Dude, If u want one advice dont come to south america to snowboard...
i live in canada so for me its more about the travel and the fact that there isn't much open in the northern hemisphir during that time of year. It will be fun for me just for those reasons. Thanks for the advice though.
You know, it's funny because I've been contemplating the same trip/location, and I know what woodsbar is saying. All the research I did pointed to it being VERY expensive and time consuming to even GET to a decent resort in Argentina/Chile.
Add to that the fact that we live in an area with some of the best snow and mountains in the world, and it would seem ludicrous for one of us to head to South America.
But then you look at Justin's reasons and it all makes sense. Something about boarding in August that just seems surreal. And seeing another part of the world at the same time makes it cool.
