volcan lonquimay ski descent

August 24, 2006

By the time Pat and went to ski Lonquimay we were in an awesome groove. We had a fantastic time skiing off hte summit of Lonquimay and hit it at the right time. It was a great end to the volcano tour.

Lonquimay. We climbed and descended the right hand flank.
