Dude, dont come to south america it just sucks save urself some time and money and go somewhere in europe, us, japan or even new zealand.
Its just expensive, the lifts are old, runs are badly mantained and doesnt snow that much too.

Oh shut it with the "locals" attitude. The op has already chosen a spot. I seriously doubt you are going to see a huge increase in crowds from the huge uptick in international travel. Keep in mind these are the people that keep the bullwheels spinning for you. You can always do what I did and quit using ski areas. Crowds, ski area problems...

I'am still checking for a good freeride board, but i probably will buy the Burton Custom X (2013). If anyone has suggestions??? let me know
Hey Sir G, I have been riding a GNU Bully Goat this season and have found it an awesome all round freeride board. It can handle powder quite well. I was riding up to 4ft powder and it handled very well and I found it was good through the trees and crud and even handles groomers well. I noticed you have been boarding for a while but I don't know your level. The Billy Goat seems to respond better the harder you charge. I also ride a Never Summer Premier 1 but found it won't handle the powder as well as the Billy Goat. I also have a Jones Hovercraft split for back country tours.
I have noticed quite a few threads on here discussing boards also with good reviews by forum members. Take the time to read through them and do some research so that you get a board that will do what you want.
Happy riding and make sure you post back on your experience in SA.
