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.

la Cabrera, steakhouse in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Argentina is famous for tango but also for great steaks. Their meat is so tender it makes every man’s heart pound faster. If you really want to challenge your heart, pay la Cabrera with a visit!

River Plate – Argentinos Juniors in Buenos Aires

Pablo Aimar, Gabriel Batistuta, Claudio Caniggia, Hernan Crespo, Ariel Ortega and Javier Saviola all played for River Plate. Combine that fact with their beautiful home jersey and you’ll understand I had no choice but to see a game in Estadio Monumental.
