Ski Magazine Says
"One of the most intriguing camps for adults is the Andes Freeride Camp at Valle Nevado, Chile. Director David Owen and his crew will structure the camp according to the wishes of their clients, but here's the clincher: With a strong dollar, helicopter skiing only adds about $300 per day to the program. That opens up 25,000 acres of high-alpine Andean terrain to explore."
