Stoking the fire in our cabin

Chile ski mountaineering wrap-up from 2013:

The Lake District of Chile treated us to some unbelievable weather this year. Sept. is springtime in Chile and we were fortunate to have multiple sunny days with killer corn skiing! We got in six days of skiing, (out of eight total in country), and found ourselves summiting three out of four different volcanoes. Earning our turns on the mountain by day, and enjoying local hot springs or a classic Chilean “Asado” by night. Our small group of backcountry skiers climbed and skied Casablanca, Puyehue, Osorno, and Villarrica, volcanoes this year! Raising the bar for next year’s guests!

Thanks so much for showing me such a great time, keeping me safe, and steering me to the best snow in South America! -Andree Falls, NASTC Ski trip, Portillo, Chile

Rich was one of my guides on Mt Rainier summit in July of 2008. It was my first climb and I had some anxieties. I could tell after just the first few minutes that I was in good hands. - Kate M.

We had an awesome two days; couldn't ask for a better guide!"
