Ski tour Chile for beginners.
Imagine – Having the confidence to go exactly where you want to go at the speed you choose to go at. To be able to slow down or speed up at will, control your descent on ice, control your speed on steeper terrain, know how to cope with a fresh fall of snow, handle crowded slopes and narrow paths. Imagine how liberating it would be to move around the mountain knowing you can cope with anything that comes your way… Well it doesn’t have to be a dream. You can learn to move all over the mountain in control with confidence.
You can learn all the skills and movements needed to ski the mountain in an environment where you can really concentrate on developing your technique. Most skiers have developed a set way of skiing. You can spot them on the slopes using a similar pattern of movements all the time. It’s their ‘Technique’.
At Amity Tours we’ve learned to develop skiing differently, thanks to the European Skiing Company “Snoworks”. Their directors Phil Smith and Emma Carrick-Anderson, a former Olympic Ski Racer are our masters.
- Firstly we focus on developing every movement around every joint. Similar to the way a child would learn to walk, run and play.
- Then we help you to learn to vary all the movements.
- Then we help you to learn to blend them, adjust them and apply them.
Result – no habits, no set technique – just the ability to move freely, adjust and apply your movements accordingly and naturally in any snow texture and terrain anywhere on the mountain.
We’re not saying it’s easy; it’s taken us a long time to be able to move freely and adjust our movements in a totally versatile manner with no fixed habits. But the result is we can ski in any snow texture in any terrain at any speed anywhere on the mountain.

+ MORE INFO
Skiing, and hot springs.
EASY: You are a cautious intermediate skier. You’ve mastered the “blues” and can ski them at a reasonable speed. But when those “reds” get steep, awkward or icy – oops get me out of here! The best ski tours for you are the Piste Performance. Don’t worry if you are unsure of your exact level. A rough guess is good enough. We sort it all out in the resort on the first evening when you arrive.
No extra equipment is required for this trip other than your normal skiing equipment. If you intend to take the options of getting to the top of the volcanoes then we recommend you bring ski touring equipment (skis with touring bindings, skins, and ski crampons). These can be hired before travel if required, no previous ski touring experience is required. Off-piste safety equipment (transceiver, shovel, probe) will be provided if necessary. A backpack with carrying straps for skis is essential. Don’t forget your camera!
We highly advice clients should bring their own ski wear (pants and jacket), goggles or sun glasses, woolen cap and gloves.
◦ Sunglasses for the sun, goggles for the shade/cloud
◦ Don’t wear a cotton base layer or you’ll get cold
◦ Have a thermal base layer next to your skin.
◦ Use layers of clothes, not big jumpers – it keeps you much warmer
◦ Only wear one pair of socks – more will actually make your feet colder
◦ Make sure your outside layer is waterproof, especially your bottom half
◦ Make sure you have lots of pocket space
◦ You can take off layers when you get hot and carry extra ones in case the temperature drops.
◦ Protect your skin – from the sun, wind and cold. Snow reflects the suns rays, which is great for tanning but you don’t feel its power so pack plenty of sun cream. Some sun cream also coats your skin in a protective layer which stops wind and cold burn too.

Any policy you purchase should, at the very least, cover trip cancellation, loss of baggage, accident/life coverage, travel delays, and non-refundable airline tickets. Carriers for travel insurance include World Nomads, Travel Guard and Travelex. You may also consider insurance that covers emergency medical evacuation. Search the web to find the best deal that suits your needs- read the fine print.
There is nothing to be worrying about altitude sickness. We will never get higher than 8,000 feet / 2,300 meters
In Chile, the local currency is called “Peso”.
The current exchange rate is $1 USD = $650 Chilean Pesos (CLP).
Travel checks are not convenient because only few places accept them and the exchange rate is 10% lower than dollar bills. Most credit cards are accepted at shops, restaurants and hotels. The most common cards are Master Card, Visa and Dinners Club. American Express is less commonly accepted that the others. There is no need to bring a large amount of cash; there are ATMs almost everywhere we go on the tour. The maximum amount of money that you can withdraw per day is equivalent to $300.000 CLP.
