    TR: Haines, AK

    Ok we might not ride quite as hard as Jeremy and Ryland...but Gavan and I did our best this April to do AK the hard way.



    We hit an epic high pressure out in Glacier Bay National Park. The views were pretty stellar:

    The snow was as good as you can ask for:

    And the climbs were rowdy:


    See the full story and more pictures here:

    Awesome TR!! What an epic season. Nice work in scoping out a heli free zone in Haines to earn your turns.

    Anyone can do, more people should. We gotta stop making excuses! (although my excuses are pretty good, don't know about you guys).

    My current agent is LeeLau, so you need to talk to him if you want to take over...haha

    I'm glad everybody enjoyed. And just for the record, the flights for that trip cost under $1000; whereas 1 day of heli skiing there can rack you up that much. And I think we did alright in terms of vert and excitement so there are really no excuses not to do this.

    Yeah, Tyler.
    I can't believe you are a rando racer because I look so much better in Lycra than you.

    People who don't think the Earth is flat haven't skied Vail.
