Las Leñas 2012 – Week 2

We’re back now.

Three weeks in Argentina, fifteen days at Las Leñas, done.

Throughout the second week of our trip, we spent more time exploring the Las Leñas side country, and all of us are very grateful to have stood in these spots and skied these lines. Take a look. We think you’ll understand why.

You don’t have to ski or board to be overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude and beauty of this place. But if you are a skier or boarder, this is a pilgrimage you simply have to make.
