If you do go to Lonqimay, I recommend staying at Andenrose in Curacautin (right on the route to the mountain). The owner Hans is a fantastic cook and they have central heat, plenty of hot water and a big masonry stove (kachelofen) imported from Europe.
Lonquimay is the volcano that my brothers and I attempted to climb in the fall (we found out later that there's an actual path to the top) and that volcano is the mountain that is Ski Corralco.

For what it's worth, we stayed in Malalcahuello at a hotel called Nalcas (actually in one of their cabins), which I would say was acceptable, but not as good as the price would suggest (which is lame considering that it was autumn and therefore low season rates).

If I ever go back, it sounds like I should take a look at Andenrose, even if it is not as far up the valley.

I'm assuming there is a community of people skiing back country.

Of course getting to know the right people is key (people that understand the risks and know when to not go)...
never encountered such a group, but probably out there.

Antillanca is run by a club, or was founded by a club. The club still exists. These people would be in a good position to hook you up with other back country skiers:

We went to Cerro Catedral in Bariloche a few weeks back, I know it’s the other side of the border but it was very nice, end of season but lots of snow, very friendly people, and surprisingly cheap. Great scenery too witha the lakes around. You can stay in Cerro Catedral and walk to the lifts in the morning.

thanks for the ski club tip! I was also wondering about Bariloche (and Cerro Bayo). How easy are they to get to in winter. I remember there is a boat that crosses Lago Todo los Santos but really expensive if I recall...

The trip from Puerto Varas to Bariloche vía Peulla is great, I did it years ago, but it takes 2 days or so. Andesmar has buses from Chile to Bariloche, as far as I know there are no international flights to Bariloche though.

In my opinion, you should try La Parva. It is my favourite place of all. You will definitely have a fantastic time there.
