Eddie Bauer guide Chris Coulter spends his summers coaching and guiding in Patagonia for SASS Global Travel, showing campers the lines in the Bariloche backcountry. Normally his migrations take him north as soon as the working season is done, but this summer Coulter took an extra week to get out for a summer winter camping mission via splitboard into the vast National Park backcountry that surrounds the Cerro Catedral ski area in Bariloche. The new addition to the Jones Snowboards team checked in after he slid back into flip-flops and the Northern Hemisphere with this gallery from his southern winter camping experience. —LYA Editor

L to R: 1. It was really nice to have an extra week after the camp was done to get out with my friends/coworkers. I love getting out with them and had not gotten to ride much with during our season at Cerro Catedral. 2. As the sun sets I think to my self it funny what my friends think a good time is. I feel lucky to have such great friends. 3. It was a windless evening, a pleasure to be on this ridge during the alpenglow.
Top: With the heavy pack and firm snow it was a perfect trip to test out the skinning crampons on my Spark R&D splitboard bindings.
L to R: 1. As I say farewell to Argentina and close friends the last several seasons, it gets harder and harder to say goodbye. To ease the exit, Mauri has his friends and coworkers at SGT over for a farewell asado. 2. Garrett makes some chimichurri for his amigos at the asado. 3. Thanks Argentina looking forward to the next time, miss you already!
