Subimos el Volcán

Solo Splitboarding Mt. Lassen on a Perfect Spring Day



Dani had never before created a narrated outdoor experience 100% in Spanish, her second language—but it came naturally, and allowed her to connect with her South American backcountry ladies' ski community as well as with a notable segment of her bilingual or Spanish-only Instagram following.


Splitboarding is about community but it's also about knowing one's individual limits—and everything that happens from the minute you hit the trail to the moment you arrive back at home.

Join along for the adventure Dani never expected: a day of learning to own her truth.


This story, while fully narrated and created for a South American audience, also took on an American twist with subtitles and additional commentary on Dani's account. Both stories have their own unique, Geography-specific flair; give them a look and let her know what you think!

Hold on, chillax! We’re not trying to sell you on watching Dani’s video. Instead, these quotes from the Encuentro Pieles Instagram page might just convince you to do it anyway.
