The Endless Winter: SGT gets ready for deep snow in the Southern Hemisphere

The Northern Hemisphere is almost one month into summer and we’re all jonesing for what’s to come once the first snowfall hits. For some, summer is a getaway from the cold temps and, after last winter, a way to forget the season ever happened. But for SGT and its “campers,” summer is just an excuse to head south and enjoy copious amounts of snow that blankets the Northern Patagonia region of Argentina.

People often ponder the differences in snow camps. Do you head to one of the many camps at Mt. Hood or head up to the Glacier in Whistler? But SGT Argentina isn’t necessarily a camp; it’s more of a life changing experience. From exploring the local Argentine culture, partying at one of the many après or nightlife spots (18+) to shredding the vast backcountry terrain of the Andes, there never seems to be a dull moment.

Partnering up with organizations like The Levitation Project, MTN Approach, RED Protection, BCA, anon Optics, Contour and many others, SGT has brought some of the best products, services and travel to one of the most exotic ports in the Andes. The coaches, guides (Andrew Burns, Michelle Parker, Skylar Holgate, Chris Coulter, Garrett Russell, Nick Slechta, and more) and staff live, eat, ride, share, socialize and party with each and every camper.

Now this isn’t your typical camp you’re rolling to. This is the Andes, with some of the best terrain in the world. Depending on the weather you’ll either be trekking thought the backcountry building pow kickers or enjoying the famous mystical trees of Cerro Catedral. It’s almost guaranteed that you’ll come back with stories of the most epic line of your life.

If you’re looking for a change of pace and to continue the stoke of winter, the Southern Hemisphere is the place to be. From the local culture to the deep snow pack, Argentina is a once in a lifetime chance that many dream of. It might be a grueling 14 hour flight away, but for us die-hards it’s worth it for an endless winter.
