    Sick TR
    Going to AK for the first time (and anytime for that matter) is a life-changing experience. The scale and remoteness of that place just blows everything out of the water. seems like you're in a constant state of bliss when you're up in those peaks... Thanks for the TR

    btw.. as far as the Bush company goes... "I don't know, but I've been told Eskimo pussy is mighty cold"

    Fantastic. I was just at alyeska about 2 weeks ago and indeed, the north face is boner city. We caught it on about a knee deep day, a day after the storm. There are so few skiers there though that it skied like the utah resorts do at noon on a pow day.

    I'm still slaking in getting my TR up, maybe i wait until this one fades a bit.

    Dude aly is an anthill, it gets tracked out real fast, you want no people you should see ALpenglow and Eaglecrest, if its a powder day and you don't score fresh on your last line of the day something is seriously wrong

    And I need a sled to get me back into turni some, shizzle!

    Graham - nice TR. i've only been to AK once. it was on a month long mountaineering trip back in '93 after graduating from college and it was absolutely amazing. your pics and TR are bringing back those memories and are making me itching to get up there again... this time for some skiing. time to start saving the $$$ for a trip like that.

    btw, i am also glad you brought some pow back home with you. thanks mang, i needed that....

    Hmmmm...those tracks seem awfully familiar. That day was sick. It was a pleasure meeting you guys. Hopefully we'll make some tracks together in Tahoe soon.

    Graham, nice to meet you guys. I probably was a bit quiet, but I was pretty convinced that the I was gonna puke from the Cat ride and felt like I was turning various shades of green as we sat there bumping our way down the track.

    Great great pics, i haven't even begun to look at ours yet, but hopefully we have some that will do our trip justice as well.

    I know for a fact that that's no god damn lie. Aly gets tracked up in only a few hours; there simply isn't enough terrain. The only spots you can really get fresh lines after noon is on the High Traverse/Max's Mountain and if you duck the lines into the chutes (on days when they are closed but TNF is open).

    Aplenglow is amazing on powder days. That's the place to hit after storms, if you don't want to drive all the way to Girdweed.

    But this is besides the fact. The above pictures are simply amazing. That's the part of the Alaskan winter that I love.
