Simply put, if you are interested in taking a once-in-a-lifetime splitboarding trip, all while learning from one of the most, if not THE most, experienced splitboard guides in North America, then I strongly recommend you book a trip with SGI. I was fortunate enough to join Eric Layton and team down in Chile this past September, and our 10-day splitboarding adventure was second-to-none. Eric is an incredibly knowledgeable and fun guide who was very willing to impart his splitboard wisdom, all while putting safety first (both on and off the mountain). 

If you are passionate (or aspiring to become passionate) about splitboarding, I can assure you that you’ve come to the right place in booking a trip with SGI. Do yourself a favor and book a trip with them; you won’t regret it.

The Chile Volcano Splitboard Tour was an amazing, action packed, unique, one of a kind experience. Not only did we get to tour every single day (no matter what the weather ☺), we also, explored remote natural hot springs, danced until 4am with the locals. We rode horses to our rustic remote ski hut, we toured in sun, and rain, wind and whiteout and we were rewarded with endless breathtaking views, face shots and non-stop laughter.

The volcanoes were spectacular, our guide, Eric Layton and group dynamics were awesome. Every day was lived to the fullest on and off the mountains!!!
Also, it was an added bonus to be out with a group of splitboarders. Although I enjoy touring with my ski friends, bonding on boards is different.

I can’t wait until next year! Amy Godfrey
