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!
This trip is unique and a ton of fun for a host of reasons: Flying to Osorno Chile is relatively quick and easy. The volcanoes we climb are not exceptionally tall requiring acclimatization, or exceptionally technical to climb. The distance between objectives is minimal. The Chilean seafood, steaks, and wine are world class. And between the mountain huts, hot springs, and the cool towns of Puerto Varas and Pucon the days are a blast no matter what the skiing conditions might be like.
Check out the photos from the trip! and stay tuned for the 2014 dates. Cheers, Rich Meyer
