The Superstars Ski Camp is an amazing week of good hard skiing and fun in the beautiful Andes Mountains. The cost of the camp is $2150 and that includes coaching with Chris Anthony, Ingrid Backstrom, Wendy Fisher, Mike Douglas and myself. The hotel costs are not included in the camp fee, and they vary based on what type of accommodation you choose. The Hotel Portillo is all-inclusive, so your ski week includes lodging, food, lift tickets and such. Rooms range in price, but I recommend a double-lake view room in the hotel, which usually runs around $2400 per person for the week (which ends up being around $300 per night including lifts and 4 meals per person). Other options are the Octagon lodge, which is more rustic but still fine. Those rooms are for four people but you can reserve it with only three and only pay for three. All in all, the week usually costs around $5500 per person including your airfare- so less than a week of heli-skiing- which reminds me they have great heli-skiing at Portillo 🙂
The hotel will pick you up at the airport but you must indicate that you would like this service when you book your hotel room – they will probably point you to Portillo Tours and Travel to book it. Our camp is geared towards expert skiers who are looking to take their skiing to new heights, but are generally too advanced for your normal ski lesson. So our coaches push you into new experiences in a safe and calculated manner. We ski hard and do some climbing and traversing to reach the best snow and terrain. It’s an incredible ski week and we have had nothing but great response over the last seven years in Portillo.
Here is a video from two years ago that will give you an idea of the camp:

Hi Chris – I was reading about your recent Everest adventure and stumbled across this training camp in August so am enquiring if there is any availability? I am 40, and have been skiing +25 years. I did an all mountain course about 5 years ago in chamonix for expert skiers. For the last two years I have skied mostly in Engelberg, off piste including a couple of short tours in the region. Most of the skiing in Engelberg is c. 35 degree pitches but you can find the odd Couloir that is steeper, probably 40. The camp looks like an amazing opportunity to ski with a few faces I normally only see in magazines.
I look forward to hearing from you with any additional information you may have.
