SASS CHILE – Volcan Lonquimay, Patagonia

SASS Chile is the premier backcountry snowmobile-accessed guided shred experience in the world. There is no better combination of terrain, equipment, lodging and culture on the planet. Combine this with an elite team of guides who create an unparalleled sled-skiing experience. We not only show you to the goods, but get you there on the highest end snowmobiles available, making the up as much fun as the down (well, almost). SASS is excited to introduce this exclusive opportunity to select high-end skiers and snowboarders with high levels of fitness, endurance and a desire for adventure.

PLEASE NOTE:

SASS Chile is our most physically demanding trip! Snowmobile experience is not required, although a high level of strength and stamina are absolutely necessary. SASS offers no refunds for unused days or for those clients unable to participate due to physical fitness.

THE TERRAIN

SNOWMOBILE-ACCESS

SASS Chile is based in…

AVALANCHE SAFETY

Skiing and snowboarding are inherently dangerous activities. Skiing and snowboarding out of the boundaries of a ski resort adds to these risks. It is required that all participants ski or ride with a beacon on their person and a pack containing a shovel and probe. Every participant in the SASS Argentina program will be given an avalanche safety presentation after arrival and before heading out on the mountain. On the first day each group will take part in avalanche scenarios to practice with your beacon and plan for the worst.

SASS Argentina lead guide Skylar Holgate is in charge of snow safety and uses his vast experience in Colorado, Alaska and 11 years in Argentina to determine avalanche risks for the groups. Our professional staff of guides and coaches are in charge of each group and will help you to understand what it takes to enter into the backcountry and why certain precautions must always be taken.

We pride ourselves in our focus on avalanche education and offer constant opportunities to ask questions to further your understanding of the backcountry. Avalanche courses are available as well (click HERE for more information).

GUIDES AND STAFF

SASS Chile is the brainchild of head guide and mountain legend Skylar Holgate. The staff is rounded out by SASS guides who are all accomplished professionals who have as much experience as anyone accessing ski and snowboard terrain via snowmobiles. All of our guides have completed at minimum a Level 2 AIARE avalanche safety course and are CPR and Wilderness First Responder (WFR) or Outdoor Emergency Care (OEC) certified. Each has over a 8 years of experience guiding in South America. This badass crew is here to not only show you to the goods, but teach you to ride mountain sleds for the purpose of sled-access skiing in big mountain backcountry terrain.

SASS Chile is supported by the staff at Sled Chile, giving us additional resources, local knowledge and premier access to some of the world’s best terrain.
