    DAY 12: Tincan Mtn -Todd’s Run

    This was one of trips highlights. The Tincan formation is very long ridge system ending at its summit. The ridge system offers countless skiing opportunities, one could spend a full season touring on Tincan itself. Todd’s Run as called by the locals was named after Todd who was killed on the line as the entire bowl ripped out. When conditions are right this is many’s favorite line on Tincan. I can see why, after 2500 vertical feet and 1 mile of perfect turns I was calling it the best run of my life. Hmmm thinking back…there is a pattern in AK…every run seems to get the “now that was the best run of my life” designation.

    Nice rip on the west face of tincan. I’d love to hit that in stable conditions. Or anything else around there pretty much.

    *** Trip report was from March 30, 2010 –> Last Spring.

    Todd’s Run with the current snowpack/avalanche danger in Turnagain Pass isn’t a run I would pick this week.

    BTW great photos!

    More than agree with the above statement. We actually may cancel this springs trip:( Valdez is less then ideal as well. But it is AK, it will turn around 🙂
