Chile July 2019
take the bus to Valle Nevado for the day, great backcountry
or take the Heli from the top of W hotel and go heli skiing
Portillo is another option but a little further away. it's one of the most beautiful resorts that i have ever been to. The Super-C couloir is EPIC!
I'd bring a split. I never made it to Valle Nevado but had some friends there and they loved it. La Parva is right there too, and I think they have cat skiing. Farellones is the little town there (check out BASE CAMP Farellones) on facebook.
Portillo is amazing, its just kinda hard to stay there and figure out the packages- and its expensive. the last day there- we never paid for tickets and rode all day without being hassled, haha, but things may be different now.
Great - thanks for the intel!
I found some Super-C vids: looks awesome, that traverse, though haha
