  • I couldn’t have asked for a better group or a better place for my first snow-stop in Chile, and I left them sad to say goodbye but having re-found my happy, and excited about the adventures ahead.

  • 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.

  • BackChillan seems to be putting in a lot of hard work.  They are trying to help people learn the sport properly and focus on safety.

  • 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!
