Argentina and Chile; steaks, nightlife and the Andes

When I was skiing in Sun Peaks (Canada) I discussed travelplans with a guy I had met. He mentioned his ex-girlfriend had snowboarded in Argentina. I had no idea at the time there was even snow in South America. Almost six months later I landed in the country known for big delicious steaks, football and tango.

Torrecillas, Las Leñas, Argentina

Skiing all corners of the world one will eventually end up in freeriders’ paradise Las Leñas in Argentina. Many options for some serious “steep & deep” but the backyard of Marte chairlift remains classic. One of the most aesthetic peaks is definitely Cerro Torrecillas. I got to ski it in the summer of 2009.
