Visiting the Southern Hemisphere was such a great experience. Our main goal was to do as much skiing as possible on a limited budget. We also wanted to get in some backcountry skiing while down there, but due to weather conditions and bad timing we never really got to as we had hoped. We did find some cool terrain and good snow and made new friends. During the month that we were there we traveled a lot checking out different areas. We learned about how the Argentines approach life; very relaxed, no breakfast, lots of mate, siestas, and late lunches and dinners.

You can read about our trip on the blog that we set up. It's in reverse order, so scroll to the very bottom entry on the page to read enties in succession rom the start of the trip.
