Unofficial Video: Skiing BIG Mountain Lines in the Las Leñas Backcountry

Wild winds parlayed into perfect pow in and around Las Leñas, and with this strange device known as a tripod a few cross-valley shots were captured.  Please note that this video is best enjoyed in full screen, as the human beings appear to be mere ants amidst the massive terrain!

Generally speaking wind is your friend, it brings about free refills and quenches our thirst for first tracks.  Except when it howls and blasts snow into the atmosphere to be vaporized and never again return to Earth’s surface.  Fortunately, in Las Leñas, the wind was only scouring the tops of the ridges on Sunday and Monday, leaving the bowls, chutes, and flutes pristine. It was all smiles and high fives as Entre Rios was entered and enjoyed.

Blue hour in Lenas, a spectacle of spectacles!

Conditions have since taken a turn in and around Leñas, with scouring winds yesterday, stripping the once pow blanketed landscape down to negative tracks and rock. The scouring was so severe that, while the Marte was open, everything off the top was closed except the groomer back to the bottom.  And the outlook isn’t overly fantastic, the forecast holding only milky skies and moderate winds.  Could this past week possibly have been the final good days in Leñas for the season?!? Yeah, it may have been…
