The Bowl

Steep wide open bowl.  The bowl tops out in the 30 degrees so only ski this in times of pretty safe avalanche conditions.  If you go too far to the north there is a MONSTROUS cornice usually there so watch out for that.  You'll ski down to a bench which makes a great island of safety to watch your buddies from (pick your location wisely).  After that there are a few mellow tree shots that you can pick up further to the east that will add into the descent and take you right back to where the road first switchbacks.  Be careful though, even these tree chutes can have pretty high avy danger.

Details

South American is in the southern hemisphere, so their winter is our summer. Many people will travel there in the warmer months in North America to get some turns in on the big peaks.  There is an excess of backcountry skiing routes down there, but they are pretty hard to get to.Chile
