Looks sick Karasene! Next summer is Disneyland for the kid, but the summer after that is looking like it will have to be somewhere quite a bit further south. Winter in the summer looks to good to pass up forever.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Nice vid Karasene! I love the fact in Argentina you can be in the alpine, with the rock spires and all, yet still get some decent looking tree runs too. Definitely puts that place higher on my list than visiting Chile. Good stuff.

Yeah I have to say I had one of the best tree runs in my life. After a fresh storm is was sooo sick in there. The only down side to tree runs at Cerro Catedral is the cat tracks. If you down keep an eye out for them it'll just open right up to flat. But again best tree run of my life so far. Just point and shoot and it was all powder.

Sooooo, if I go splitboaring down there, I probably won't have to worry about cat tracks???


Definitely a great summer trip.

haha yeah I think that's a good point.

When I think of splitboarding in this area tho I still think most all the riding is above tree line.

The week I was here Chris Coulter did a 2 day trip out a place called Refugio Frey with several of the guys a part of SGT. These guys have been riding the Andes around Bariloche for 7 years now. http://www.ccoultershred.com If there's anyone to ask about backcountry riding in the Argentina Andes its these guys. I'll have to ask him about the tree runs off the mountain.

There are quite a few resources for getting info on Argentina for Splitboard trips actually. The Sweetgrass guys have also been going down there for years. I would definitely have to look someone up to guide us around. No point in spending the money to go do there and wing it.

I've seen plenty of vid from Sweetgrass to know there are plenty of tree runs to be had in that area.
