Hi everyone, I have been out backcountry touring everyday and just haven't found the time to get an update out. Anyways, the snow is fantastic. The month is equivalent to about May down here and its been snowing everyday - even down at sea level. I have been riding the backcountry of the southern most city in the world - Ushuaia and it is epic. These Patagonian mountains are gorgeous and the lines are plenty. I could live here year round and find a great new line each day. With a drive through town you will see some of the most perfect "U" shaped valleys between the mountains! Yesterday, my rope team and I met up to do one last glacier travel practice. We all seem to be dialed in which is very important. For those of you who don't know much about rope teams - on a rope team, everyone holds each others life in their hands should anyone fall into a crevasse of get blown over and exposed peak, etc. Everyone must be in tune with each other and we move together as a team. It is one of closest teams required compared to other sports and you must put your full trust into others. We all have to take steps at the same time to keep the rope from getting tight or having slack. I am really looking forward to sharing these turns with these guys on the rope. They are a great group from Colorado, California, and Jackson Hole. Big Mountain Jeremy Jones is also now down here in route to Antarctica to film for his new movie Steeper. Everyone is pumped. We now all get to charge the roughest seas for 50 hours with our first stop off point being Deception Island. The sea forecast is for about 30 feet on Saturday along with 50 + mph winds. Powder Lines, Sean Busby
