Hey all you WildSnowers son Louie and I will be in Chile soon. Louie is flying in a few days for a fairly lengthy stay. I’ll be leaving at the end of this month for a two week visit. I’ll be staying in Chillán (Chile) area; Louie and his friends will be there as well, and also traveling around south.

Since we’ll both be down there I thought I’d hijack a daily blog post so we can request that any local backcountry skiers in southern Chile who’d like to give us contact info. Please do so by leaving a blog comment below with your Facebook page web address or otherwise. Please avoid leaving email addresses in public comments.

If you contact on Facebook please use private messaging rather than public comments.

Below are Louie’s and my Facebook URLs. We’d both love to meet more locals or experienced travelers who can help us find good accommodations, destinations, and partners for backcountry ski tours.

    Currently packing and super excited to get back down south! If anyone is around Bariloche or Chillan (or surrounding areas), I think that is where we are heading first. It would be great to meet up for some turns!

    Fingers crossed for your trip.
