video, photos, and words by Casey Earle

No new snow in 18 days, but I made the best of the metamorphosing snow in La Parva last weekend, after a couple of days of blasting winds and clouds. On Saturday, the low light was partly compensated by the dirty snow off piste, so you could see something while picking out the windpack lines amidst fields of hacked and tortured snow. Sunday the sun came out and everything looked so much better!

With some timely Chilean music to accompany the video (September is the “Mes de Fiestas Patrias”, or “Month of National Celebrations”), it is my first effort at piecing together my skiing videos. Hope you like it!
