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!

Fantastic Adventure

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!

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.

CASA tours looked after our needs perfectly. They arranged for transportation from the airport and a guided tour of Santiago ahead of the official start day of the ski trip. The guides were amazing, super talented and we had a blast and not to forget our experienced driver who was Mr. Professional.

I liked that the tour was a little off the beaten path without the commercialization. CASA tours are committed to supporting the local economy and had the utmost respect for the Chilian people. Felt safe and CASA tours looked after all our needs including translation to English now and then. The accommodations were at small local resorts with great hosts and the food was amazing, a 10 out of 10!

If you didn’t get enough of skiing in Canada this winter, then this trip is a great way to get in a few more days in the July and August!! Highly recommend CASA tours.

Andes Explorer Review

meghan jones18/06/2015
CASA tours Andes Explorer was a great trip. The travel was smooth. From airport pick up to departure the itinerary was well organized. The accommodations were homy and comfortable while providing a great Chilean experience. The resorts and skiing were phenomenal!

The mountain guides were professional, safe, fun, and amazing skiers. They provided wonderful alpine and touring opportunities. The translation services and language tips were very helpful. The company went out of their way to accommodate me for traveling around after our group tour ended.

Off the mountain was fun, interactive and allowed for each traveler to tailor their off mountain experience. Thank You.

Best Way To Experience Chile

Tim Schroeppel18/06/2015
My 14 year old son and I made the trip down to Chile August of last year. The owner of CASA Tours, David Johnson (a.k.a. “Gomez”), has been guiding us around the mountains of Southwest Montana for the past 10 years or so. Based on our personal relationship with him we knew we couldn’t go wrong with CASA Tours and Gomez and his crew did not disappoint.

Upon arriving in Santiago, we were greeted at the airport and they took care of everything from thereon out. Gomez and his crew are a super fun and energetic group that want to make sure everyone in the group has the best experience possible. The accommodations and food were outstanding. Our favorite restaurant was a sushi bar in Santiago (I forget the name). Probably the best sushi I’ve ever sampled.

Oh, and the skiing was pretty epic as well. Gomez and the crew did a great job of grouping everyone based on ability and comfort level. Their vast knowledge of the Chilean terrain will get you to the goods. From Tres Valles just outside of Santiago to Nevados de Chillan further south, we experienced some really outstanding terrain and conditions.

We will book again with CASA Tours when we return to South America in the very near future. Hope this helps anyone contemplating a trip down to the Southern Hemisphere.

Fantastic Father/Son Andes Adventure

Mark Lerch17/06/2015
Our trip with CASA Tours in the Summer of 2014 was very special father/son time together experiencing a unique, fascinating and spectacular part of the world, all while indulging in some fantastic skiing with a fun group of people led by a team of dedicated, caring guides that are clearly experts at what they do and who were determined to make sure we all had a great time - and they succeeded!

Dave "Gomez" Johnson, CASA Tours leader, is incredibly experienced with regard to Andes skiing and culture and planned out our trip perfectly. He also did a great job adapting to weather/conditions challenges to make sure we always had the best possible skiing and made the most of the opportunity to chase the powder wherever it was falling the most. We were led by Gomez and two other guides, Alex Taran and Craig Ross, who were just as wonderful and always made sure we had great fun, food, adventures and, of course, simply fabulous skiing.

We would love to make some turns with them again and share more laughs and would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of skiing in the Andes. Don't go on your own. Go with CASA Tours and you will not regret it!
