I browsed the snoventures site, and it looks like they market the same resort, off-piste and backcountry focus trips as Powderquest.

I only caught the bus once to come back from the mountain.


What does this mean? There are no buses at the end of the day (or rare), just in the morning? Or bus are full and you decide to hitch a ride? I heard a horror story on TGR regarding bus at Termas late in the season.

You scared me this morning... :(

I received an email from Portillo later this morning (sent one last night) confirming that they have room at the Inca or Octogon, although they don't accept reservations less than one week at this stage. But found out that they do accept shorter stays if there is room left on week before. Anyway, that part of the trip is now solved thourgh someone else, I just to decide on the first week. :P
