WHAT OUR HAPPY GUESTS SAYS


  • 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.
  • We had an amazing time.  Manuel and Filipe were beyond super.  Patient with our daughter who is new to back country activities, very encouraging and supportive.  Safety was #1 priority.  Our skinning out of bounds was great.  Our out of bounds skiing was amazing.  Manuel has an amazing  backyard to play in.  Very competent, very strong skiers, worth every penny.  Cant wait to go back.  And the photos are unreal!!!

  • Just wanted to thank you for an excellent few days of touring with the team at BackChillan.  We really enjoyed ourselves, it was the highlight of our entire trip to Chile. You were well prepared, we learned a lot and saw some amazing terrain and Ben is ready for his next ascent.  We felt safe at all times and appreciated your patience as I was behind!

  • Cheers man! So great to meet you, and I hope that we cross paths again someday. That day will go down as the best ski touring day I've ever had.

  • These guys are great. I have no reservations in recommending them. It is 20 years since I did any real touring. I had three days with Felipe and Manuel, introduction to modern (post-telemark) touring gear and off-piste safety, and some fabulous skiing. They impressed me with their concern for safety of guests and themselves, and ensuring that we ski in a party with similar abilities. Pre-tour email exchanges ensured they understood my hopes, to be adventurous but within my fitness levels, it's a long time since I was 24 and "robust". Meeting the day before ensured I understood their offering and they my abilities. I was impressed with their professionalism, their experience, and on top of that they are just really nice people enjoying the snow. I hope to be back next year.
