Well, conditions are not great in Las Leñas right now. It has gotten really warm, and things are really melted out. We may get a little bit of snow, but it is looking like the Santa Rosa will not happen this year. Without fresh snow, it is going to be hard for Las Leñas to stay open past the next couple weeks.
However, until things warmed up, the past couple weeks have given us some really good skiing. Here is a video of skiing an area called Torrecillas last week:
Torrecillas is one of those zones that makes Las Leñas a special place. It is a basically a wall of spines and couloirs with giant spires rising above them. There are not many zones in the world that are as aesthetically cool as Torrecillas. The lines are not really long or really steep, but they sure are pretty. As an added bonus, it the snow is pretty much always powder out there.
