Tuesday evening, Las Leñas received a completely un-forecasted mini-dump. It snowed HARD for a few hours, and we ended up with about 6 inches of fresh snow on the mountain.
This light dusting just barely hid a lot of the sharks, and made for some classic dust on crust conditions. But, a Marte powder day is a Marte powder day, and there were a few really great turns out there. This snow fall was just what we all needed to keep us satisfied until the next storm arrives.
It looks like that next storm will be hitting us next week: Tuesday the 14th through Thursday the 16th. It is shaping up to be a big one – over 50cm forecasted up top. It’s still a week off, so far too early to be counting on it, but it certainly looks promising.
