Actually from what I have seen I think the terrain is more varied in Argentina. It would be my personal first choice if I was headed down to the southern hemisphere for some shredding. Plus have you seen their women???

Based on a a bunch o' research I did a few months ago, SA (Chile, Argentina) is better than NZ. Neither place gets as much snow as the Northern Hemisphere, but neither is bad. Resort choice/location is important though. I got an east coast US vibe for the type of conditions down there. Best time to go is mid July to mid August. Much shorter season than we have.

If i lived in the US or canada i would never come to SA and waste money here. I would safe money to go to different places in the northern hemisphere.
U guys in the western part of the us and canada considered yourself real lucky you guys have no idea of how much money and effort it takes me to snowboard.

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.
This. I'm heading to S.A. after NZ this winter and I am ridiculously excited about the prospect. It doesn't matter that the snow won't be as good as BC or the mountains as big as Europe. It's a new place to board, new countries to visit and the excitement of everything that goes with the travel.

If I were set on going to South America, I'd make it a surf trip.


that's what u get for trying to stir up envy - your trip is gonna suck!


just bring a 200cm Rad Air Tanker.
This, too funny.

Dude, you are going to an "adult" camp? That is like a summer camp for retards, who can't travel by themselves. The whole point of international travel is to try something different, on your own....not fucking disneyland, hold your hand, order drinks for you. lol

Different strokes for different folks. I ride alone a lot and wouldn't do the camp thing. My wife would love the camp for juat the socializing aspects of it. Either way id love to do NZ and sa....

I've thought of going to the adult camp at Copper Woodward just to get some proper coaching. I've never had any and it would be cool I think.

lol yes i need drinks order for me thats why im going to a camp, im also bring my mom along just in case they don't know what i like.

I am going for 2 weeks, only one is to a camp. im also heading to chile next winter to do some hiking. I just went to africa last summer (zambia and the DRC) and do lots of traveling, i think going to a camp for a week will be ok.

Also, i told them i didn't need a designated hand holder for me and they could use that person to help someone else that needed both hands held...

ya its pretty hard to go and take other vacations during the winter here, everything is so close and the mountains are so beautiful. I didn't grow up in the rockies and have only lived close to them for a few years. I don't think that i will ever leave the area. The quality of life is so great.
