So, just had my shoulder operated on 3 weeks ago and figured a good motivator for rehab would be to book a rad ski trip for October when I finish my summer work gig. So arriving in Santiago October 4th, renting a truck and getting busy with it.
Was wondering if anybody has spent any time down their, preferably around this spring season but any info would be super rad! Will be doing up a real nice TR and hopefully make a watchable fun edit of the whole thing. Its quite a ways away but the gears are already turning! Also if anyone was thinking of flying down there flights are on at a huge bargain! paid 775 all in from Calgary AB-Santiago round trip. Badda boom Badda Bing.
Trip will be very loosely planned, going to start by checking out the Maipo zone first and then work in from their. Steep couloirs and faces, hot springs and roads to 3000m are my main motivators. shred their till we're ready to move on then somehow make our way down to Patagonia Via whatever seems like the most fun.
Here are a few pics I've found and links to a few TR's that have me fired up.
This shot I stole from http://theoutsideout.blogspot.ca/2013/12/central-chile-cajon-del-maipo.htmlhttp://theoutsideout.blogspot.ca/2013/12/central-chile-cajon-del-maipo.html
Got that one off the google machine but I'm pretty sure the pic is from Oct, not bad coverage!
Whats not to love about climbing a mountain to look into a flaming crater filled with molten lava only to shred big GS corn turns down a massive face forever. Yea nothing
Another one from that Outsideout blog, beauty camping spot, hot springs and rad lines in the background. I can drink beer to that, well I can drink beer to anything but especially that.
Anyways I feel like I just wrote a Mini TR about a Trip that I haven't even gone on yet but to say I'm fired up is an understatement!
