Report from August 27th, 2019

Brought to you by Cerro Catedral

We knew the big storm was coming in mid-day so we arrived at Cerro Catedral early today.

We got up the Sextuple, but they had already closed the top by 9:30am.

This is a situation we love here.

We hiked up the ski resort to the top and have a private ski resort for the day.

The winds weren’t bad until we got near the ridge.

Then, the winds were howling.


We powered through the wind and snow searching for a small window of visibility and found it.

We pounced on it – it didn’t last the entire run.

The snow was fun and funky.

Wind-buffed, wind-pressed, fast, smooth, and a bit punchy at times.

The T-bar had opened so we ran to it.

As we waited to load a monstrous gust of wind came through that had us clinging to the railings.

“Ya esta!” yelled the liftie.

That was it.  

With that gust, the ski resort shut down for the day.

We happily enjoyed the rest of our 3,500-vertical-foot run and zipped home to our warm, dry abode.
