What's in this Area?
This is a moderate climb but due to the southern aspect and the lower elevation, the snow is often melted out and sunbaked towards the bottom of the trail. Not a very good place for spring skiing once it gets warm. This canyon is access to a lot of other terrain back in the drainage including couloirs and other steeper terrain.[more]
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
