Spring time... Tronador time!

Sunrise with Torre Principal in the skyline

Each year when comes the spring and the snow starts to get mushy down low, we
head up to Tronador, which is higher (3554 mts)...
Luckly we had perfect corn conditions and a bluebird day in between two storms
There are 59 pics here... the last are the best...

End of the season, we still getting powder!

This last weekend of October (6th, 7th and 8th), we head out to Ref Jakob, a hut
that belongs to the system of huts in Bariloche area in Parque Nac Nahuel Huapi.
The team was formed by the machine, Hubert and me, the Guide, Jorge
We climbed together with my friend and colleague Ramiro Calvo and his 2 spanish clients...
all very strong ski tourers!
Succesfully we got to the summit in 3 hs and a half...
We ski powder in the upper part (south aspect) and perfect corn at 11am on the north faces!
Endless and perfect winter!
Heading to Cerro Cuernos del Diablo (Horns of the devil)

Climbing the last half hour!
Perfect conditions!

Cuernos del Diablo from Jakob hut, we skied the back side from the summit
