DETAILS

Have you ever dream to start a early skin with sunrise, get to the top of the mountain, take your crampons off, place your skis or snowboard, glide on perfect spring corn. Then pack, drive 2 hours and be surfing perfect chilean left waves during sunset? Well is possible.

Chile is a narrow country that in barely 2 hours drive covering 100- 150 km you can be in the beach or the mountains. As easy as that.

For the last 20 years we have been running our volcanoes trips along the Andes for some nice backcountry ski touring. We are mountain guides with passion for surfing.

In the last few years our love for surfing have grown and we want to offer today a good combination of skiing and surfing even in the same day!

Remember that South pacific waters are cold so to do this trip you have to be experienced surfer. Wetsuit 5/4 or even 6/4-
