"Oh, the streets of Rome are filled with rubble, Ancient footprints are everywhere.
You can almost think that you're seein' double on a cold, dark night on the Spanish Stairs."
- Bob Dylan, When I Paint My Masterpiece.
Well kids and fans of the snow world.
Sorry to rain on you parade, but for the last month I have been shredding epic powder. With the help from my good friends and associates Pep Fujas, Michelle Parker, Dash Longe and Jordan Seldin the adventures have been endless. Not to forget the lucky campers that followed our every turn with nothing but a grin from chin to chin.
This is my fourth season of living in Argentina...if you're not already aware. I believe Argentina is an adventure for the open hearted. Those who come with expectations or comparisons to their home vs. living here, have a hard time finding themselves.
Either way...I will continue to return to Argentina as long as I can walk. Even then I'll be sure to return. If you are interested in joining my army at South America Snow Sessions, check out our website at http://www.sasnowsessions.com

Jordan Seldin loves doing rodeos for Satan.
Why conform and ride the same jump everyday when you make your own and learn switch right 5's?
