Leaving Las Lenas
Well my last days in Las Lenas came and went quickly. My second to last day I headed out with Jesse and focused on a fun line with her rather than an extreme line. I realized that she is not ready for a 50 degree couloir but she was ready to summit a 12 000 foot peak.
From there we skied a fun slope, something that Jesse could shred and enjoy versus be gripped and sideslip. Its called xenia and was a beautiful alpine line. After the fun brother-sister run we enjoyed lunch together and she headed home and I headed back to the top.
from there I skied Leucemia, the tight couloir that I was glad I did not drag Jesse down. It was a steep and wild line that was really fun, it had been skied by three people but was still nice and soft.
From there I toured back up and summitted Cerro Negro and then headed up to Toricellas to take a look at the terrain there.
Pretty cool, lots of lines, of which I skied Este 1, a protected south east slope. Great turns to finish of a fun week of adventure in Las Lenas.
I have been blown away by the potential of this place, huge terrain, endless mountains and big time terrain. I hope to return one day when the snow is deep and the lines filled in.
Now we are on the beach in Chile enjoying some family time till they head home and leave me familyless. Great to get out of the mountains and refresh myself.
