JMK's Trip Bariloche, Argentina 1994
Trip Report: Skiing in Argentina

Bariloche, Argentina


Well, I'm back from a week skiing in Argentina. I have that familiar little scab on the end of my nose (from dripping in the frigid air), chapped corners of my mouth (despite efforts to keep myself coated with chapstick), and a good headcold.

In short, I'm in mid-winter form.

It was a good trip, tho not without problems. Gory details will follow.

My intent is to make a series of postings about the trip maybe over the next couple of weeks. I am inspired by Wes' outstanding series on his February trip to the Alps (it was Wes, right?).

But there are a few things I can't do:

  1. I'm not a tenth the skier Wes is, so be ready for a lower-level perspective.

  2. Bariloche does not compare with the high powered resorts Wes visited. Details later. I can say it was great skiing for August.

  3. I doubt I can write as well as Wes.
Still, I have an ability to blather almost endlesssly and will do just that. To facilitate easy exit, I'll provide a subject label along the lines of "Bariloche: Subject xxxyyyzzz." Further, I'll try to keep each posting fairly short.

BTW, I have received some encouragement to write this report. I'll try to satisfy both of you who requested the update.
