Didn’t feel like getting out of bed

But I am sure glad I did. Day 9 in a row and feeling like a break, so it was easy to lie in bed and think up a tonne of excuses. None seemed valid enough and Dave, Bryce and I headed up Volcan Nuevo.  Dave’s roommates , Sean and Sarah, used the lifts and were ahead of us and we finally caught up to them. Did I mention that it was windy around here?

We all made it to the top and enjoyed the summit together and then Dave and I headed down the SE chute, the first line I skied here. I had hopes it would be good  but it was wind slabbed, but ski-able.

Cool line though, I wish it was as good as the first time.

I am starting to understand  the mountains around here,  its more about being out and experiencing the mountains than the powder experience. Its about ski mountaineering, and not powder turns. Though you may get some sometimes its not a recurring theme. Luckily I just love being out there.

After Nievo, Dave and I skinned up Viejo and summited under 80km winds and then skied the West down to the Aqua Caliente river and toured back up and home. 9300 ft of good times.

    hmmm sounds to me a lot like skiing here in the Rockies! Why do you think us Albertans defect to BC whenever possible? Keep up the good work!

    same reason us Quebers change our last name from Cote to Hill and move to Revy.
