Dear Winter Recreationists,

Spring skiing the Chilean Volcanoes. Dates Set for Sept 2013!


Chile Volcano Ski Adventure is online! 2013 Dates are set!

September in Chile...

In 2007, 08 and 09, I had the good fortune of guiding the mighty volcanoes of Ecuador for California Alpine Guides. These peaks are large and glaciated, and rise between 18,000ft – 20,000ft--and all of them are fun to climb. Walking down them is another story, though, and at the summit of every one of them, I always wished I'd brought my skis.

California Ski Company


California Ski Company Ramps Up For Winter, & Backcountry Skiing!
Put the California Ski Company Fall Parking Lot Sale on your calendar. It's coming soon!
This will be their 23rd annual Fall Parking Lot sale and there will be some killer deals.

Sale dates are:
August 25th & 26th
September 1st, 2nd, & 3rd
September 8th and 9th.
Hours are 10am to 6pm each day.

Why this sale is legit:
California Ski Company is a seasonal business and they don't do a big "spring closeout sale". They keep a full selection of gear in stock until the resorts close. Then they simply lock their doors for the summer hold on to their extensive inventory.
In the Fall, when it is time to re-open, California Ski Company kicks off the new ski season with their giant Fall Parking Lot sale. Not to mention... These guys have been doing ski gear for 22 years.
