Today was our first day of the 2018 southern winter.
We traveled for 60 hours to get to Bariloche, Argentina and it was damn nice to get here and get settled in.
The local ski resort, Cerro Catedral, is a bit light on snowpack, but the skiing was great up high today.
Catedral has a world class chairlift called Nubes (clouds) and it was damn fun yesterday.
The conditions were definitely perfect for getting us back into the flow of skiing after 6-weeks off (we hit closing day at Mammoth on June 17th).
I just banged laps up high on Nubes all day and it was a blast.
Locals are telling me that it’s been a cold, windless, somewhat dry first 1/3 of the season so far.
August is the biggest snow month here and the forecast is looking very wet for the next week.
Fingers crossed we come out of the coming week with a solid snowpack and some quality skiing.
