July 27, 2018 – A special thanks to La Parva Ski resort in Chile for hosting our 2018 ski guides training.
Our backcountry guides team, lead by ACMG ski guide Mo Rasiah spent the day around La Parva practicing mountain rescue skills, avalanche safety, self rescue, and hazard forecasting for our risk management program.
A needed snow storm rolled in early, and by the time we left the resort, there was approximately 4 inches (10 cms) of new snow on the ground and still snowing. The forecast total was 6-8 inches (15-20 cms) before clearing.
PowderQuest’s off piste and backcountry programs kick off this weekend in Chile starting with the popular 7 day Summer Snow Escape tour. the trip is sold out, but it is not too late to join us in August and September. Have a look at our current availability and tour schedule for the 2018 South American ski season.
