  • Lets Get Skinny - Club Lake - 18/10/15 | Telemark Phat
    warm and windy enough to melt a lot of snow and emphasised just what an average season we ve had There had been a freeze overnight and after a lap on the eastern face of Carruthers to let the snow corn up and let me warm up on skis I bought for meadow skipping not the days challenge we reached the summit of Carruthers at 11am Craig and I skied down elevator me a lot more carefully than Craig did It was survival skiing more than anything else for me but I was mostly linking turns till I got a third of the way down Elevator where it got narrower than I ve skied it before and rather firm Holding an edge on firm 45 O snow with ski gear not designed for that activity was a real challenge in both my technique and strength I was able to link two turns before needing a rest and the chance to psyche myself up for the next two turns At the bottom of Elevator it softened up and I was able to link turns without the rest Angus and I had another run from where Elevator opens up so Craig could get some shots from across the valley and then we hit a line down Lee I haven t skied down Lee in a long time but I had a stunning run down there on the skinny skis despite the unpredictable yard sales Angus and Craig on the walk to Mt Carruthers Angus with Northcote in the background Some meadow skipping while Elevator softened up Watsons Crags is finished for the season So many rests Photo Craig Half way down my skinny run of Elevator Photo Craig Elevator from the bottom Angus s tracks down the saddle between Carruthers and Lee

  • A quick Ski and the start of the long trip home - Interski - Part 9 - 17/09/15 | Telemark Phat
    dinner and booze and getting some beta on the best way to return to the walking track the top section through the short Legna would have been a nightmare to try and ski down I started my return trip at about 1pm The ski down did have a little bit of corn before I reached the trees but it was mostly still rock hard despite the altitude drop I didn t quite get the line right and had fun finding a way through the very tight small Legna Beech which grows as dense as Willow or Alder The bottom of the run was through the tall Legna which would be fantastic to ski through with some better snow The tall Legna don t have low branches and are perfectly spaced for tree skiing After another three hours of walking and more stunning vistas I d made it back to Cerro Catedral with perfect timing and stepped straight onto the bus to start my 52 hour trip back to Australia The Breakfast View Torre Principal Frey Frey and a view From Torre Principal on the left to Torre Piramidal Starting the day Ice The view from Lago Schmoll From Pico Bara on the left to El Pyramidal on the right My first run of two at Frey Torre La Lachuza with Torre Principal behind Torre Pico Bara Emilio inspecting the Solar Panels My second run down to Arroyo Van Titter El Volcancito and Catedral Norte The backside of Catedral Norte The top half of my second run Spanish Moss in the Legna Beech Pico Bara Looking east down the Van Titter Valley Cerro Ventana and Lago Gutierrez Cerro Loped and Lago Gutierrez More ice Piedra de Habsburg and Bariloche behind Lago Gutierrez Villa Catedral The base slopes at Cerro Catedral More
