As the Pro Flies

Shadowing a Pro Freeskier Through the Andes

That’s something you’re about to do.

But not before spending a week tearing down slopes in the shadow of a ski goddess.

Manifest your destiny for Las Leñas Ride with a Pro, a 10-day odyssey where you’ll conquer Argentina’s most majestic slopes with a freeski world champion, incongruously followed by a horseback tour of wine country, taking reservations now for August.

And here’s how this’ll all pan out for you...

You’ll freeski with a crazy blonde.
Elyse Saugstad. She’s the pro skier who’ll be upping your off-trail game by escorting you to 200,000 acres of backcountry terrain. She’s also a survivor of one of history’s worst avalanches, so... pay attention.

Then you’ll ride a horse and drink wine.
Because eventually, you’ll need rest. That’s where the horse comes in. It’ll be your four-legged shuttle between the vineyards tucked away just a few miles from the mountain. Pro tip: horses hate when you spill malbec on them.

And you’ll be filmed the whole time.
The epic ski-and-horseback movie. It’s a new film genre. Starring you. Because turns out, all the laughter, tears and whinnies of your trip will be compiled on a DVD by a professional video team.

They’ll even include English subtitles.
