Pucon, Chile (March 2014) – After two years based in La Parva, Chile, the Ingrid Backstrom Women's Freeride Camp is moving south to Nevados de Chillán, home to Chile's deepest snowpack. The new location not only offers more opportunity to explore, but it’s a new destination for the many returning guests. It is also one of Ingrid’s favorite places to ski in the Andes. Nevados de Chillán is renowned for its volcanic terrain that challenges guests with a mix of alpine and tree skiing.
"I am really excited to switch up locations this year for our camp, Nevados de Chillán is one of my all time favorite places and I can’t wait to share it with a group of rad women,” says Backstrom. “There are volcanoes, natural hot springs, cool forests, a huge expanse of really fun rolling, untracked terrain off the lifts, and a lot of hike-able and lift-accessed backcountry with terrain for every ability.”
The camp will be based out of Nevados de Chillán Hotel, a ski-in, ski-out accommodation based in the old growth forest on the lower slopes of Nevados de Chillán. The highlight is the hot spring-fed pool and spa just footsteps from the guest's room.
"With so many returning guests this year, it was important to keep a similar structure to the camp that has made it so successful, yet also offer something fresh,” says PowderQuest Founder David Owen. “New terrain seemed to be the best option, and Nevados de Chillán was unanimous when I approached Ingrid about the change. I am really excited about the move further south."
