More glowing reviews of our South American ski trips will be added soon!
Snoventures have been contributed to or have been featured in the The New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Whitelines Magazine, Fodors Travel Guides, Rough Guides, Snowboarding the World Footprint Guide and more.
In September 2011 Snoventures were chosen by the 'Relentless Energy' crew including Jenny Jones (Aspen X Games number one 3 times) and other top UK riders and skiers to help organise and provide local knowledge for the filming of two short films in the Andes.
All our travel was arranged through a company called Snoventures whose specialist knowledge when it comes to snowboarding in Chile & Argentina is second to none.

Hi ...., Just got back from the States from Chile. I wanted to say thank you for helping Adam and I organize and book our trip. We had a great time and both plan on going back at some point soon.
Got back late last night, I just wanted to let you know my wife and I had a great time in Santiago and Valle Nevado. It was quite beautiful and the hotel was great, so thanks for setting that up. They put us on the 9th floor overlooking the mountain resort, so we had a fantastic room, everyone was friendly and we had a great time. Snow was pretty good, we didn't get a big dump or anything but we did get a few snow days, but not very much probably only about 10cms. Had quite a few sunny bluebird days so we got some good days up on the mountain.

Hi Richard, Iam back in Oz now after the best holliday ever in South America....Portillo has got to be one of the best snow resorts around, what a place..There was enough snow to have fun when we arrived then it started to snow Tuesday night and all Wednesday, woke up to blue sky the next morning and 2 ft of fresh, easily my best ever day snowboarding...The service all over the mountain was excellent and met some awsome people in the Inca..Already thinking about next year, 2 weeks this time...Thanks for your help..Simon.
The past 4 days I've had some of the best skiing of my life!
Thanks for all your help throughout the trip – we had a great time.
We managed to make it back finally despite all the airline delays.
We will definitely recommend your services to anyone we know going on a similar vacation in future.

Just would like to thank you for organizing our holiday and let you know how it went .
Michael and I had the best time- everything went to plan - only one slight hiccup - got pickpocketed in Santiago but learnt our leeson very quickly.
I could not recommend the trip highly enough. As soon as we met Gerry in the reception area we knew it would be good. He has a very warm and had a very professional manner that made me and everybody else feel safe all trip. Our group consisted of three couples and we all got on very well which is a bonus.
The Atacama Desert trip was just as magical with our guide being Pablo who was excellent. The hotel was fabulous and we didn't want to come home.
Both parts of the holiday exceeded our expectations - especially the skiing and can't wait till next year to do it all again.
Once again and cheers to Freddy Flintoff !!!

I never had the opportunity to tell you that we had a great trip, and everything went very smoothly ... Portillo is a beautiful place, but if I go in the future I will definitely stay at least in the Octagon lodge, even though the Inca is a great deal. I will be sure to suggest your services to anybody looking to go to South America to ride. If you need anything like a review or anything I'd be glad to help. Thank you, cheers. Pirouz.

The agent at Snoventures was more than helpful in getting a reservation during one of the busiest weeks of the year at Portillo. He was in constant contact with us up until the trip and as a result we had one of the best weeks of skiing I have ever had, not to mention the rates were extremely fair and competitive!
...Have a good year, and I will definitely contact you next time I head down South. Cheers!
