2 Feet of Perfect Snow & Sun in Bariloche, Argentina | August 17th, 2011

La Laguna, Catedral.  Bariloche, Argentina.

Two days of storms left Catedral two feet deep with blower snow to the bottom of the mountain. At least that’s how the day started. By the time I left the mountain at 1pm, the sun and heat were already working the snow pretty hard.

Gondola laps were deep, soft, and just silly fun. I only had time for one lap in La Laguna, but I was the first and it was better than it’s been all season. Two feet deep, light, smooth, perfect

I only had time for one lap in Laguna as I had a bus for Las Leñas at 3:30pm yesterday, August 17, 2011. It killed me.

But, now, after a 24 hour bus ride debacle, I’m in Las Leñas the mountain here is covered in 3 feet of snow, the skies are clear, and there isn’t a breath of wind. Tomorrow is going to be something special.

Bariloche’s forecast is clear and warm for a week.  Las Leñas’ forecast is clear and cold for a week.

We’re really hoping our Las Leñas dreams come true. The only things that could go wrong are: wind stripping the mt., the Marte not opening, or both.
