WHAT OUR HAPPY GUESTS SAYS


  • Felipe, On our touring day you made the extra effort to make sure I could rent a touring setup in a size that would work for me, going back and forth between a few shops.  Not knowing the area as well, this was a huge help and I probably wouldn't have made it that far without it.  When we got on the hill, you were prepared and knowledgeable right out of the gate.  Your concern for our safety was evident and I never felt that we were in danger while hiking and touring on terrain. Your knowledge of the area and flexibility in your plans made a day of tough weather conditions into a fun adventure to a beautiful hot spring a couple valleys over.  We never felt rushed and we never felt like we were running out of time to get everything in.  You really nailed our touring day to attainably fit our goals.  I would definitely go with you into the back country again as my guide.

  • What an amazing day!  Heli skiing on endless first tracks all the while watching a smoking volcano, Manu and his team bring years of experience to the backcountry to our day.  The helicopter was well maintained and the pilot was able to set us down on high ridgelines.  They kept the operation going quickly with very little wait.  If you want an unforgettable experience, come ski Nevados de Chillan.  If you want a once in a lifetime, add in Heliskiing with BackChillan.

  • Thank you so much for inviting me along on the heli adventure.  It was one of the highlights of my trip.  I'm looking forward to our next meeting.  If you land something in the mountains then please let me know so I can bring some friends.
    Regards Ski Family!

  • Excelentes días en el valle Las Trancas, a los pies del Nevado de Chillán, junto a nuestros amigos de BackChillan conocimos Valle Hermoso, Valle Aguas Calientes y las montañas nevadas de la región del Bio Bio. Lindo Lugar.

  • Thank you for the tour. We had a wonderful time and it was a very special experience to go to Aguas Calientes. We will certainly recommend your touring service to other backcountry skiers.

  • Whether guiding amongst the snowy peaks of Chillán Viejo and Nuevo, spying fresh lines in Valle Hermoso and Aguas Calientes, or sharing the best mountain biking lines in Valle Shangri-La, this core group is the go-to for local knowledge—and even offers one of South America's only AIARE-certified courses.
