First trip with CASA and first trip skiing in South America. Had a blast and will definitely be back. Just the right balance of on-piste/off-piste skiing...big resort/small resort...great food...great accommodations...great crew...Dave “Gomez” Johnson is the best!!!

Another great CASA trip!

Another great CASA trip!

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!

A Great Experience!!
