It’s been a big winter so far in South America, a huge storm rolled through Chile and Argentina this winter leaving a lot of snow. Check out the Las Lenas webcam image below. The Andes can sometimes be predominantly dry and bony – not this year it seems.
Sass Global Travel are running their splitboard clinics again this winter. In conjunction with Jones Snowboards and Spark R&D, they are run by big mountain snowboard guide Chris Coulter and look like a great way to improve backcountry skills and rip some Andean pow at the same time. SASS base themselves in the resort of Catedral in Argentina – a place known for having an abundance of in and out-of-bounds untracked terrain.
Inquire about the Jones splitboard clinics through the SASS website.
