Our trip didn’t quite go as planned, but we did get to do some skiing, albeit not on our intended face. The night before we were gearing up to climb the face a storm that was supposed to be rather small, dropped over a half meter of snow on us at 14,000 feet, effectively closing out any opportunity we would have had to climb the face anytime in the next several days. Cutting our losses, we packed up and headed on out to hang out in Mendoza til we flew home. Here are some of the pictures from the trip. Eventually the main trip report should be up on Blackdiamond.com
As I left Aspen it was dumping snow.

@aarondiamond13 "Skiing at altitude is like living out that sexual fantasy you never had the balls to try, you should probably do it with someone you trust, it's probably going to hurt a bit more than you think it is, And at the end, you aren't sure if that was the best thing or worst thing you've ever done." @rileysod skiing just below the 18,000 foot mark on Pico Polaco. #liveyours #liveskirepeat #liveclimbrepeat @blackdiamond @oakleyskiing @honeystinger #mustachesonmercedario
