Incredible Experience

Jeremy12/09/2019
Casa Tours was definitely made my trip unforgettable. Gomez and the guides, Anna and Ro, were super knowledgeable about the terrain and all around nice people. Our tour was originally scheduled to spend a few days around Arpa / Portillo, but due to a lack of snow, Gomez moved that part of our trip down to Chillan. We ended up having fresh snow for the first few days. The mountains were awesome, the people were great and this was one of the most fun vacations I've taken. I would strongly recommend booking with Casa and I plan on coming back soon!

This was a great trip! I researched some other tour options, but am glad I chose this one! Chile was having a difficult snow season, but no worries Gomez was able to adjust the trip on short order to get us into some great conditions. Him and his crew are top notch. They are keyed into the mountains, local culture and businesses so have you covered the whole time. I had a blast with the whole gang; guides and guests. If / when you go spend some time in Santiago.

“Just do it!”

Bob07/09/2019
Skiing in the Andes had been on my “bucket list.” After skiing six days with CASA Tours it’s now on my “how soon can I go back?” list. The above tree line skiing on the slopes of volcanic peaks was great. Lift stats don’t tell the story of these mountains. The lifts are just the gateways to these big, open mountains.

Thanks to Gomez’s deep local knowledge and relationships, the after ski activities and meals were memorable too. Best of all was spending time with the experienced and interesting guides and other guests.

CASA Tours works well for anyone from solid intermediate to serious advanced. Be sure to spend a day or two in Santiago as well.

Our First Trip to Chile

Lynn Reeves07/09/2019
My teenage son and I had a great first trip to Chile with CASA Tours. CASA Tours made an adjustment about 3 weeks before the trip started to a slighly different itinerary to make sure we had the best snow and skiing experience possible. The communication before, during and after the trip has been superb. The lodging and food was local and very comfortable. Staying and eating locally was important to me because while we were focused on skiing, we also wanted to experience Chillean culture. The staff was professional and I appreciated the care and attention to detail everyone with CASA displayed. Thank you for an amazing experience!

Great Trip!!

Great Trip!!

Greg Ehret06/09/2019
I went the first week of August with my brother and my two sons (early college age). It was awesome. It was a real adventure with like minded people. Gomez made the executive decision to pursue some snow further south and it was the perfect pick with fresh powder and bluebird days. I would highly recommend this trip!

Best trip of my life! David really knows how to lead a group to fully learn and embrace a culture in which I had never experienced before. From showing us around the mountains and making the call to switch up locations to the perfect restaurants and pubs to enjoy a post ski meal! Very professional crew and very fun all around!

Memories To Last A Lifetime

Timothy Schroeppel03/09/2019
This was my second CASA trip with my son, and once again we had a blast. It didn't hurt that a major system blew in off the Atlantic two days in. Gomez (owner) and his guides (Ro and Anna) know these mountains well and guided us into some truly epic freshies in open powder fields. They really go out of their way to make sure your experience on, and off, the mountain is fun and positive. They led us to some great spots to enjoy apre and great chilean food. Logistically, everything went smooth. It was stress free, from meeting us at the airport in Santiago and getting us on a connecting flight down to Corralco, to setting us up in a beautiful hotel in Santiago our last night, and getting us to the airport the next day.

Bottom line, CASA will take care of you and maximize your fun as much as possible. Thanks again CASA.

Dave at Casa Tours runs an amazing trip. From the pre planning info to the ski areas we visited to the incredible restaurants we ate at to the markets we perused to the guides that were super helpful, start to finish we had a great time. Dave even made adjustments to the tour at his expense as we went along to make sure we hit the best snow. I highly recommend Casa Tours and the Classic Shortie trip.

Diggin Deep

Jennifer19/08/2019
The worst snow conditions in 20 years and Gomez went above and beyond with a last minute change to our itinerary which with gave us 2 days of glorious uncut powder every run.

Given the conditions we still managed to find an adventure everyday .

Early August 2019

Sabrina17/08/2019
Our group had the misfortune of going during a year where the snow at the scheduled destinations was sub-optimal. However, Gomes saved the trip by changing the destinations so that we were able to ski in locations where there was snow, and we lucked out with the first half of the trip during which we were able to ski fresh powder. Gomes, Ro, and Anna are wonderful and very attentive guides, and they limit the number of trip participants which I think is very important to the enjoyment and fluidity of the trip. I would definitely recommend going with Casas tours if you are planning a trip to Chile.

Awesome Trip!!!

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!

Great trip!

Tom S29/01/2019
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
