For the 12th episode of the Carpe Diem series , the French splitboarder Aurélien Routens left with his girlfriend Agathe Margheriti to the north of Argentinean Patagonia, around Laguna Epulauquen, to enjoy the snow.
Aurélien talked about this project: “I had been to this area ten years ago, I bought a horse to explore these mountains where noone came to ride, according to the villagers. But the horse, although an ideal companion to cross these vast expanses, never allowed me to go further in my exploration.
I dreamed to come back in winter with the snowmobiles to truly enjoy these immense valleys. And it is only this year that it was possible thanks to a beautiful winter that has deposited a lot of snow in the valley floor, thus opening the doors of the Andes Mountains. “
