Punta Bardini

Saturday came in warm and wet, so I was lazy and just nested. Overnight though the temperature dropped while the snow continued to fall. Ben, Ann P, Steve and I opted for Punta Bardini for ease of access and relative security.

Love the old growth winter scenery.

Punta is popular, so we enjoyed, for the most part, a previous skin track which took us about 3/4 of the way to the top.

The skiing was superb in cold, deep, low density snow. 

Steve gets his share.

For the first run we skied down through the old growth to the west Tele Bowl.

Ben deep in it with Steve and Anne waiting above left.

Ann floats on down.

and emerges from the trees.

Had to go up for another! Forgot how busy this place can get. Pretty tracked up by the time we left.

Did kick off a few small soft slabs on convexities. Not a big deal here, but bigger/steeper terrain would be an issue.
