Aug 1, Ski Arpa, Chile
« on: 08/01/11, 06:22 PM »

Had an killer day at Ski Arpa today, the first day of August.

Arpa is a tiny little cat operation a couple hours out of Santiago de Chile. I'd highly recommend it if you have the time, inclination, and money.

Its pure skiing:

"Trail map."


"Parking lot."


"Base lodge."


"Avalanche control."


"Views." (This is the Mercedario group - a nod to the Skoogs.)


"Skiing."


"Home run."

I was hoping to tack a day at Arpa on the end of my Portillo trip. Looks great if still a bit bony. Here's hoping for snow for both you and I.

The "Parking Lot" photo reminds me of a few ski areas in Argentina and Chile. Keep the reports coming.

How do they feel about speedos and bikinis on the slopes?

Keep the reports coming, thanks Drew.
