    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    That shadow at the end sums up the stoke from that vid very very well. Looks like you guys had a very worth while trip!
    Just ski down there and jump off something for crying out loud!

    Snow looked meh, but the rooftop pick up makes it a win.

    I think I'd be satisfied with that quality snow in September...

    Gives new meaning to the word powder. But, still it's Sept., and it's heli-skiing untracked in some sick terrain. That had to be a pricey jumping off pt fm the Radisson, dwntwn Santiago.

    I always thought Santiago kind of sucked (look at that smog!) but now I see it has some serious redeeming value.
