Gearing Up for the Southern Hemisphere

Ski essentials that scored high in versatility and packability on a trip to Portillo

For most, skiing in the summer means traveling across the globe, taking off in 80 degrees and landing squarely in winter. The long-haul and drastic change in climate can prompt skiers to try to pack everything but the kitchen sink. But if you’re traveling halfway around the world to say, Portillo, Chile, you don’t have the luxury of packing your entire closet. Instead, you’ll need to whittle down to a few but worthy pieces that will cover all your bases. Here are some essentials that scored high in versatility and packability on a recent trip to Ski Portillo.
