First Day Skiing -- Tierra del Fuego

Today we completed a practice run by skiing the Martial Glacier outside Ushuaia.  Three of us, our gear, and a driver squeezed into a tiny Toyota taxi that took us to the base of the 4000 foot mountain.  We hiked the lower part and then skinned up the upper part.  We had a great view of Tierra del Fuego and the ski down was amazing on nice Spring corn snow.  It was a great test run of our gear.
