I headed out into the backcountry from Cerro Catedral ski resort in Bariloche, Argentina yesterday.
I planned on skiing some north facing aspects that would be getting good sun and should be soft after the previous day’s few centimeters of snow and big winds.
Once I got up top and touched the north facing snow, I knew it was going to be a good day.
The snow was smooth, supple, supportable, just soft enough, and fast. A sort of wind blown, wind pressed, slightly sun cooked goodness.
I zipped down a gully that lead to a short chute.
The snow flew far on every turn.
I was elated at the bottom.
I ran back up and did another line further skiers right.
This line was another big gully that lead to a tighter chute that had a small air.
Again, I was pumped after the ski.
I wanted more, but my body was tired.
I skinned back to the ski resort and headed home with a big smile.

I almost didn’t believe you about the condors until I saw them today. Glad Nubes was running strong today.
