On my trip this summer I was on the snowboarding/business/vision quest seeking the best places to snowboard in the Southern Hemisphere. At least the best in Chile and Argentina.
Along the way I made a stop at a resort I have been reading about since I was a child. Valle Nevado in Chile. I saw the coolest things. Great views of Santiago, Huge Condor birds, Horses and Cows in the middle of the road, great sunsets, snowboarded powder, saw awesome street dogs and stayed at the legendary Blue Tambo lodge during my stay.
Chile is a really beautiful country and snowboarding there is awesome. Definitely suggest checking it out.
