The Rome boys are carrying on with their 12 Months project, and this August they’ve been in Chile, mingling in the locals and enjoying what they call Winter.
If you ask us Chile looks like a sweet place to spend your summer months, and it definitely was for Thomas Delfino and Len Jorgensen. Not only does the country host the Chilean Chinese downhill, but you can surf when there’s no snow, and enjoy Chilean apres – complete with local tipple ‘Pisco’ (that’s grape brandy if you’re not in the know).
The locals seem fully accommodating and really keen on their shred too, despite only having a cold season from June to September, and a police force who aren’t too keen on them hitting up the backcountry.
None of this holds back the Rome boys though, they rip small comps, fresh powder and backyard jibs in the outback – having a great time while they’re at it.
Remember a similar story from the Yes team’s Chile trip from a few years back?
