Greetings from Portillo Chile. We just completed day 7 of 8 days here. Today was a great day. There was probably 1m of fresh snow this morning and I got on the first chair and had runs all to myself off of Plateau lift.
Here's a look at them digging out the lift last night before the snow even stopped falling.
I rode up on a chair lift with Mikaela Shiffrin and her coach from the US Ski team. The Chilean army is out practicing skiing with huge 25 kg packs and hiking boots with some bizarre bindings. We had lunch at Tio Bob's and headed to the other side of the lift in the afternoon.
Portillo is a super fun and unique place. If you get the chance, come on down.
Here's a look at Laguna del Inca from today.
