Personal log of a novice backcountry skier in his backyard
Finally, after another week of non-stop rain/snow, a rare bluebird day!!
Actually yesterday afternoon I tried to reach the Puerto de Artesiaga, but I had to surrender about 1km short of the destination (and shovel some room on the side of the road for a 3 point turn), due to snow and bad weather. Today I also had to shovel at the Puerto to make room for the car, as the snowplow hadn’t been around yet, but at least the road was clean. I was planning to spice things up and do a couple of yo-yos, to add up the “mileage” so to speak, but I finally only did one go. Shame as the snow, specially on the E -facing side going into the forest, was lovely.
There’s a lot of snow in the area (and some more to come during the weekend) so I think I’m going to visit the Saioa quite a few times in the next days. Please do bear with me.
