Get amped for summer snowboarding with SASS Argentina

For most, the long days of summer only bring thoughts of cold cans and the smell of seared beef over a bed of smoldering charcoal briquettes. But us snowboarders have a much tougher time shaking the images of January blower turns from our minds. SASS Argentina is the destination experience for those stubborn riders who cannot face the fact that our coveted season has drawn to a close, offering backcountry expertise from a veteran staff of riders including Andrew Burns and Chris Coulter. We’re not talking dirty slush laps in the park, this is full blown “shit your pants” big mountain summer snowboarding in the Andes Mountains where snow seekers learn from the best in terms of backcountry awareness and avalanche safety. Fortunately we have this gallery to drive the point home, but we think you just take our word for it.
