Where would you go for an August snowboarding trip? What do you think 2 weeks would cost coming from CA? Trying to scope out different resorts, places to stay, budgets, and also think about activities for my non-snowboard obsessed fiance.
I hit Chile last August and it was pretty awesome. Snow wasn't as good as it could have been, but the size of the mountains we rode were huge.
I just saw this list this morning "7 places to ski before you die" and Las Lenas in Argentina is #2....something to consider, perhaps.
Chile, but it's expensive and a bit of a mission to get there. NZ is good, I boarded in Queenstown & Wanaka + heliboarding and it was great. But we had heaps of snow, the best they'd had in 14 years or something. Some places are still OK with shit snow, but I think NZ would suck if there wasn't much snow.
Get over here to NZ, Queenstown/Wanaka, you will not regret it, flights will not be cheap, book places to stay early and it isn't too bad, Beers will cost you a few extra bucks I'm sure..... But well worth it!!
I'm from Brazil and going to Chile on August 1st.. Snow predictions for this year are positive! I would consider... there are a few great options like: Valle Nevado (where im going), Las Leņas, Chapelco and Portillo.
