    Exclamation Paging SA crew: Las Lenas getting Pounded!

    Edit: this is the 2004 TR from Las Lenas

    We received about 2 feet of snow today and it is still dumping hard, even sideways at times. winds have picked up and the forecast is calling for the snow to continue until Tuesday. It´s a full on Interlodge effect- bombs have been going off all day in the alpine. The stoke level is unbelievably high right now. We´ve got Whistler, Alpental, Jackson, Snowbird, and Silverton representing in the house awaiting to cut loose as soon as the bull wheels start cranking. Sunday could be one more weather day, but we are hoping to at least get Caris open for some afternoon turns. Looking like maybe Monday could be the earliest for Marte- but it´s tough to say at the rate the snow is falling.

    WE HAVE SOME SPARE BEDS- PM me if you are interested and want details.

    If anyone is nearby, get here now. Monday-Tuesday looks to be like ´the day´ Definitely was a lack of base, but it is being made up for in a hurry. Nobody is in town as many hotels have shut down for the season and gringos have also left which means extremely little competition for the fresh. After receiving a Santa Rosa blessing in Mendoza, Ullr has teamed up to deliver. Searching for a cable to update with pics. Will try an upload tomorrow if on another weather day (otherwise time to git some )

    43cm possible for tonight, what's that, 1.5 feet? Not bad on top of what has already dropped. Sounds like fun

    FKN´IEVE!!!!!!!!!!!

    Holy shit!!!! So much fun today. Was greeted at the top of Cathedral by my long lost friend Knee D. P. Fresh. Spatulas were in effect...so purty. And best of all it´s still snowing. It lightened up for an hour or two and then the storm started to pick up again. Shit´s gonna go off if we get a couple more days of this.

    Must find data cable... didn´t take many pics today though... snowing all day... no friends on a powder day... I´m sure you understand...

    Arty,

    Arty, glad to hear you are having a good time. Maybe you should postpone you job search for a year so you can go again next September.

    if this is the same Gunnar from Squaw that got 10th in the KW comp last year, tell him to come back and redeem himself on the retaining wall huck at Baker.


    edit: and have fun down there... so jealous.

    UPDATE

    Weather day in Las Lenas. 160cm plus at top of Marte as of 8am, still dumping like crazy. Super cold forecast -25 celsius for wednesday. Snowed so hard yesterday on lower mountain my tracks were covered with each return trip up. nobody is in town, it is absolultely empty.

    Artie, sorry we didn´t catch up in LL- hope you are enjoying the huge dumpage in Bariloche. Tell Gunnar we said hello from Lenas. this place is going to swell with people from Mendoza by Saturday. Next couple days will be like Private Lenas. FKNA!

    On my way!

    Hey Squirrel: I´m in the bus station right now and will be getting on the 8 PM to Lenas, arriving tomorrow. Guess I´ll miss the AM but there should be plenty of fresh left I´ll dump my stuff at su casa and hopefully you´ll see me lapping Marte. I´m easy to spot: tall, orange jacket, helmet with devil horns.

    To T & L: it was dumping at the airport when I left Ushuaia; the flight was delayed but I got on it. Tomorrow should be sick at Cerro Castor, go get some! T: I owe you in so many ways, brother. Shoot me a PM or email with your addy. And both of you, finish your breakfast before you leave

    To splat and TeleRob: hope you both made it back safe.

    I´m out. T minus 18 hours to Marte!
