Hey all you WildSnowers son Louie and I will be in Chile soon. Louie is flying in a few days for a fairly lengthy stay. I’ll be leaving at the end of this month for a two week visit. I’ll be staying in Chillán (Chile) area; Louie and his friends will be there as well, and also traveling around south.
Since we’ll both be down there I thought I’d hijack a daily blog post so we can request that any local backcountry skiers in southern Chile who’d like to give us contact info. Please do so by leaving a blog comment below with your Facebook page web address or otherwise. Please avoid leaving email addresses in public comments.
If you contact on Facebook please use private messaging rather than public comments.
Below are Louie’s and my Facebook URLs. We’d both love to meet more locals or experienced travelers who can help us find good accommodations, destinations, and partners for backcountry ski tours.
WildSnow.com publisher emeritus and founder Lou (Louis Dawson) has a 50+ years career in climbing, backcountry skiing and ski mountaineering. He was the first person in history to ski down all 54 Colorado 14,000-foot peaks, has authored numerous books about about backcountry skiing, and has skied from the summit of Denali in Alaska, North America’s highest mountain.
