Catedral ski resort in Bariloche, Argentina experienced an impeccable day today.  No wind, warm temps, good snow, great times.

Southern aspects are still holding chalky, powdery snow.  North faces have fun sun cooked pow.  In bounds skied great today in the sun.  Nubes was skiing well, Del Bosque even had some huckable cliffs in the soft afternoon snow.

Our crew climbed up to the spires in La Laguna and dropped off the back – “Tower Chute” – for a long run into the Van Titter valley.  The snow was powdery, chalky, and damn fast.

The views from the mountain were all-time today with the lake and spires and violently blue sky contrasting each other brilliantly.
