....snowing again today so it's a down day. Got hooked up again yesterday with a few cat rides to the top of the Marte (the Marte lift has been closed for days) and had another beautiful powder day. We are finally getting to ski some sick lines too. Great snow conditions right now. Here are a few pics. They should be sequenced.....the 1st is a cool line we scoped that turned out to be just that. The next set is from Cerro Martin, a proud line around Las Lenas. More snow falling and the big Freeride Comp is next Tuesday. It should be a great event and after what I've seen the gringo's hucking so far we won't be disappointed. Seth may fore run the event and Kai Peterson is around too so NA guns are representin'. I am sadly heading home right after that despite more storms lined up. I'll check in again after the next storm.
