"Superb!! You did an amazing job. There's nothing like skiing with guides who really know the mountains and obviously care about why we we're here. Only problem is that we have to wait a whole year to come back."

" I can't believe I was initially planning to travel around Chile and Argentina myself on a search for skiing. How could I ever have hoped to have the type of experience I've had with PowderQuest! You and Mike are both excellent guides, knowledgeable, safe, fun, and motivated. Furthermore you have done an excellent job picking the resorts, hotels, restaurants, etc. I came on this trip with very simple goals, to ski hard and fast, steep and deep. In reality I have come away with much more; good friends, local knowledge, new backcountry skills, and maybe most importantly some new perspectives on life. You really did everything possible to make this the trip of a lifetime."
"As my ski trip to South America approached, I expected long runs in knee deep powder. What I didn't expect was that our two guides, Max and Mo, would do such an excellent job in making me experience the true wonders of Patagonia, both on and off the mountain. Whether it was in the restaurants, bars, discos or tracking down hikes and runs that were excellent regardless of the snow conditions, Max and Mo showed me why PowderQuest was the right choice."
"A truly unique experience. I enjoyed every minute of the whole trip. I would love to come back every year. The views, the powder, the food, the hot springs, the hikes, the drives and the volcano are all memories I will take from this trip, this adventure. I still can not believe that I climbed an active volcano and boarded down…Thanks for the great lines!"
""This trip opened my eyes to a whole new world. Thanks for teaching me how to put turbo power into my turns, and most of all thanks for leading us to amazing vistas and lines."
"We've been on multiple guided backcountry ski trips in Canada with ACMG guides so we can definitely rate this trip with experience. Phil's combination of excellent skiing, excellent guiding, trilingual, and socially robust with the locals made our experience in Chile for us wonderful. Termas de Chillan is worth coming back to explore, so much terrain! We were very satisfied with PowderQuest's organization of the trip and ability to adapt to changes in plans of the group. Can't wait until the next trip!"

"We spent our honeymoon with PowderQuest skiing the backcountry in Chile. What an awesome trip! PowderQuest is very organized and professional; from the travel arrangements and accommodations to the safety of the guiding. Our guide Phil was so much fun! He catered to our needs on and off the snow. Can't think of a better way to spend a honeymoon than skiing pow in Chile with these guys."

"I absolutely had the time of my life on the PowderQuest tour with Les and Owen. We skied that exact terrain that I was looking to ski. I always felt safe and confident with Les and Owen's choice of lines and terrain while still providing an exciting and challenging experience. I have already recommended your outfit to several of my friends in Colorado who are looking for a high end ski tour. Thank you for working with my schedule and placing me in a group that loved to charge."
Patagonia Powder Tour
"I just wanted to drop you a line expressing how happy I was with the trip these past two weeks. I had a great time and in particular I am so grateful to have been exposed to the backcountry experience (even though we didn't end up hiking the volcano). The hiking we did was demanding and so rewarding. I'm very interested in doing more of the same in the future--its really opened a whole new aspect of the sport up to me. Furthermore, the guides were great, the snow was amazing, the mountains were beautiful, and the culture was so intriguing."
"Unfortunately, all good things come to an end. I can't say enough about this trip from the guides to the group itself, all were exceptional people. The snow, wine, food and the beautiful women will be remembered long after this trip ends..
Many thanks to all involved in this tour. I will definately come back for more!"
"What makes a trip like this so successful is the ability of the guides to relate to the members of the group and remain flexible. PowderQuest was flawless."
"We skied the best powder I have skied in 20 years"
"I had a fantastic time! The group and the guides were great and my stomach muscles hurt from all the laughing I've done over the past 9 days. The trip was a great adventure for me, having never been to South America before, and my expectations were exceeded in many ways.
Dan and Luis are true professionals and I had so much fun skiing with them as guides."
"Patagonia's the most insane place I've ever seen. Having local knowledge in a place so diverse is the only way to get the goods. PowderQuest knows the place like the back of their hands."

"PowderQuest was wicked. The tour was totally flexible which meant we could disregard hotel schedules and chase the powder.
On some days it was as if PowderQuest had rented out the total mountain.
The one thing that David did not warn us about was that the hotels and food was going to be top quality. The tour was worth the time and money even without the riding!"
"What a trip! This tour was unbelievable and more than I had expected. The itinerary was perfect for a 9-day trip. The skiing was great, with the highlight being the hike up the volcano's crater, and the ski down. David and Luis were excellent and accommodating guides. I will very likely be back next year, and this trip will come HIGHLY recommended by me. Thanks for the unbelievable experience!"
"An amazing experience! Thank you for a great trip. Very professional. For anyone whoever thought about giving skiing South America a try, there is only one number to call, you guys!"
"Great guiding and understanding of the mountains, the cities, cultures and especially our group with our goals and desires here in. Definitely coming back for more. Keep things flexible like they are now and your trips will be the best choice. I plan on talking you guys up in North America, especially in the Sierras and Mammoth. Free marketing for you guys! You deserve it."
"Not everybody’s perfect honeymoon, but it was a great part of ours. The lodging was everything you said it would be. Every restaurant we went to was top quality. We found good snow during a no new snow period. Hiking to the top of the volcano in Pucon was something I will never forget.
The trip was everything you promised and much much more. Thank you for a great summer. The best I've ever had."
"Unbelievable experience. Not only a quest for powder, but a quest for fun, adventure and culture!
Honeymooners’ paradise for adventure seekers! I will never forget the feeling of accomplishment after completing the hike on the volcano, and the great corn skiing we had afterwards.
Thank you guys for showing us such a wonderful time. This trip was absolutely amazing!"
