BARCACIU SKITOURING, BARRYVOX LIMITED EDITION

BARCACIU SKITOURING, BARRYVOX LIMITED EDITION.

Last weekend we managed to reach Barcaciu mountain hut in Fagaras Mountains. It has becomeΒ  tradition to go ski touring here each winter. Barcaciu is holding an event, each year around this time, event aimed to promote the ski touring possibilities in this area of Fagaras Mountains. We could not be present at the event so we decided to go 1 week earlier and make our own limited edition of Barcaciu Ski Touring, Barryvox Edition πŸ€ͺπŸ‘ŠπŸ».

It was a full weekend and did almost everything that we wanted in terms of ski touring. This winter really delivered big time. We had some top score powder and some good weather with no wind. A little problem with visibility on Sunday but we managed anyway. Because of the grate amount of snow this year, the couloirs are very generous, larger then before and you can descent greater. But all this comes with a risk and you have to be cautious and know your way around the area. We did some cool descents in powder and on Sunday we played a little with some equipment from Mammut that Mihai had for testing and presentation. Cool stuff, light but reliable equipment as I have seen so far.

After making a snow profile and fool around with an avalanche backpack, we did a classic descent in Puha Valley.

Overall it was, as I said, a full weekend and we now have some fresh memories of Barcaciu to last us a while.

As one said to me, you never regret going, so, go explore! Ride safe!
