It’s been a great season in Bariloche, Argentina. It essentially snowed here every few days from July 25th until September 15th. Which was ideal, because when it doesn’t snow here the ash blows in from the Chilean Volcano that is still erupting. Every second clear day and beyond sees tons of volcanic ash in Bariloche. As soon as a storm blows in, the ash is gone.
Volcanic ash doesn’t feel great in the lungs. I can attest to that as I’m breathing it right now and it feels like crap.
The storm rhythm was fierce this year preventing much ash from entering town, but now that spring has sprung, the ash has settled in and there is no end in sight.
Thus, Unofficial and our reports from Patagonia are outta here. We are headed to the Patagonian east coast to poke whales with sticks and capture a penguin.
Here is your final conditions update:
“Killer spring skiing conditions exist along with literally Killer Ash conditions. As long as you don’t breath, you’ll be fine.”
We have one last video of the last powder day here coming out tomorrow and that should be about it.
Here’s our best 3 videos from the summer down here in Argentina:
