As we enter our last week of Kings and Corn and wrap up our Alaskan skiing for 2011 with a crew from Warren Miller, we’re already starting anticipate the high altitude powder to be found in Valle Nevado Chile. While it’s been great skiing world class corn, the prospect of powder around the corner is just too exciting to ignore. We’ll be heading to Valle Nevado from late July through September, running 3 heli ski sessions with EpicQuest guide Greg Harms.
We love Valle Nevado for a lot of the same reasons we love out Girdwood operation. Not only is there hundreds of thousands of acres of world class heli skiing served by a ultra professional guide corps, but there is fantastic lift served skiing for days when there is inclement weather that can keep you from flying. Of course, the Chilean wines are ridiculously good and that doesn’t hurt either. Greg Harms recently put together this collection of photos from Valle Nevado. Check out the slide show. We’re ready to head to the southern hemisphere and the high country of Chile. We hope you can join us for deep, dry powder as we continue to Live the Epic Life.
