As we work through the unprecedented challenges surrounding COVID-19, we are so thankful you are with us and appreciate that you’ve chosen to trust PowderQuest for your snow adventures.
Currently, all guided trips listed on our calendar page from July forward are scheduled to run as planned.
We will reassess on April 20 (3 months before our 1st departure) and provide updates here, via our monthly newsletter, and direct email to our trip guests.
Please note that due to circumstances beyond our control we have paused our “Guaranteed Departure” policy until further notice. All other policies remain in place including our Risk Free Booking Window and Lifetime Deposits. Learn more.
Travel should be enriching and an opportunity to escape anxiety, not create it. We pledge to work with you should situations to change or cancel arise.
Guests Currently Booked
For guests currently booked with us, we encourage you to hold off before making any rushed decisions. We still have plenty of time. However if you would like to make changes or discuss further, please let us know. We are here to help.
Those Considering Booking a Trip
For those considering a trip with us we encourage you to go ahead and book. We have a risk free booking window and pledge to work with you should you decide to cancel or change plans at a later date. Please reach out to us with any questions.
Situations We Are Monitoring
Both Chile and Argentina have new travel restrictions in place to help reduce further spread in each country. We expect these to be lifted sometime in May, however as this is an unprecedented global event, no one currently knows for sure. We hope to provide more info with our April 20th update.
We encourage you to hold off on booking flights until we have additional details in April. If you prefer to book your flight now, check with your airline regarding flexibility and your Travel Insurance provider to see what is covered. In addition, many guests opt to book “Cancel For Any Reason” Travel Insurance. More on this here.
Important links related to COVID-19
Over our 2 decades in operation we have faced 9-11, SARS, global recessions, Swine flu, Zika, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. COVD-19 will pass, we will come out stronger as a company and look forward to sharing our future adventures together.
For now, stay safe, make intelligent decisions by gathering information from trusted sources (not Facebook and Twitter) and reach out to us with any questions.
The sun will shine on us all again,
