Ski Arpa

Met up with Fernando on Sunday night back in Santiago. We headed up to Los Andes yesterday and today we skied at the cat ski operation, Ski Arpa. Unfortunately, not the best day of skiing, they got a lot wind up at Arpa so the snow was pretty much wind packed. Still, great scenery and fun hanging out with the Cincinnati ski club.
