We were able to squeek in two 4,000 vertical foot runs in about an hour and a half and were loving it. Up high the peaks have been scoured by wind and the snow is a hard packed, but off of the peaks we were treated to some serious fluff. The first run was Girl Mountain and the second was Sail Fish or something like that. The landing zone on sail fish was on a peak that was no bigger than a small truck, this got the heart pumping...then I looked down our steep descent and was pumped up. These guys are serious about their terrain and I love it.
Temps today were below zero farenheit and the wind chill brought it to -30...exposed skin was in danger of frostbite, just after the picture above the guide told me to cover my nose at is was starting to freeze...brrr.
Now we just keep our fingers crossed for good weather and look forward to getting deeper in the chugach range, which is filled with the most beautiful mountains I have ever seen.
