Report from September 10th, 11th, & 12th, 2019

Brought to you by Cerro Catedral

It’s been a little while since our last good snowstorm here.

The last good one was on August 28th.

We did get a bit of snow early this week that made for some powder, some crustiness, and some dust on crustiness.

The storm dropped only about 2″ of snow, but it did really help.

We went into the backcountry and found a bit of everything.

Some good powder turns, some ice, some breakable crust.

Hiking up was also interesting because we’d end up on hard snow that you could not skin upon.

Booting up and across traverses was often the move.

At this point, we’re waiting for snow or warmth.

Yesterday, September 12th, was very fun because it got warm and soft and slushy and fun all over.

I even got in my first 360º of the southern season due to the encouragement of Guti and Nico from Jibbin’.

Today should be another fun springy day and I’m headed out the door right now.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed for some big storms to roll in and get this place rockin’ again.

Last year, it snowed like the Dickens the last 2 weeks of September.

Maybe this year will be the same?
