Awesome. Thanks for the beta photo of the Turnagain area. Cool to see a reference for that stuff.

Well, last day off for the week and the high pressure is holding. My old and tired body on the other hand, not so much. But with age comes wisdom they say, and I say it's time to cheat!!!

All Smiles!
Image

for a heli-bump to these bad boys
Image

and there she goes
Image

time for a quick pause to check out another nearby behemoth
Image

and then focus on the task at hand
Image

and drop it like you just can't stop it
Image
next
Image

oh look, a goat
Image

round one is done
Image

and now we're getting into the shiznit!
Image

skinning to win
Image

staging for the climb
Image

and earning those turns
Image

those sweet sweet turns
Image

Image

Image

Image

damage done
Image

and now if I may say so myself, that was one hell of a 3 day stretch! I think I'm gonna sleep for a week now and dream sweet powder filled dreams. By the way, it's DUMPING out right now! Can you say Refresh?!?

Until next time... :mrgreen:

The high pressure continues and somehow or another the snow still holds. Time for another new line in the backyard/Chugach. Went out with the usual suspects as well as one old friend whom I haven't seen since this: http://splitboard.com/talk/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6777.

The hike started out a little nasty
Image

but turned to a nice stroll a little further up
Image

where we took in views of the mountains around us
Image
Big League, a closer look
Image

and Little League
Image

As we were gawking at the mountains around us, 3 more friends caught up to our group of 4 and we pressed on with a new large group of 7
Image

and the views just got better
Image

the top of Alyeska's Glacier Bowl
Image
and looking down on Alyeska's chair 6 and tram terminal with Girdwood below
Image

We're finally to the top and it's time to drop!
Image

3600' of pure bliss
Image

Image

One of many reasons to snow/splitboard...
Image

Image

Did I mention it was windy out? Very very windy and freaking cold!
Image

which created wind slabs and chaos amongst our group of seven
Image

so we split back into 2 smaller groups and made it to the bottom safely and happy to be alive
Image

a look back up at the "chess board" on which we were all pawns
Image

and a little debris from one of the SEVEN slides we kicked off
Image

now let's get the hell out of here and go get some beer!
Image

Hey everyone,
I'm hoping to drive up to alaska in may and spend most of the month splitboarding in ak. Any of you willing to add one more splitter to your group? Been living and splitboarding the mountains in the eastern sierra out of mammoth lakes for the past 2 years and am hoping to get on some bigger mountains and better snow.

If I'm around and there's snow on the ground, I'm down. PM me and/or give me a ring as the time gets near. That goes for anyone and everyone on here. We'll start "small" and go from there.
