DIFFICULTY

Intermediate: You are an adventurous intermediate skier. You can ski “reds” at a good pace whatever the conditions and “easy blacks”. Difficult “blacks”, bumps or going off-piste, hmm, definitely need some work! The best ski tours for you are the All Terrain, in which we go to ski resorts and you can opt to go off-piste or stay on-piste. You will enjoy the backcountry but with the peace of mind that you are within a patrolled ski resort.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.

EQUIPMENT REQUIRED

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.

ITINERARY MODIFICATIONS

Slight itinerary modifications might occur due to weather and or road conditions, or force majeure.

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.

CURRENCY

In Chile, the local currency is called peso.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 $200.000 CLP.
