PowderQuest, operators of guided ski and snowboard tours in South America for 14 years, announce partnering with Drift Innovation cameras for an upcoming 2012-13 web series filmed entirely in the Andes of South America. The series will focus on showcasing skiing and snowboarding adventures combined with culture and travel south of the equator to produce authentic content direct from the Andes.

The partnership outfits key PowderQuest guides and staff members with Drift camera and accessory packages to document what it is like to search for powder in the summer in the Chile and Argentina. The web series, “Through the Andes,” kicks off in June with a look at skiing an active volcano in Southern Chile.

“The unique nature of the Drift POV camera allows us to capture footage in a non-invasive way and give viewers a real look into the resorts, towns and people that make skiing in Chile and Argentina so special. This web series will be a refreshing way to relive the adventures and dive into culture and travel experiences.” says David Owen of PowderQuest.

During the months of July through October, PowderQuest operates trips in a long list of winter regions in both Chile and Argentina. Over 14 resorts are visited with clients from all over the world in search of powder. A photo gallery will be uploaded using the Drift camera image function throughout the season on the PowderQuest website and blog.

“The locations PowderQuest visits during a full South America season provide a stream of content like no other. With Drift cameras on hand to capture the action, we are looking forward to the episodes as much as anyone. The natural rustic environment from northern Patagonia locations like Cerro Bayo and La Hoya, contrasted with more established infrastructure of resorts like Valle Nevado and Portillo provide a balanced view of the South American ski landscape. We hope the audience enjoys a little taste of winter in the summer coming at you from the Southern Hemisphere,” says Drift Chile’s Jose Thomas Fernandez Haverbeck.
