Skiing in the Andes!


Location: Cordillera de los Andes, Chile

Rundown: Took a ski trip on a beautiful, sunny weekend in Chile. Headed out to Valle Nevados and skied our brains out!


With the end of the summer in the Northern Hemisphere, we have the end of winter here in the Southern part of the world! The snow in the mountains was slowly melting away until a big storm drown the city in sleet, and dumped a beautiful new cover of snow on the peaks of the Andes, just outside town. The mountain gods called, and we responded, by hitting the slopes!


A complete 'bluebird' day... bright blue skies, and new powder!


Didn't quite call for a dust-off, but a helo buzzing around kicked up a lot of snow!


We soaked up every second of it, and came back sore and tired! Sweet!
