How do you score a day at a Patagonia ski resort all to yourself? Grab your randonee gear and poach Chapelco, Argentina the day before opening. If it’s a powder day like yesterday, you have just made an epic early winter adventure with your friends a reality.
PowderQuest AAGM ski guide Maxi Artoni has grown up skiing Chapelco Argentina since a young boy. He knows the resort and Chapelco backcountry quite possibly better than anyone out there. He is very fortunate to call this Patagonian gem of a ski area his home mountain. Here are some pictures from yesterday’s adventure and an entire ski resort all to themselves. This changes today of course, as June 24th is the official opening of Chapelco for the 2017 ski season. Judging by the photos and weekend forecast, it’s off to a great start.
