BD Sales Rep Craig Hatton powder hunting in Chile
Craig Hatton is one of Black Diamond's Sales Reps and also one of our most stoked skiers, frequently making summer trips down to South America to get his off-season powder fix. He sent us the following email and photos a few days ago and, yes, Craig we are jealous!

How's everybody doin up there? Well, we've been here in Portillo for 2 days now. Not a ton of snow here but we got 20cm last night and they are expecting a huge 1-2 meter dump tomorrow. We are rushing out of here tonight to Mendoza form some wine then quickly down to Las Lenas before the big storm hits.
Here's a few pics from our day yesterday. The area skiing was pretty shotty so we climbed up La Roca and dropped in the Super C couloir...pics attached. A great 4500 ft. shot. It was pretty chalky snow and super carvable snow...great views of Aconcagua from the top after a sweet 3000 ft. boot.....glad I had my Whippet.
I'll check in again after the Pow! Megawatt day approaching.
