Its been too long since my last post but I have some good stories and pics to share from our second trip to the Southern Hemisphere this year. After a month off snow we flew back down to Chile and hung our hats in a place called Portillo. Portillo is perched high on the Andes Mountains (10,000 feet at the base) and is home to 5 chairlifts, 4 rocca jacks (I'll post a picture to give you an idea but it's basically a 5 person palma lift), one hotel, and some of the best skiing in the world. Aconcagua, the largest mountain in the Americas, towers over Portillo at 22,841...it's a special place. Fortunately we had two weeks of training all to ourselves and we took full advantage of the epic spring conditions from a strong Chilean winter. I personally had a great camp and skied well throughout so I'm excited for the upcoming season, which is just a month and half away (The World Cup Downhill season starts Thanksgiving weekend in Lake Louise, Canada). Check out some pics from Jonathan Selkowitcz (www.selkophoto.com) who was there the entire two weeks documenting our camp.
