Personal log of a novice backcountry skier in his backyard
The thing is I’ve probably missed at least as many, which says a lot about the great winter we are having (tomorrow -at noon roughly- we are entering spring). Of all the days I have missed, not being able to ski on last week’s Wednesday, Thursday and Friday has been very painful. There was great snow -specially on Friday- even at low altitudes. Unfortunately a bad cold made me stay in bed… and as I was seeing the Scots girl in Barcelona this past weekend (she’s working on a project in Amsterdam since late January) and I didn’t want to be bedridden for the occasion, I was a good boy and looked after myself.
But seeing the videos and photos of what I was missing really hurt!
So anyway, once the strong W winds and rain from yesterday abated, this morning I made the drive to Artesiaga and was very happy to find out that there is still enough snow to skin from the car… although barely on some bits. I guess tomorrow will be the last Saioa for a while (maybe until next winter) as a heat wave is predicted for Thursday and Friday.
