The Progression Sessions and Steep-N-Deep Powder Tours have teamed up once again this summer to bring the best all women’s camp in the Southern Hemisphere. The demand was so high TPS x Steep-N-Deep expanded this years camp into two sessions with a max of 12 campers per session. Experience the Chilean Andes by making turns at the most renowned resorts and backcountry outfitters in the area with experienced guides and coaches. Backcountry awareness and safety session provided to provide cohesive learning for the group and to get any new-to-the-backcountry riders ready for the week! Off hill, discover Chilean culture via delicious, traditional cuisine; relax and enjoy Chilean apres and stunning Andes sunsets; explore Chile’s capital city, Santiago; partake in an art and culture tour in the coastal paradise of Valparaiso; enjoy a wine tasting; and go surfing on the coast! TPS x SND is the perfect way to beat the summertime blues and adventure in the Chilean Andes!
The first 10-day session is only for the most experienced rider looking to take their backcountry and park skills to the next level. Tour guide Ian Gil and coaches Christine Savage and Mary Walsh (along with additional coaching staff TBA) will take the group to ride the world famous snow resorts of Valle Nevado, El Colorado, La Parva and Portillo. The crew will score untracked powder in the backcountry during a day of catboarding at Chile’s only private snowcat operation, Ski Arpa. Ski Arpa provides an unforgettable experience, riding in the shadow of Mt. Aconcagua, the tallest mountain in the southern and western hempisheres. If you are new to the backcountry, the guides will provide a session on backcountry safety and awareness to prepare everyone for riding together all week.
The second 8-day session is designed around the rider that’s looking to take the next step and head out in the backcountry, as well as polish their skills in the park. With an intermediate to advanced level the group will love all the terrain that TPS x SND has on tap to ride and experience. the 8-day trip will snowboard at the resorts of Valle Nevado, La Parva and El Colorado as well as explore the cities of Santiago, Viña Del Mar and Valparaiso.
