Another summer comes to a close and with it comes a trip to South America. I just wrapped up my first week in Portillo and am now headed to Valle Nevado and La Parva to have a few more days on snow before finally heading to Corralco to compete in the Brazilian Championships/South America's Cup Finals.
It's been a great week hanging out with some great spring snow. Nothing puts a smile on my face more than getting back on snow. Since the granite company has been growing like crazy in Austin, it has taken a little more time and resources than I would like but I know it will pay dividends down the road.
Portillo was a great first stop on the trip. I felt as though riding more rough big mountain spring conditions would really benefit going into a rough spring track, we shall see. While I rode my Jones Flagship 90% of the time, I had an opportunity to pull out the Oxess and let it fly for a little while.... nothing rides better than a custom race deck.
Met some new people and made some great new friends. On our final day we managed to hike the Super C couloir, which although no new snow has been seen in Portillo in quite a while was a great way to cap the first week.
Enjoy the pictures and I will be sure to update this as the trip goes on!
