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.
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.
