Don’t go thinking I just met my bride-to-be. No, La Rosa is a van and a guy named Sebastien owns her. She is big, red, has duallies on the back, and a grained-wood interior. She has a sink, dual benches, storage, and, with a little effort, you can fit a dozen shreds and gear in her to go riding at Termas de Chillan. A worthy object of affection indeed.
Termas de Chillan lies a five hour train ride and two hour bus ride south of the Chilean capitol of Santiago and is where I spent the last three days with the K2 Snowboards crew. Despite warm weather, rain, snow, sleet, and limited sleep, we managed to find a lot of fun features to ride amongst the expansive, rolling volcano upon which the resort is built. From the dragon’s tail, a gnarled, curve tree to natural quarterpipes and gully slashers, Termas delivered in less than epic conditions. It was three fun days of riding on sketchy, curved pomas and dilapidated doubles with trees trying to hook your board off and nights gambling in the casino at the resort amongst the Chilean bourgeoisie.
But three days isn’t long and we are now back in Farellones for three more days of sun-drenched riding at the triple resorts of La Parva, Valle Nevado and El Colorado, where road runs beckon and a reasonable park keeps the jib-friendly occupied. But it feels like something is missing—riding the resort shuttles just seems to lack a bit of character after our time in Chillan.

Viva La Rosa—and here’s to more good riding in the southern hemisphere.

I just got home from a trip to Whislter with a couple of the “People Crew” for a session at Camp Of Champs. Boarding was fun, but it was hot, hot, hot up there. Summer boarding bro. Check the phots Below.
The commute to the Glacier includes 2 chair rides, a bus, and another chair ride
The Camp Of Champions
Seth Huot took some paint balls to the bow, the elbow
Whistlers new multi-million dollar “Peak to Peak”. The verdict = “kind of weak
That dude in the sweet kit is Hans Ahlund. Hans is from Sweden, and I thought his kit was worth blogging
So I went up to Seattle last week on my way to Camp of Champs, and the weather was amazing! We were going to go to a free Mud Honey show and then a friend invited us out on his boat. Needless to say we went on the boat. How does that song go again…………………………?
