Pucon, Chile – Get the sweet Argentinean snow this summer at PowderQuest with Pro Snowboarder Shin Campos (photo of Campos hitting the backside on the left). You can choose your own adventure, per se, from two action packed itineraries to come ride the Andes of Argentina with a true living legend. Campos brings decades of riding and guiding expertise to both unique itineraries.

“This once-in-a-lifetime mission with Shin Campos and PowderQuest might be the best way to max out that credit card since iTunes.” (

OPTION ONE: Argentina Snow Adventure (July 16th – July 23rd  > Open to Snowboarders and Skiers > Advanced – Expert)

This adventure is designed for both skiers and riders - it’s fun to integrate! Shin Campos and a certified bilingual PowderQuest ski guide lead the way on this mission to explore the Andes. This unique itinerary links three famous Argentine ski areas.  Avalanche and snow safety awareness clinics help teach the art and science of finding the best snow in the safest manner. Get more equipped with the goods as you gain experience reading the mountain, weather and avalanche conditions.

The week is packed with skiing, riding and learning new skills as the group samples Cerro Bayo, Cerro Chapelco and Cerro Catedral. PowderQuest takes care of every detail so you can focus on riding and skiing, meeting personal goals for the trip and enjoying the Latin American culture. Thanks PowderQuest!

Riders and Skiers will be provided with breakfast and dinner (with red wine-yes!), lift tickets, logistics planning and many other surprises along the way. Private transfers move the group through the countryside of Argentina to comfortable lodging chosen to integrate clients with local culture. This trip is limited to eight skiers and riders. 

OPTION TWO: Snowboard Argentina (September 3rd – September 10th > Snowboard Only >  Intermediate – Advanced)

Unfortunately for all you skiers, this adventure is for snowboarders only. Ride the best of Patagonia, Argentina this summer on PowderQuest’s “snowboarders only freeride-freestyle adventure” with snowboard professional Shin Campos. Work on all aspects of your riding as you tour three resorts in the Andes of South America.

Experience patagonian culture and landscapes and dine in our favorite local restaurants. Great nightlife from quiet cafes to energetic bars, casinos, nightclubs, and discotheques. I sure feel like dancing!
