Traveling through Chile with a Ian Gil from Steep N Deep powder tours was a wonderful experience. Our week long trip gave us time to have epic days in the mountains surrounding Santiago and also gave us a chance to explore some cities, go wine tasting, and surfing. Ian's local knowledge gave us a unique cultural experience and his positive attitude made him a great guide on and off the snow. I'm looking forward to joining Ian on a another trip this year.

Let me tell you a thing or two about Steep-n-Deep Tours....... Ian Gill the owner and soul runner of Steep-n-Deep is nothing short of a miracle worker. He took a group of #12gringasand1chilean and created a lifetime worth of memories in one week. Not only is he knowledgeable and has the patience of a saint, he's an all around nice guy. He made it his personal mission to make sure each of us had the most amazing trip. He took us on super fun historical tours of his home country, to the best ski/snowbaording resorts in the Farellonnes, to Casablanca for wine tasting and to Concon beach for surfing. The amount of activities he was able to book in a 7 day window was awe inspiring. Not only did we get to stay in the nicest hotels, get treated like family in every restaurant we visited, we practically took over the Hotel Farellonnes like it was our own. 
All the Chilean locals we met were the kindest people on earth. We stopped by a woman's home on the way down the mountain and had homemade empanadas in her front yard! Chileans are the most hospitable people I've ever had the honor of meeting and I can see why Ian is so proud of his home and culture. If you ever want a unique Chilean experience where you're treated like family every step of the way, 110% I would recommend Steep N Deep to any and everyone. Thank you Ian for the best trip, I can't wait until next year!
