I love the fisheye shot dropping off the summit. Makes me really want to go back to Mexico. Great pictures and report. Congrats on a great ski!

Nice report. A 2WD Wrangler! I guess that's why it was an eep! It looked like nice snow. Maybe because it was still early season? Sometimes that glacier can be bulletproof. I know I'll have to go to Mexico again someday. Neat pictures showing the view from up there.


Sweet trip!!

Thanks for posting this here. Good read. Enjoyed the Izta TR too, and the explanation of the eep. I remember wishing I had my truck on the drive up to the TH when it took the guy we hired 2 hours to make it about 10 miles. Strong effort hauling the skis down there.


Congrads Jordan!

Looks like lugging skis along makes Orizaba a lot more fun, Izta on the other hand.... Enjoyed the TRs.

All. The trip was fun. The skis on Orizaba turned out to be money this year. But you are right about Izta. Felt like trying to ski a 14er in july. The road trip through Mexico was without a doubt the crux.


Crazy awesome!
