Chillan Backcountry Tour

Ski Chile's Best Off-Piste & Backcountry

Termas de Chillan has some of the best backcountry and off piste options in not only Chile, but all of South America. This is your opportunity to experience this ski and snowboard dream resort first hand with guides that know the ski area inside out.
The skiing includes an 1800m (3300ft) run starting on the rim of a volcanic crater and gliding down its flanks after watching the sunset, to Alaska style faces that lead into natural hot springs.
This is a truly unique 7 day ski and snowboard adventure. Your hotel, the MI lodge (Mission Impossible Lodge) in Las Trancas, specialises in hospitality and is run by skiers and snowboarders who 'live' the Termas de Chillan terrain.
The guides have several years experience of skiing and exploring Termas.
