Hello.

Can anyone advise where to go to see the pow at least once?
already spent a week in search of - Thompson pass, Valdez, Fairbanks, Arctic Circle, Denali Park, Valdez again ..
already passed more that 1800 miles.
have plan for a couple of days to go to Cordova, but do not know where to get somewhere with the splitboard.
if there is such a lucky near Valdez - I do not mind the company to make the ascent.
If that - I live in a rented car Ford Focus GPZ 167)
there is still a week of vacation ahead..

Turnagain just got 8 inches. Go on the N aspects of the 2nd layering of mtns. More hiking but that is where the goods are. Also, the avy danger is low right now so you can search for the chutes now too. I had a great week there. Good luck and bring split crampons (hell maybe even actual crampons for some parts). :thumpsup:
