Daily skiing, snowboarding and other activities will take place between 8am-4pm daily. Each day you will receive time to ski with and without instruction. Lunch will be eaten on the hill at one of the on-hill restaurants. Transportation is arranged between the lodge and the mountain.
On-mountain days consist of morning lessons and afternoon free riding. In the morning, campers will be paired up in a group that accommodates their skill level. Each group will be instructed by an Ontour instructor. In the afternoons, campers can ride with their friends while testing the skills they have learned. Our goal is that each participant will return home a better snowboarder or skier.
City Tour of Santiago: Ride with Style will start and end in the capital city of Santiago. The first day of the tour will be a day desgignated for settling in, chilling and getting a little taste of what this awesome city is all about.

There will be scheduled visits for surf lessons, a night beach olympics event, cable-car rides, market and museum visits, boat trips and chilling on the beach.
The trip was designed for teens who love to ski and snowboard and cannot wait until the season starts again. This program will allow riders of all levels to drop into South Americas finest scenery and snow. Not only is Chile a beautiful country full of color, culture and friendly people, but also home to riders from all over the world who come to this little piece of heaven to practice for their teams. Its not abnormal to see a pro rider cruising down the hill, or a film crew shooting for the hottest new DVD for the next riding season. The program is also designed for teens who love to travel and enjoy learning about new cultures and countries. This trip will not only get your feet “wet with snow” but also leave you with a whole new understanding of Chilean culture.
