BMW’s and starter castles-
foul San Juan skies
Well, spring is already in the air, and it has been dry as a bone. Andina says they are at a 70% deficit, and their records go back to ’54. Nevertheless, there is still some good skiing to be had in the Alta Cordillera. These pictures are from a ski tour in Bermejo, up near the Argentine frontier above Portillo. My partners were Diego’s sons (that’s Diego Chico in the foto) and a couple of their friends. Fun times and a beautiful day. Getting ready for a last trip to Patagonia tomorrow. Then back here for a few days, a despedida asado on the 17th, then back to Silverton on the 20th. Hopefully we can catch up some time soon after.
Take care, and hope all is well.
