Approach with horses to ski powder in Patagonia

Last weekend we ski guide 3 days of great powder in the Andes
we skied part of Vn Casablanca in a total whiteout, then
we climbed great Volcano approaching with horses,
what made a total Patagonia ski touring adventure

Summit and crater of Volcan in Chile

Snow conditions were so good that we skied twice,
one of them at sunset

After horses, skinning up to the hut in great Andes powder conditions

The hut and the summit

Jose and Juan, were the Gauchos who
helped us to carry gear up, check boots!

Back to Mountain guide in Patagonia

Happy to be back home to mountain guide our beloved Patagonia,
after a nice vacation enjoying the granite of California, is time
to relax the forearms and get our legs strong!

Here some pics to share

Half Dome, a gift from the Gods, this year we climbed for 2nd time in 13 hs pitch by
pitch no jumaring, nothing if you compared to the records of these days

Marcos, my good friend in Atlantis, Needles, California..
One of the best routes I have done, excellent granite

The Needles, Howard spire, is a esthetic as can be,
The needles are magic, it is like a fairy tale location with the lady
that gives you cookies at the top of the hill on sunday afternoons
Don´t miss it!

We have few trips starting early Aug!!
