That week we made it our mission to ski a few different shots on a mountain called Creator. The first day my girlfirend and I rode this nice little bannana line. That day we got a good look at the peak, and decided to go back up the next day and ride the main bowl. Day three brought some tired legs, so we decided to make it a family fun day. We took our neighbor up there, who doesn’t get a chance to get out very much. All in all, three days of pure bliss… The knob in the middle of the picture was the destination for day one. The view from the top of the knob we rode that day. The peak in the distance was the plan for the next day. Monika riding down through a little bottleneck off the knob. Potato and I kicking up some dust. The aftermath. Day two…working our way up to the peak. On this day our boy Michlik (aka easy rider) was in tow. Looking down the barrel. It’s about 3k down to the flats. Monika in surf mode Happy lady. Michlik gettin some….. I love this shot. One for the magz? Aftermath. Three very happy people! Day 3, we went up to just below the knob from day one. Michlik took over on the camera, so its time for a little air “weeee”. The aftermath, ” Creator” has been renamed “Been Had”. Three great days in the AK BC. March 23, 2005 at 3:23 am #581096 Matt 77 Posts Outstanding! I love the shots of you and your dog chasing each other down the “Been Had”.

So where in alaska is this at? 🙂 March 25, 2005 at 7:07 pm #581103 Arash 27 Posts Very nice pics. You guys really have some beautiful mountains up there in Alaska. March 25, 2005 at 7:37 pm #581104 AKluvin 13 Posts Hey Prezwoodz, Im sorry I cant share that info with you, Its secret. NO. Im only joking. All the shots were takin in the summit pass area north of Moose Pass, very low key compared to Turnagain. March 25, 2005 at 8:42 pm #581105 Prezwoodz 11 Posts heh for a minunte there i thought you were serious!! 🙂 Ive never been up there looks great! April 1, 2005 at 9:52 pm #581106 bdub 40 Posts AKluvin, Am I correct in that you guys hiked up Summit ridge via the old ski area? then did you go left (North) or right (South) off the ridge? I can’t quite figure it out. we were thinking about hitting that area up last week (been there quite a few times this season) but went to Haines instead. I really want to hike up Summit Ridge way back, drop in to the North (have to go back past the rocks) then hike up the peak to the North with the enormous face for an easy 3,000′ of run, probably more once you make it to the car. Plus the couloirs in that area are super enticing. Cheers, BW April 3, 2005 at 8:26 pm #581107 AKluvin 13 Posts bdub, The pics are from a mtn thats two drainages to the south of the summit ridge, between canyon and quartz creek. The trip to the way back of the summit ridge is a fun tour, I’ve never actualy droped off to the north into the butcher creek drainge but have skined back into that area ond rode back out. I have rode on to the south into the tenderfoot drainage from way back of the summit ridge. Thats a nice long run back down to the campground. The big face that I think your thinkin of some people call nancys. I’ve talked to a guy who skied it and he said it wes a hell of a ride. It sure would be nice ride that bohemoth some day when she says ok to jump on. I think thats one of the sickest faces in the area. Is this the beast?
