Don’t miss out, shred epic South American terrain with pro skiers this summer

Comments by Thacher Stone/

 

Deep pow in the middle of August is a concept typically reserved for daydreaming. However, with a little help from SASS Global Travel, those daydreams can quickly turn to a reality in Barlioche, Argentina this summer.

The Southern Hemisphere offers skiers the opportunity to experience mid-winter conditions in amazingly badass terrain. Massive granite spires rise from the peaks, creating couloirs that deposit you into huge, open bowls. Fifteen-hundred vertical feet later, perfectly spaced trees provide additional thrills before popping you out at the base of Catedral (South America’s largest ski resort) a mere 100 yards from a hotel compound that SASS Global Travel rents out for its entire crew.

SASS’s program is not your typical summer ski camp. It is a completely guided big-mountain experience that emphasizes avalanche awareness education, while enabling you to push your skiing. SASS Argentina is a prime spot for those looking to take their skiing to the backcountry and charge serious lines in the middle of August, all while learning from top avalanche safety professionals and pro skiers.

SASS Argentina has been dedicated to backcountry awareness for the past decade. Its guide staff and crew of professional coaches including Michelle Parker, Garrett Russell and others will be available to share their extensive knowledge and put you exactly where you want to be from the moment you set foot in South America.
