My calendar for the northern winter of 2013 is already full.  I’d still love to hear from you and hopefully start planning a great adventure.
“Summer” 2013 in Chile 
The bulk of my guiding work is done from sometime in July until sometime in October each year.  I own a guide service, Chile Powder Adventures, which is focused on human-powered skiing in Chile.  I offer trips for a variety of ability and commitment levels – some in a group setting, others by private arrangement.  
Look Ahead to 2014
I am already making plans for 2014 and I know it will be the best season yet.  Below is a quick teaser of what’s to come.  Feel free to contact me for more details and start making plans.  
avalanche one at berthoud pass
holiday hut trip in the san juan mountains 
introduction to ski touring in the never summer range
backcountry skills clinics weekend
ski improvement for backcountry skiers
ski touring week at battle abbey, british columbia
steep powder skiing in glacier bay national park, alaska

And of course, I am available for custom, privately guided trips, just send me a note and we can make it happen.  


Independent Descents is NOT a guide service.  I, Donny Roth, am a ski guide, and as such I work for other guide services when legally required.  Additionally, there are certain services I don’t offer:  I don’t work as a heli-ski guide, I don’t work within ski resort boundaries in North or South America, I don’t guide where I don’t have permission.  Furthermore, I am limited in what I can do professionally in Europe, I might be able to ski with you, but it’s likely that I will recommend another guide that is better suited for you.
