Chile Powder Session at Nevados de Chillan with The Adventure Project

Jacques Goulet09/09/2017
I can't say enough about the Adventure Project team and the amazing trip they put together in Chile for august 2017.
The trip exceeded my expectations in every aspect - the lodging, the food, the transportation, the resort and the quality of the snowboarding & skiing and especially the team.
This was my first trip with the Adventure Project but not my last! I'm already signed up for their Japan session for February 2018.
Fantastic backcountry touring trip to Nevados De Chillan! Super impressed by Matt and his guides' professionalism; dedication to researching weather, snow conditions, the best lines; commitment to client satisfaction; memorable photography; and rapport with the locals.
BE READY TO BREAK YOUR FUN METER ����

Special thanks go out especially to Matt, Francisco, Jaime and Bárbara!

Los veré muy pronto mis amigos!!! �

Amazing trip to Chile

Richard07/09/2017
I had a great time skiing in Chile with Matt. The resort is ideal for easily accessed side-country skiing with very little to no competition for fresh tracks. Matt brings great knowledge and professionalism combined with a sense of humor and passion for finding the best lines to ski. The accommodation is modern and comfortable and the food is easily some of the best in town. All these factors combine to make for a really enjoyable trip and I strongly intend to return next year.

Sessioning the Sidecountry with The Adventure Project

Paul B Chiavini28/05/2017
This experience with The Adventure Project ranks up there on my ski trips worldwide. Matt Appleford arranged a wonderful trip that incorporated resort and sidecountry seamlessly. The accommodations were great, as was the food. My only reason for 4 stars on the lodging is that the hot-tub was an extra charge and had to be "arranged"---I believe brought up to temp) which, frankly, I was just too tired to do after skiing all that powder. The room was great, the bed comfortable, the host Francisco, charming.
Matt has a great sense of how to balance fun, exciting skiing with a professional's view to your safety. I intend to go with Matt to Japan and experience that country next. All in all, I recommend this trip and Matt Appleford without reservation. Here are some excerpts from Facebook posts I did: "Matt Appleford and I hiked off the top of the Otto chair and then skinned into a huge series of bowls below the volcano where we came upon this strikingly situated shrine. Though it lacked a sign describing its dedication, and its intent beyond worship shall remain a mystery, it was a solemn and serious place to appreciate the moment and to contemplate our mortality. And yes--afterwards the skiing was fun! In the evening we had a great meal at the Cabanas Los Hualles (our hotel) and a wonderful bottle of wine provided by the winery we will visit on Thursday near Chillan with Francisco J Penafiel , our gracious host (and owner of Cabanas Los Hualles) , who has made all the arrangements...Amazing bluebird powder day at Nevados de Chillan with Matt Appleford. We got up early , got there early, and it all paid off. We were first in line for the Otto chair, a relic of a lift that takes 22 minutes from mid-mountain to get to the top. I estimate the temperature at around 20°F, with a little fresh overnight. Matt and Francisco, our local guide and the owner of our hotel, Cabanas Los Hualles , led some great lines..."
