There is an excellent documentary about this called Samuel in the Clouds, about one of the brother’s mentioned here trying to continue taking care of the resort now that it is shut down. Highly recommend! SAMUEL IN THE CLOUDS, documentary by Pieter Van Eecke (Bolivia) Felix Blume


This looks incredible! Thank you for sharing!

Great Post :grinning:

I do not believe there is a single glacier on which people ski. This was not a melting glacier.

Hello, where can I find this movie to watch? :slight_smile:
