HOME WITH AGGY FERRARI
HOME WITH AGGY FERRARI
Home for the holidays gives those extra 'winter feels' when you are surrounded by fresh powder. It's the fresh powder in Patagonia that calls her home and has allowed to fall deeply in love with the richness of the mountain and chill of the great outdoors.
Here is the scoop that we got from Aggy when visiting her hometown:
HOW DID PATAGONIA BECOME A SNOW HOME FOR YOU?
We are here because this is where I travel to every winter. I don’t live near a mountain, so Patagonia becomes my second home. It’s the place where I can snowboard, hike, play with my dogs, chill by the bonfire, and enjoy the outdoors.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT CERRO CATHEDRAL THAT CALLS YOU HOME?
Cerro Caterdal has a special place in my heart because it was the first place I spent an entire winter season. My first time on this mountain I fell in love. It has stunning views, playful terrain, and a great lifestyle off the snow as well. Barlioche is where I met my husband Thomas and all of our best memories are here of falling in love. We brought our 2-month old child for his first winter here. We pack up in Buenos Aires and drive the 18 hours and make it home for the winter. My siblings come, friends, and the dogs. Because home is wherever our dogs are. They’re family, pure joy.
TELL US THE FUN DAY TO DAY.
It’s a wonderful place to live, a wonderful place to visit. The wind can blow hard and close the old lifts but you are never without a hike to go on, a stunning view to find. It’s a low-key lifestyle. After a good ride we gather at Tage, grab a bite to eat or go to a brewery in Bariloche. The snowboarding community, especially women, is growing year by year, and I love to be part of the community that helps it grow.
Snowboarding keeps me playful, free, and creative. And this mountain is the source of that, it’s pure bliss. I respect the power of nature, and it reminds me how small we are: the smell of the trees, the silence that allows you to feel the snow falling, the heat of the sun on a cold day. I feel blessed for every moment I get to spend on the mountain.
Thank you Aggy for letting us cruise around your home with you! Seeing your passion for the care free spirit of snowboarding and love for your home is inspiring. We hope those reading along are hitting the slopes this season, and may you find yourself falling in love with it just as much as Aggy.
