On September 20th, 2013 a large avalanche struck Jordi Tenas’ tent during the night as he camped out near his beloved Torrecillas, in Las Leñas, Argentina.  The avalanche took Jordi’s life and left his good friend Txema buried for 15 hours before rescuers recovered him alive.

Jordi’s was a Catalan from Barcelona, Spain and had been visiting the Pyrenees mountains with his parents since he was a small child.

Jordi loved Las Leñas, had spent the past 5 seasons there, and even reported it as his home mountain when at competitions.  Jordi will be greatly missed by the freeride communities in Las Leñas, the Pyrenees, and beyond.

  1. Although I am not a skier and did not know Mr. Tenas personally, I can appreciate his incredible athletism and sheer joy of life exuded from him as he challenges, toys and conquers the mountains in this posted video. Always a sad to see an incredible, gifted individual taken in the prime of his or her life. To his family, friends and love ones, please accept condolences from a stranger for your deep lost.
