For snowboarders who like mountains...

This blog has been created with the purpose of compiling almost all my backcountry days from my first steps in the Cantabrican mountains to mountain ranges such as the Alps and the Pyrenees, and hopefully filled in the future with many travels in the pursuit of great rides and remote areas. Enjoy the reading!

Pico Pozua, 1936m 19-12-08 (C.Cantabrica)

For unknown reasons, I hadn´t done any peak yet. Until that date, I had gone a few times to San Isidro-Fuentes de Invierno but summitless.

We went until Ponton pass with Jermoso Man and some of his friend. We left the car in a bend of the road. The day was sunny and neat, although we had to cross the woods still in the shade.

After the woods, the Sun was waiting for us.

I was amazed. The view was amazing behind us.

It was so beatiful that I decided to make a video of the last meters to the summit.

The view got better in the summit. We could contamplate all the snowy mountains and how the fog remained in the valley. I have never seen the same conditions yet. We were privileged!

Pablo and me went down skiing by the south face...

The video shows that parto with a actually good snow.

Our prints...
Later we turned to the east toward the woods again.

The last view of the Pozua peak. It was a nice day.

Off-piste in Fuentes de Invierno 23-12-08

More pics in Fuentes de Invierno taken with the good camera of Robo.

Automatic shoot.

Finally a small video of one of the off-piste.

Pico la Carva, 2162m...Going higher! December, 22nd 2008

That day we drove through Pajares pass. The point of departure is the small village of Tonin. We tracked up through the Cuadra valley, and later turned to the right.

Once we had turned, we had to follow over a wide ridge till the summit. I didn´t know this summit, because our first intention was to go to Estorbin. Later, we realised that Carva peak was close to Brañacaballo peak (this is well-known).
The summit was the tipical Cantabrican peak, with especially view of the region of Central Mountains. The wind was quite strong.

For the descent I didn´t choose the best option. We descended on the same way we used to go up, and this was the worst option. We had to have descenced on the wide slopes, which appear in the right part of the up photo.

In spite of choosing the worst part for descending the top part, from 1850 to 1550 was getting better. The day had been worth.

Tubos de Entresierres, making the most of the snowest Fall ever! (Fuentes Invierno - Noviembre 2008)

Some interesting slopes in Fuentes de Invierno. We paid the forfaits, and we were almost all the time enjoying the different off-piste. As I said in elder entries, that Fall was fabolous.
