with the culture as well, instead of being insulated in a sterile resort. Already thinking of my next trip with Casa. Japan?

The best part was that our guides were able to find fresh tracks 3 days after it had snowed.It was a great adventure and Casa tours took all the hard work away. All we had to do was have fun!

We had a really fantastic time on this trip. We got to experience places we never would have been able to go on our own. The guides were extremely experienced and familiar with the language, culture, and most importantly, the mountains. This is an extraordinary trip in one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. Highly recommended!

The Casa Tours Andes Explorer was an amazing 11 day trip. We covered so many different places and got to see a significant part of the country. Gomez and all of the guides were amazing and we would love to go back.

We have write ups on all of the days we spent on the Andes Explorer trip on our blog at powder-pursuit.com. Check them out, leave a comment, and learn/see how much fun this trip is.

Casa Tours is the best

Mark Williamson14/08/2018
I have now gone on 4 tours with Casa Tours. I just returned from the Classic Shortie in Chile. The Owner of the company, David (Gomez) Johnson is extremely hands on with each and every tour and committed to making sure each customer gets the Chilean ski experience they are looking for. The extra activities - meals, winery visits and selection of terrific accommodations really round out the trip. This adventure wouldn't be what it is without David, his guides, and the other guests in search of the same types of adventures as I have been. Our trip had a range of ages from older (me at 51) to a number of twenty somethings and few forty somethings. I was really fortunate to have such a great mix of skiers and personalities but I say that after every trip.

While not inexpensive I believe this tour is a great value. I will be going again in the future and would HIGHLY recommend Casa to anyone looking for a South American ski adventure.

Great tour, great snow, beautiful country

Eric30/12/2017
This was my first trip with Casa Tours, and was a blast. Gomez, who runs Casa, does a great job of adding a personal touch to everything from the lodging, to restaurants, and of course the skiing. We got a really authentic experience at places the average tourist would never think to go, and excellent and professional guiding on the mountains.

The trip was in mid-August and we got great snow conditions, thanks to flexibility in planning where we went for which days. Cat skiing at Arpa made the trip to Chile worth it on it's own! Along with Gomez, we also had 2 other world-class guides which kept the guide-guest ratio somewhere around 3 and allowed us to get exactly what we wanted out of the trip. Such a low ratio seems pretty unheard of elsewhere!

Overall a great trip, and would have no hesitations recommending Casa to anyone interested in a great skiing/snowboarding trip.
