Las Lenas, Argentina is having the season that skiers and riders have dreamed about for years.
It’s been a bit windy and stormy this year (read: Marte closed, there are no trees here, white out, basically staying home and not skiing) but some long time locals are saying it’s the best season since 2011.
It’s been snowing for 3 days or so, then clearing up for a week or so. This is the perfect pattern for Lenas because you need those clear days to settle the avalanche danger and get deep into the incredible backcountry there.
In the next 3 days, Las Lenas is forecast to get 17″ of new snow. Then, it’s gonna clear up and be potentially perfect.
Lenas currently has 25″ of snowpack at the base, 35″ of snowpack at mid-mountain, and 47″ of snowpack on the summit.
September looks like it’ll be a month to remember in Las Lenas, Argentina.
