For any of the nomadic boarders who follow the snow, check your snowboard gear guide and get ready spend the summer and early fall in South America after a full winter and spring in the north for year round snowboarding. When in South America, check out these six hot spots (or should we say cool spots) for the best mountain snow all “summer” long.
The oldest resort in South America, Portillo is an isolated area in the
Patagonia. Legendary for its 14,000
acres of available terrain, boarders must commit to a full week at the lodge if
interested in snowboarding this mountain. Because of this requirement, the
mountain is almost always quiet making the experience feel as if the mountain
has never been explored before. Plus, the area is so expansive that to fully
experience the mountain, one week is barely enough time.
