VIDEO: High Speed Technical Tree Skiing in Patagonia Today

Miles Clark | | Conditions ReportConditions Report

I spent the day today skiing through these trees just about as fast as I could.

It got me into a couple tricky situations.  (Yes, I did break my knee cap in half crashing into a tree at high speed in Japan once.  thanks for asking…)

On my 5th lap through these trees, I took a fall and decided to call it.

So. Damn. Fun.

The best tree skiing on Earth.

Snow Report:

  • The snow was phenomenal today.  
  • Light, fluffy, deep, and super responsive snow.
  • It must have snowed another foot or more last night on top of the 5-feet or so we got the 48 hours before last night.
  • It’s been snowing non-stop here since early August.
  • The current forecast is for even more snow.
  • Snowing hard and windy with low to zero visibility most the day.

  1. Great video. Yesterday was our last day, fun to see your posts during our trip!
    Was curious about your thoughts on Portillo, met a guy yesterday at Cerro who told me after a day it’s rather boring.
    From everybody I talked to about skiing in S. America, Cerro and Nevados de Chilllan are really the best places down here (depending on the snow conditions obviously).

    1. Hey Peter. Thanks for the kind words.

      Portillo is sick. Never been, but it’s great.

      It’s dry up there, though. It’s about the same latitude as Tijuana, Mexico.

      If they have snow, go for it. If not, go where the snow is.

      thanks, miles
