The celebration was an exceptional ski trip to a fascinating place with some great ski buddies. Kruser and I met Bob Yoder en route at Dallas, Vince in Santiago and Brett, Chick, Terry, and Paul in Farellones. We hailed from Alaska, Lake Tahoe, New York, Boston, Melbourne, and New Zealand.

Portillo is a unique place with its trail blasted out of the cliffs above Laguna del Inca, beautiful hotel, lift over the highway and Chilean switchback highway to the pass.
