This summer, pro freeskier Elyse Saugstad will be guiding two-week-long summer ski camps in Las Lenas, Argentina. You’ll stay in a five-star hotel and spend 10 days skiing with Elyse. Afterward, you’ll spend three days wine tasting in Mendoza. We spoke to Elyse about wine and untracked South American powder.
