A Snowcapped Pass


We made it to Chile! The border had been closed for many days due to the first seasonal storm. We were delayed in Mendoza two days longer than expected and we had just about given up on the border opening….but really…how could I give up on the chance to ski the Andes on my birthday! The 6 hour bus ride to Santiago was the most beautiful drive with snow capped mountains, a running river, and an amazing sky. The border crossing process was a bit of a learning experience…I almost was left behind with two other Americans. It’s a complicated story since most of it was in Spanish and Chilean Spanish is very difficult to understand BUT I made it with a stamp to prove it.

What luck that the first official day of the ski season is tomorrow…my birthday! I can’t think of a better way to spend my 32nd…skiing in the Southern hemisphere.
