Las Leñas; a freeride paradise

For a couple of years now the Andes is one of my favourite places to go skiing. This trip I had the opportunity to ski different areas in this impressive mountainrange for about 2 months.

Argentina and Chile; steaks, nightlife and the Andes

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.
