Vulcán Villarica

Well, I left Anchorage last Monday in a snowstorm and travelled 3 consecutive nights to arrive in Pucon on Thursday morning at 8am and meet my old friend Scott and new friend Christian. Our intention is to spend 2 weeks skiing volcanoes in Chile . . .

So, true to KO form, I got off the bus and on my skis, as we headed to Villarica that afternoon. It was just over 5000 ft climb and descent in super good corn! Enjoy the view!

You were lucky to see the volcano from town - took me a week to get that view. It was always covered in clouds.

One of my most memorable ski runs was down the side of Volcan Villarrica - a lava chute with a thin ice crust, in the afternoon sun. Ahhhh...
