|NWBoarder||Looks sick Karasene! Next summer is Disneyland for the kid, but the summer after that is looking like it will have to be somewhere quite a bit further south. Winter in the summer looks to good to pass up forever.|

Here's a clip from today at sitting at the top of the bowl.
"This was right before our first run today. Hiked up into the bowl through some serious winds. Was pretty intense weather this morning. We were sitting just above a cornice we had to get past which broke when one of the guys was testing the stability of things. Awesome run tho!"
It hadn't snowed in 4 days in this footage.. its mainly all just wind whiped into the bowl. Its DUMPING right now tho. Tomorrow there's going to be lots of coverage in there.

Yeah that is true. The sport is way behind down here. Resorts don't do any snow blasting and there are a lot of dangerous areas even in bounds. The guys with SASS were saying how lucky the Argentines have been so far.. A lot of guys drop together in a group the guys here are afraid one day they're going to hear about an entire gang bang of dead skiers off one of these mountains. For the most part many of them just follow our head guy.. They know if they see him hike and take a line it's safe. Others just go off and do what they want. No bueno.
They're calling for snow tonight and tomorrow!!! Hoping to finish the week with a couple more powder days! Very excited.

Very nice Karasene! Psyched you are having a great time. One of these years I am going to put together a summer trip down there. I should have done it when I was much younger.
As for the dude in an avalanche. Gear really doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot. It's a last ditch effort to save your or someone else's bacon if it all goes south. Obviously if he was carrying gear he would have probably of been thinking about the danger and maybe not have chosen that line. He is lucky to get out relatively unscathed. Especially since he triggered a slab that broke above him. More often than not that situation ends badly, even if the victim was carrying avy gear.
