Our friend Tom Winter wrote a great piece on Powder South featured in The Boulder Weekly in April 2016.
The mountains are the spine of the continent. They run for thousands of miles, in places jagged and impassible, in others friendlier, with passes guarded by large volcanoes that vent steam and spit lava. These are empty landscapes. Traveled by few, buffeted by storms. Exotic, yes, but also welcoming and closer than you think.
It’s hard to think about skiing and powder days and cold feet and runny noses in the middle of July. But when the temperature in Boulder starts to kiss 100, then perhaps it’s time to think and plan and dream a bit. To consider the unlikely journey south — south to the snow of the Chilean Andes.
