In this beautiful video by Ben Sturgulewski of Sturgefilm, Argentine skier Santiago Guzman explores Patagonia with his dog Conga. They stay at a stone cabin in Refugio Frey, a rustic resort that is 5,600 feet above sea level. The shelter is sparsely furnished but welcoming thanks to the DPS skis and Chaz the cat, in whose memory the touching video is dedicated. Setting out from this home base, Guzman and Conga go on once-in-a-lifetime adventures with man zigzagging down pristine powder slopes and dog leaping along behind. The short film showcases the breathtaking scenery and closeups of Guzman and his beloved pets. See the video for yourself on Vimeo.
