A day at the laguna

Yesterday I headed up to the Lopez trees again and enjoyed 45 cm of new snow, it was a little heavy but fresh and untracked, and with the new snow I was able to do longer laps and ended up shredding another 10 thousand. And then today cleared so I headed up and played it safe in the Laguna area. Which is an inbounds/outabounds area located 10 minutes of hiking up from the resort, or off the crazy poma lift that never runs. Luckily I got there before anyone and enjoyed 2 runs before the hordes arrived.

It was a social day, where I chatted up a bunch of different people from a bunch of different places, Sweden, Italy, Norway, States, Canada, and of course Argentina. I am not sure if anyone realized that I was slamming laps and had 10 540 feet done by 2. I do not know how many days I am off par but I am busting it to see if I can hit par by Sept 1st.

Thanks to Tony Girardin for his donation. Tony is a highschool friend who was pretty important in my development. I am sure he did not realize it but he helped me to realize that we should be who we want to be and let others decide whether they like it or not. At the time he showed me this independence through the Hacky sack, we would spend hours hacking it up and just enjoying ourselves. Thanks Tony.Check out his video  hoppythedeer, a pretty amazing story of them taking in a baby dear and living with it.
