Skiing in the Chilean Andes

Here’s a brief account of my quick trip to the mountains.

I’ve been jonezing for some skiing for the last few months. I miss my old days living in the mountains in Lake Tahoe, and sometimes it is hard to be able to be up there for such a short time. It seems to never be enough with skiing.

I’m looking to pour some of of my interests in this blog, ranging from market analysis, news, things that I find curious and seem important to share, and such. Skiing is one of those.

A brief stint: I took off with some friends from Buenos Aires on a 2 hour-flight to Santiago, Chile. Upon arrival, we were picked off by a van, which drove us to the mountains… Our destination: Valle Nevado. Nestled in the middle of the Andes mountain range, usually 1hr. away from Santiago -provided good weather is around- is the area comprised by a network of 3 interconnected resorts which offer endless posibilities for every type of skier. The off piste terrain is massive and easily accesible.

We were welcomed by 2-day snowstorm which left plenty of freshies to enjoy during the following bluebird days. 

Here are a few photos of the trip. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did skiing.
