You’ve heard me say it a hundred times, but I just can’t seem to say it enough: SASS Argentina is always the highlight of my summer. Family, friends, epic powder and mind-blowing terrain in one of the most interesting cultural settings you can imagine. I’ve been fortunate to ride all over the world, and I can honestly say there is nothing else like it…anywhere. Get down here.
