FAQ
FAQ
  • Is my trip guaranteed?
    No, as each trip requires a minimum number of guests in order to run, please wait to make travel arrangements and book flights until you have received confirmation from evoTrip that your departure has been confirmed.
  • Can I choose my roommate?
    Yes. If you have a roommate request, please let us know. By default, we will place two people of the same gender in a room with two beds.
  • When and how do I meet up with the group?
    You are responsible for booking your own travel and you must arrive at the Santiago airport by 10:00 am on the first day of your trip. We will be waiting with an evo sign in the terminal just outside of customs.
  • Can I book a private room?
    Yes. Single occupancy rooms may be available at an additional cost of $600. Please contact us if you are interested and note that single rooms are subject to availability, and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.
  • I am a beginner / intermediate / advanced level of skier / snowboarder. Will there be terrain for me?
    Yes. All levels of skiers and snowboarders are welcome. You don’t need to be an advanced or expert skier or snowboarder to have a good time on this trip. However, if you are an expert you won’t be disappointed because there is terrain for everyone. Ski the resort, the parks or if the conditions are right there are plentiful backcountry options. Spend time with the group or do your own thing. For the Aug 18-25 women's telemark camp, we recommend an intermediate to advanced level of skiing, with previous tele experience.
  • Are rentals available or do I need to bring my own equipment?
    We recommend that you bring your own gear. There are rentals available at a local snow shop and at the mountain, unfortunately there is not a list of rental equipment available and we cannot guarantee that you will have access to specific sizes or brands. Avalanche safety equipment is required for backcountry riding and heliskiing, and rentals are available at an additional cost (approximately $15/day).
  • Can I (or my partner) come even if I don’t ski or snowboard?
    Yes. The primary activity on these trips is skiing or snowboarding; however, there may be options if you or your loved one does not currently participate. There is an English-speaking ski school at Nevados de Chillan; you can sign up for lessons and rentals at an additional cost (we can help book this). For folks not interested in learning to ski / snowboard, there are limited opportunities for other activities and the location is beautiful and relaxing. If they would still like to come, we can provide an additional $250 discount. We may be able to help coordinate other activities, such as visits to a spa, yoga or snow shoeing.
  • Will we be able to wash our clothes?
    Yes. Rocanegra can provide laundry services for a small fee.
  • I am going to come early / stay longer; can I do something with my gear?
    There are storage lockers available at the airport, or the hotel in Santiago may be able to hold luggage for limited periods. We are happy to help coordinate this.
  • Can my dietary restrictions be accommodated?
    Yes, please provide advance notice of any dietary restrictions. For meals provided by the lodge/evo (breakfasts and dinners), there will be options available for both. It will be easy to avoid gluten. Being a vegetarian in Chile is easy, but not necessarily delicious. We do recommend that you bring snacks along just in case. While there are no Halal restaurants in Las Trancas, there will be many meal options available by avoiding meat. Similarly, while there are no Kosher restaurants in Las Trancas, there will be many meal options available by avoiding meat. We do recommend that you bring some snacks just in case.
  • I'm ready to book. What next?
    To secure your spot, you can either pay the full amount now or contact Customer Care at 1.866.386.1590 if you prefer to only pay your $1,000 per person deposit. Note that regardless of paying full payment or deposit at time of booking, we will consider $1,000 to be a non-refundable deposit in accordance with our terms and conditions. Full payment is due 60 days prior to departure.
  • What if I need to change or cancel my trip?
    We understand the need for flexibility now more than ever. If you cannot or no longer wish to join your scheduled trip, we are offering the option to forward your deposit to a future evoTrip (at no cost) up to 65 days prior to departure date. However, if you need to cancel, the deposit for the trip is non-refundable and cancellations will be subject to a cancellation fee (see policy below). For this reason, we recommend purchasing travelers insurance, which will cover the cost of your trip in extenuating circumstances. All cancellations must be submitted to evo in writing, are effective as of the date we receive them according to our internal records, and will be subject to a cancellation fee as follows (amounts are per person and only apply to amount paid after the non-refundable deposit amount): Cancellation 60 days or more prior to trip departure - Non-Refundable Deposit. Cancellation between 30 and 59 days prior to trip departure - 50% of total booking cost. Cancellation less than 30 days prior to departure - 100% of total booking cost. Cancellation policy for custom trips may differ from these terms and will be communicated prior to booking. No refunds will be made if you voluntarily leave a trip for any reason after the trip has begun. The same applies if you leave a trip or cannot fully participate in a trip due to injury or illness. Refunds will be at the discretion of the Company if you are involuntarily forced to leave a trip for any reason. No refunds will be made for any accommodation, transport, sightseeing, meals or services not utilized.
  • Should I purchase travel insurance?
    YES! While it is not required, we always recommend purchasing travel insurance for all trips. Travel insurance allows you to seek reimbursement if you are forced to cancel your trip for unforeseeable reasons, or if you need to cover medical help, emergency transport, theft and/or accidental damage while traveling. We recommend World Nomads.
  • What precautions are you taking given the current Covid-19 pandemic?
    While we are optimistic that conditions surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic will be greatly improved by August 2021, we are taking a number of precautions to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests. We have reduced group size permitted with 10 guests maximum on this trip. We're also offering more single room options in case you would prefer your own room as well as any enhanced safety measures proposed in accordance with the latest guidance from the CDC, WHO, and local authorities. If for any reason, evoTrip is forced to cancel your trip, including due to restrictions or conditions related to Covid-19, you will receive a full refund. evoTrip also reserves the right to request that guests minimize their risk of exposure 7-10 days prior to travel, and to take a Covid-19 test and provide proof of negative results within 72 hours of departure date.

Testimonials
The best ski trip experience I have ever had thanks to Ashley and her crew!
Mamie
evoTrip 2016
A special group of individuals at times come together. Chile was one of these times. It's difficult to describe, such different people with diverse backgrounds. The level of conscience that ran through it all amazed me and others as well.
Buddy
evoTrip 2015
I thought this trip was awesome. It was my first time on a trip like this, and it blew all my expectations out of the water.
Derek
evoTrip 2015
It was obvious from the start of the trip that our local guides were doing everything within their power to ensure that our questions were answered and that we had a great time.
Trent
evoTrip 2016
evo really provides a welcoming environment for everybody from the youngest to the oldest with the huge age gap between the two. It really opened up the door for travelling alone and was a great way to get out and ride with a group of awesome people
