|To our surprise, the terrain around Cerro
Bolsón had not as much snow as we expected, albeit there were still significant snow-covered areas. Therefore, we could not use the 'skikets' as we had originally expected.
The boards worked much better than we expected. Among other things, we found out that we could use our boards to actually climb up rather steep snow-covered hills much better that with nordic boards, and at the same time, their structural flexibility made them more than adequate for alpine-style descents over irregular or uneven snow. We did not even waxed our boards before using them.
As these were the first trial runs of the new 'skikets', we tried to remain prudent in the usage of these things. Our descents just achieved speeds averaging 50 km/h thorough the hills, streams and canyons of that uncharted and virgin spot in Patagonia.
