Hi Jerry,
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.
Colin
