skiing in Brazil?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi Y'all,

Summertime keeps me too busy to keep up with this site. I miss it. Anyway, I am in Sao Paulo for a few months and am wondering if there is any skiing relatively close to here. Because of my work schedule I am not able to put together enough time to get to the well known resorts in Chile & Argentina. Thnx for your input. :

See you all at the next academy. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

The only place in Brazil with a little dusting of snow in some winters is in the south in the hills near Blumenau in an area full of german immigrants.But to ski there will give a new meaning to the words " rock skis ". [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]
Seriously the only logical way to ski is taking a plane to mendoza ( argentina), but it will take 4/5 days out of the office to ski 2/3 days . Maybe in a long weekend ?

Or practice some surf or diving . ( go to Bombinhas near Porto Velho ) and from there take a boat to the Arvoredo reserve . Great diving !) [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img] but a little cold at this time of the year.

Thnx guys, Maddog, I'll check the link - sounds like a movie link? I did find out that there is a local hill about an hour out of the city. There are about 100 Americans on this job. Perhaps I can get a handful intersted in a little group trip ... and then invite them to EPICSKI, and of course the academy. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

The charters from Sâo Paulo are relatively painless.

Unfortunatley, I think they only go once a week.

In the past they have been idiots about selling one way tickets; they would rather send the plane with empty seats than contemplate a one-way ticket. My sister talked to the charter organizer who realixed that he was leaving money on the table so maybe that will cahnge this yeatr.

If you can take the charter one way, worst case scenario is (if time is your main concern and money is not) to take the charter there and catch a plane from San Rafael to EZE to GRU. You can ski and still make it back the same day.

Hope to see you there!
