I took the 340 peso bus to Los Condes neighborhood, where all the ski shops are on the way to the mountain. Bought some used semi-freestyle boards for 80 mil pesos, and then worked in the shop to mount my bindings. They were all very amused, and the head guy would not let me use the drill. He was the old master speaking only spanish. It was more than an amusing transaction. I was limited to "no, no sé, si, allí, aquí, ect... perfecto" and a lot of pointing. Not many telemark skis have been seen the area.
