Greetings from Bariloche! Day 6 by Theresa Barth '19
Today we went to the mountain at 9 am and blasted some Sommerkroppen (our new favorite Norwegian song) to get us hyped on our drive up. We went for a two hour classic ski with some speed and technique built in. Then we had lunch at our favorite waffle shop. The waffles consist of 45% crunchy waffle, 40% jam, and 15% whipped cream. Yummy! We had a nice little siesta before heading back out for a skate ski in the afternoon.
We went for a one hour easy ski. By the end, it had gotten very windy and icy, but that wasn’t a problem for us because we were jamming out to some pumping music that was being blasted from the ski hut. In line to go back down the Gondola, we compared our recovery hours and it seems many of us have over 100 hours left to recover which is less than ideal considering there are only 15 hours left until our next ride up the Gondola! But it is no problem because we are a bunch of crafty kids and with our hearty meals, multiple Milka bars, possibly sketchy side-of-the-road churros, and Norwegian pump up music, I’m sure we’ll be more than prepared for our next day.
On the way home, we stopped at the grocery store and stocked up on ice cream to get a couple more thousand calories in before bed time! Overall, it was a very successful day!
