Skiing Patagonia After A 4-Foot Storm

With ski travel, sometimes you score, some times you just get skunked.  It's just part of the reality in snow chasing adventures.  Last week was one of those golden weeks chasing snow in Patagonia, Argentina.  We scored and scored big.  We arrived right after the 4 foot dump at Catedral in Bariloche and surrounding areas.  The skies exploded blue and we had a week of powder and corn skiing not soon to be forgotten.

This trip ran from July 18-25.  After the trip heavy rain fell in the area but is now returning to snow and snow is expected most of this week.  See the full photo album here on Facebook
