I've been WFH for about 15 months now and after a fire season of fucking off on fridays to ride key and a bay and answer teams messages from my phone, I've realized that I'm certainly not ready for the season to be over and want to continue this trend.
A good friend and I have had the idea in theory for months and months and to WFH for a month of the summer in another country where we could ski too. Glaciers in Europe are way too damn expensive and the time change doesn't allow me to attend the meetings I have as priority. So we've landed on a new solution.
For the month of July and part of august, we'll be skiing and riding out of San Carlos De Bariloche in Argentina. Time zone works out where i can ski 9-noon then work 12:30-9 PM, which im unreal stoking on. Just booked the 2 bedroom house in the town center (surprisingly affordable at about $22 per night per person for 24 nights). Renting a car as well, crazy lucky to pull this off, been saving for since idea inception 8 months ago.
My question for the boys is - has anyone ever ridden in Argentina or this mountain range specifically? Wondering if anyone can provide insight on the mountain (is the park popping, where the danky terrain is, is apres a beautiful shitshow, etc.)
I realize there are websites with info and shit but honestly many are surprisingly cryptic, especially the ticket office site, so would love insight there too.
I know there's a casino in town and looking to make sure the argentinean steakhouses aren't the only warm cuts of meat you can find after hours short of a whorehouse so lmk about nightlife (heard there are clubs in town).
