A freeride descent of the most active volcano in Southamerica
Ski Touring Severe
The ascent is the same as the normal route, depending on snow conditions it is the fastest way up.
Descent: Be aware that snow conditions on southern volcanos can vary a lot depending on the weather. It could be very hard and exposed to descent in icy conditions or nice and chill during springtime. Also, there are objectives risk on the mountain as hidden crevasses on the top. The steepest section is most likely the beginning of the descent but least exposed. After you take left on Piedra Blanca (front picture), surf a little bit to not get lost on dead ends, and then picture your line down to the multiple exits.
