This time around I did not see any other splitboards. So, I considered myself the ambassador 😀I arrived at LLs on Saturday, August 27th during the first day of the storms. Because it snow almost the entire time I was there (5 days), I never got off piste. I did end of skinning up under the Volcano lift for some great power and hiking around where lifts were not running. But visibility was limited because of so much white light.The snow was great, the crowds were not.I stayed in Malargue, about 80 Km south west of LLs. And drove back and forth each day. It was way cheaper, got food, and no crowds. Think steaks and trout. Steaks and Trout!On day 5 I returned to San Rafael to ditch the rent a car and begin by 15 hour bus ride south with Andesmar. I have to say that was the best bus ride of my life and cost only about $40 in what I would call Ã¢â‚¬Å“executiveÃ¢â‚¬Â September 15, 2005 at 8:30 pm #583072 Wyomingsplit_ride 663 PostsI am ready to fly South…now who can front me a ticket and some spending cash! 😀 September 15, 2005 at 9:21 pm #583073 montoya 46 PostsNJAB, great trip photos!
