Angela grew up in the Patagonia region of Chile, and now lives in the Cajon del Maipo near Santiago.  After professional ski patrolling at Valle Nevado for 4 years,  Angela is now a backcountry ski guide, accredited by the ANGM Chile (Asociacion Nacional De Guias de Montana Chilena,) and holds a Wilderness First Responder certification from NOLS, an 85-hour wilderness first aid course. She also guides ice climbing and mountaineering, and is working towards her IFMGA certification.  When she’s not in the mountains, she enjoys doing yoga, reading, playing chess with her father and especially running. She loves leading groups of women because it is interesting to meet women from other places or countries who also enjoy skiing in the mountains and share experiences together. Angela is looking forward to sharing her home mountains with you!
