My skis are out of storage and mountaineering kit packed for my latest ski adventure to South America.
We have a vague plan to climb and ski some volcanoes as well as explore the lake-district area in Argentina, but with a month trip ahead, the overall objective is to go where the snow is.
What is even more exciting is that I get to wear the latest ski kit from Berghaus before the European winter season launch. This year I have gone for the Swedish block color look that was all the rage in the Alps last year and will continue to be a trend for the 2013/14 ski season. I am loving the bright ‘be seen’ yellow with contrast zips. I will be putting this kit to test on my trip for sure and hopefully able to send some photos and updates while I am away. Fingers crossed for more snow than my back garden.
My dog Archie likes the kit too. 🙂
Update 06/09/13: Cerro Catedral
After a long and restless flight into Argentina it was good to get out on the skis today. My world now feels right again. We visited the stunning Cerro Catedral ski resort in Patagonia where the terrain is really special with endless untracked freeride lines. We have another day here gets some altitude and warming up the legs before heading North to find some volcanoes to ski and the real adventure begins.
Update 07/09/13: Unexpected Patagonian powder day
We were kept awake all night by torrential rain in the local town and with temperatures expected to be above freezing we were not expecting much on the mountain today. So it was a real treat to arrive at Cathedral to find nearly 20cm of fresh powder. We skied toured our way off the back of the resort and into the backcountry to get some fresh tracks. It turned out to be a quite an epic powder day. Not bad for September:)
