Personal log of a novice backcountry skier in his backyard
Epic morning with great snow at the Saioa today. I had planned to go somewhere closer to home (and lower altitude) but when I saw how cloudless and bright the dawn was (and cold, with lots of frost at sea level), I knew the Saioa was going to be epic. And so it was. So much that I went thrice to the summit (first time ever). Shame about the wind affected snow on the N/NE side, but the S/SE was just so sweet. And not too crowded either. Looks like we are in for another run of good weather and snow on the hills nearby.
