Missing snowboarding when it’s beach weather outside? The Southern Hemisphere is the place to be in the warm months, so The Progression Sessions has partnered with Steep n Deep Powder Tours to bring you powder days in the summer months.

In August 2017, for the second year, TPS will head to South America for an 8-day trip that goes from park to powder and beyond. This edition of TPS builds on the freestyle weekend camps by taking park skills into a big mountain setting in the Chilean Andes. Focus is on riding all mountain terrain, navigating steeps, groomers, park, and powder. Also included in an intro to backcountry safety and avalanche awareness to provide the necessary resources to safely navigate terrain outside the resort boundaries.

The tour is all inclusive (minus airfare) with lodging, lift tickets, meals, and special activities. Snowboarding at multiple resorts is on the itinerary and because shredding all day is only one of the ways to experience a new country, the TPS x Steep n Deep Chile trip includes cultural tours in Chile’s cities, wine tasting, nightlife, and a day surfing on the coast (lesson and equipment included). It’s an incredible way to experience Chile and its mountains while progressing your snowboarding!

See the full itinerary and info for the 8-day resort and backcountry tour, with optional catboarding add-on.
