Over the weekend the 3 Valleys transitioned from most-of-the-day-hardpack to serious freeze/thaw. I tried skiing off piste both days, hunting windpack lines on old tortured snow, with the result recorded here:
with some timely Chilean music to accompany it (September is the "Mes de Fiestas Patrias", or "Month of National Celebrations"),
First half is ugly ugly as they would say here, low light compensated by dirty snow, but in the second half the sun came out and it is much nicer.... Sorry for the amateurishness!
