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!

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!

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

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.

This trip was incredible. The guides find the best snow, and the locations and experience is tailored to provide a perfect combination of South America tourism and skiing.

Beyond 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!

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?

Unique and wonderful experience

Sari28/08/2018
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!

Trip of the year!
