We took the risk and went to Fuente De. It´s really close from Torrelavega. It was strange as I am used to spend a lot of gas when I went there. I did not only spend less time going there than Aviles-San Isidro but I also spent less gas.
There we went onto Canal de San Luis. It was cloudy, but not foggy at our height.
Some skiers going up towards La Colladina de las Nieves.
As we went higher the base part of the clouds reached some summits as the one we were going. It was pretty windy, so clouds moved fast.
There were also around 5cm of recent snow from 2100m fallen that night.
Contrary to what did other skiers we went on. There were just 100m left to the summit from the coll.
When we got the summit on foot, because the snow ended 10-15m below the summit, the weather gave us the best moment of the day and the sky cleared up (although there were clouds around)....
Sun even shone, lucky us! The beatiful first slope towards the coll with firm snow and 5cm of new snow where the wind hadnt blown them away...jaja
The second part was the best one in terms of recent snow. Wind had acumulated it in that face.
Getting closer to the end.
We had to put the track skins again to go back to El Cable. Blue sky in Liebana valley thank to the mountains which work as barriers against clouds.
By the time we took the cableway, it started snowing a bit. Then, we left Fuente De raining.
Basically, we couldnt have made the most of the day. We standed a slim possibility of skiing on Saturday with good weather conditions, and we finally had it.
